Sapiens IDITSuite core solution for short term (P&C) business was chosen to improve time-to-market and reduce complexity for new insurance products 

Holon, Israel, August 23, 2023Sapiens International Corporation, (NASDAQ and TASE: SPNS), a leading global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry, today announced that a tier-1 bank in South Africa went live with Sapiens IDITSuite for Property & Casualty in Namibia as the core system for its short term (non-Life) insurance business there. The bank has already been using IDITSuite for its core short term operations in South Africa, in addition to Sapiens CoreSuite for Life & Pensions for its Life & Annuities business. 

IDITSuite was chosen by the bank for its expansion into Namibia based on its satisfaction with the existing relationship with Sapiens and the successful implementation of Sapiens IDITSuite in South Africa. Sapiens will operate the bank’s core short term systems in Namibia, in addition to a book of business recently acquired there by the bank from another South African insurance company. At this stage, the implementation will focus on personal lines of business, including motor, home cover, portable possessions, home contents, and personal liability. 

“We are extremely pleased to see our successful implementation in South Africa result in a satisfied customer electing to extend our partnership into a new region,” said Roni Al-Dor, Sapiens President and CEO. “This is the realisation and beginning of a broader African expansion strategy from an operational base in South Africa.” 

Sapiens IDITSuite is a digitally led, award-winning, end-to-end, cloud-based modular insurance platform; supporting personal and commercial lines of business from acquisition to billing, claims and renewal.

There are important factors that could cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to differ materially from the results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to: the degree of our success in our plans to leverage our global footprint to grow our sales; the degree of our success in integrating the companies that we have acquired through the implementation of our M&A growth strategy; the lengthy development cycles for our solutions, which may frustrate our ability to realize revenues and/or profits from our potential new solutions; our lengthy and complex sales cycles, which do not always result in the realization of revenues; the degree of our success in retaining our existing customers or competing effectively for greater market share; difficulties in successfully planning and managing changes in the size of our operations; the frequency of the long-term, large, complex projects that we perform that involve complex estimates of project costs and profit margins, which sometimes change mid-stream; the challenges and potential liability that heightened privacy laws and regulations pose to our business; occasional disputes with clients, which may adversely impact our results of operations and our reputation; various intellectual property issues related to our business; potential unanticipated product vulnerabilities or cybersecurity breaches of our or our customers’ systems; risks related to the insurance industry in which our clients operate; risks associated with our global sales and operations, such as changes in regulatory requirements, wide-spread viruses and epidemics like the recent novel coronavirus pandemic, which adversely affected our results of operations, or fluctuations in currency exchange rates; and risks related to our principal location in Israel and our status as a Cayman Islands company. 

While we believe such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, should one or more of the underlying assumptions prove incorrect, or these risks or uncertainties materialize, our actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.
