Ebix’s P&C Broker Division Receives Award from ACORD for eForms

Ebix, Inc. (NASDAQ:EBIX), a leading international developer and supplier of software and e-commerce solutions to the insurance industry, today announced its receipt of an award from insurance industry standards forum ACORD. The award was presented in recognition of Ebix’s support of ACORD standards in the provider’s eForms Viewer.

Ebix’s eForms Viewer, which incorporates an ACORD XML standard in its operations, enables all correspondents and agents working in a property and casualty (P&C) insurance environment to collaborate and contribute data to electronic forms used by agency management systems.

ACORD (the Association for Cooperative Operations Research and Development) is a global, nonprofit insurance association that promotes the development and use of standards for the insurance, reinsurance, and related financial services industries.

John Kellington, senior vice president, ACORD, said, “On behalf of ACORD, I want to congratulate Ebix on receiving a 2009 ACORD Innovative Implementation Award. I also want to commend them for their ongoing leadership in the marketplace and for their ACORD-based solutions that meet industry needs.”

The eForms Viewer is a part of EbixASP, a Web-based ASP-model management system. EbixASP supports all lines of P&C insurance managed by US insurance distributors including independent agencies, brokerages, managing general agencies, insurance wholesalers and excess/surplus lines brokers. The eForms Viewer and EbixASP are both developed by Ebix’s US P&C brokerage systems division based in Atlanta.

Jeff Larson, General Manager of the division, said, “Through the use of ACORD standards, we can provide our customers with robust automation solutions, that not only provide them with greater convenience and efficiency, but also promote greater viability and strategic advancement of the industry. We’re grateful for the recognition received from ACORD in the form of this very special award.”
