REHOVOT, Israel, May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Sapiens International Corporation N.V. (SPNS) (NASDAQ and TASE: SPNS), a global provider of innovative insurance software solutions, announces today the successful go-live of Sapiens IDIT Software Suite at DirectAsia.com Hong Kong. This deployment follows the successful implementation of IDIT software suite at DirectAsia.com Singapore, in June 2010.
DirectAsia.com is planning to further expand its footprint into other countries in the region, leveraging the power of IDIT web-based direct insurance software, which is built on modern Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). DirectAsia.com was awarded the CELENT Worldwide Model Insurer Award 2012 for changing the way automobile insurance is sold. This was possible due to their deployment of the IDIT Software Suite.
DirectAsia.com is a member of Whittington, an international insurance investment and service business, headquartered in Singapore. The company is dedicated to providing bespoke and innovative solutions to the insurance industry. DirectAsia.com was formed to challenge the existing agency-based personal lines insurance industry in Asia.
