AIG Benefit Solutions Earns Spot on the 2013 InformationWeek 500 List of Top
Technology Innovators Across the U.S.
NEPTUNE, N.J. -- September 10, 2013
AIG Benefit Solutions, the group benefits unit of American International Group
(AIG), has been named to this year’s InformationWeek 500, a list of the top
technology innovators in the United States.
AIG Benefit Solutions was named to the list for development of AIG Benefit
Solutions Gateway^SM, a framework to provide brokers, employers and customers
with online access to a number of services. The Gateway platform now provides
online access for case submission and benefit enrollments, and throughout 2014
additional functions will be offered through the AIG Benefit Solutions Gateway
portal to benefit administrators and insured customers that will enhance their
current online services.
“Our AIG Benefit Solutions Gateway framework has been designed to address
needs in today’s benefits market for greater access to information through all
stages of a case by brokers, employers and employees, and we’re pleased that
our efforts to develop the system have been recognized for inclusion in this
year’s InformationWeek 500,” said Curt Olson, President and CEO of AIG Benefit
Solutions. “The AIG Benefit Solutions Gateway system is part of a broader
investment in developing our technology platform. These projects are designed
to meet customers’ needs for convenience and enhanced online experiences.”
The AIG Benefit Solutions Gateway functions for online case submission and
enrollment were introduced to the market earlier this year, and are available
for AIG Benefit Solutions’ life, disability, and accidental death and
dismemberment insurance, and for voluntary/worksite products including
accident and critical illness. One of the most important features of the
enrollment component is a design which allows tight integration into any
third-party enrollment platform capable of integrating with other services.
This feature allows speed to market and the integration of producers’
platforms for enrollment and benefit administration systems to AIG Benefit
Solutions’ rules engines without the need to develop at the host system.
“The benefits market has changed in recent years, and there is a greater need
for resources from carriers that support enrollment and provide information
about products, especially voluntary products they may not be familiar with,”
Olson said. “AIG Benefit Solutions Gateway is the most recent tool developed
by AIG Benefit Solutions to ease the enrollment process, provide better
education for employees, improve efficiencies for employers and
brokers/agents, and provide for an overall more convenient, more secure
This is the first time AIG Benefit Solutions has been named to the prestigious
list. The full list can be found at www.informationweek.com/500.
AIG Benefit Solutions offers a broad portfolio of products and services to the
employer and affinity benefits markets. Its products include core benefits
such as life, disability and AD&D voluntary/worksite plans including accident,
hospital indemnity and critical illness; business travel accident; and stop
loss and organ transplant insurance for companies that self-fund. Services
include comprehensive enrollment support and resources that help educate
employees and affinity members about their options, and administrative
services that make implementation easier for brokers and administrators.
“The theme of this year's InformationWeek 500 is digital business. It's a
movement, rooted in data analytics, mobile computing, social networking and
other customer-focused technologies that are turning companies and industries
on their ear,” said InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston. “Every
enterprise is now a digital business — or needs to become one fast. The
organizations in our ranking are leading the way.”
