Cypress Insurance Group Goes Live With VUE Producer Compensation, VUE Producer Management & Compliance, VUE Producer Onboarding and VUE Analytics

Distribution Management Solutions From VUE Software Transform and Streamline Insurer's Business Operations and Improve the Agent Experience

COCONUT CREEK, Fla., Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VUE Software®, the leading provider of distribution and producer management solutions for the insurance industry, today announced that Cypress Insurance Group has gone live with VUE Producer Compensation, VUE Producer Management & Compliance, VUE Producer Onboarding™ and VUE Analytics. These distribution management solutions multiply efficiencies for Cypress and streamline the organization's technology enterprise-wide.

An organization with approximately 150 million in annualized premium for personal and commercial property and casualty (P&C) insurance, Cypress sought a commission management system to integrate with its newly implemented policy management and billing technology. The insurer was impressed not only with VUE Software's comprehensive incentive compensation management solution, but also with the organization's flexible, advanced solutions for agent management and compliance, agent onboarding, portal access and analytics.

"We were a fully outsourced operation. One of our biggest challenges was to be able to insource our technology instead," said Dan Colarusso, SVP of Insurance Operations and CIO at Cypress. "We had an opportunity to lower our costs by using state-of-the-art technology to reduce the number of people servicing our business functions. VUE Software allowed us to do that by integrating with our policy administration system and general ledger system while providing a front end for our agents. VUE Software is a technology partner that is truly a partner, a member of our team we can count on."

In addition to enterprise-wide integration for its distribution modernization efforts, Cypress is reaping the benefits of dramatic time-savings, error reduction, sharply reduced manual involvement and efficiency improvements. For example, VUE Analytics (formerly VUE Horizon Analytics) enables Cypress business users to access, analyze and present information directly from technology system data. They quickly generate ad-hoc reports without information technology (IT) team involvement, accelerating and improving decision-making at all levels.

"VUE Software is pleased to bring end-to-end distribution and producer management to Cypress," said Abhinav Dave, EVP of VUE Software. "Because our comprehensive solutions deliver results as individual components or as a suite, we're able to understand and meet insurance organizations' needs across the board — from rapid producer onboarding to up-to-date compliance measures, accurate commission payments and results analysis."

VUE Producer Compensation, VUE Producer Management & Compliance and VUE Producer Onboarding are three components of VUE Distribution Management Suite. Cypress began implementing the fourth component, VUE Producer Self-Service Portal, and plans to fully leverage it later in 2014.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...

Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add sc...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage.

As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
