Appian, the software company that automates business processes, is announcing the availability of the Connected Underwriting Life Workbench, a solution engineered to centralize and improve the underwriting experience for the insurance sector.

The Connected Underwriting Life Workbench is an underwriting solution pre-built on the Appian Platform that unifies insurer workflows and data in an automated, end-to-end process. Designed with both data fabric functions and AI architecture—including generative AI (GenAI) capabilities—to beget rapid data and integration connectivity and content processing at scale, Life Workbench enables customers to realize ROI faster and enhance their competitive edge.

Additionally, Life Workbench offers a pre-built integration with Swiss Re’s Magnum Pure, an automated life insurance underwriting solution underpinned by Swiss Re’s Life Guide.

The combination of Appian’s AI, automation, data fabric, and case management experience with Swiss Re’s automated underwriting engine brings customers a streamlined, comprehensive, and simplistic underwriting experience.

"Today's customers demand seamless digital experiences, and insurers can't afford to be held back by sluggish underwriting processes and data silos. Appian Connected Underwriting Life Workbench is a game-changer,” said Jacob Sloan, industry vice president, global insurance, Appian. “It combines automation, data fabric, and plug-and-play integrations to accelerate underwriting, helping insurers avoid unprofitable risks and ensuring a superior experience for both customers and underwriters.”

Appian and Swiss Re’s combined technology centralizes the underwriting processes within a single pane of glass, surfacing relevant data from disparate systems. It further enhances productivity by alleviating underwriters of tedious, manually intensive information collection and exception handling, according to the companies.

The underwriting process is also optimized with dashboards and KPIs, introducing visibility into underwriting that helps improve overall performance and workflow efficiency.

"This offering is powered by Magnum, Swiss Re's automated underwriting solution and allows business users to render point of sale underwriting decisions faster and more seamlessly, ultimately improving the experience for the end consumer. We are delighted to utilize our product innovation expertise to help bring this offering to market,” said Jason Render, head Magnum Americas, life and health solutions, Swiss Re.
