AAA Life Implements FAST Components in Under Five Months

October 29, 2019 GMT

ISELIN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 29, 2019--

FAST, a leading software company for the life and annuity industry announced today that AAA Life is in production with FAST insurance components including new business, policy administration and claims. The implementation, which was completed in under five months using a team of five people from FAST and an agile team at AAA Life, integrated AAA’s ecosystem to FAST’s cloud. AAA Life has a successful dedicated program sponsorship that recognized positive organizational change and business readiness, allowing project milestones to be met on time. Additionally, FAST leveraged its partnership with Amazon Web Service Inc. (AWS) and is prepared for AAA’s expected high volumes and planned policy conversion.

“FAST has lived up to everything they said they would. The project was delivered on-time, on-budget and is a major milestone in our journey to transforming the digital experience for all AAA members,” said Jay DuBose, AAA CEO. Matt Scully, AAA CIO said, “Many companies continue to wrap technologies around the core and get significantly less value per dollar spent. By addressing the core platform head-on, we feel like we can accelerate our digital transformation.”

“AAA embraced the agile implementation approach and was extremely proactive about change management in order to harness the value of the software platform and begin issuing policies within only a few months,” shared Tom Famularo, CEO of FAST. “They’ve built their operation to fully take advantage of the FAST platform, to fully leverage our capabilities and truly speed ‘Time-to-Value’ within their organization.”
