SHEBOYGAN, WI: Horizon Systems and Services selects InRule Technology’s Business Rules Management System (BRMS) as their decision making solution within Horizon’s ALL*Points policy and claims administration solution. Horizon Systems and Services, is a provider of end-to-end policy and claims (P&C) administration solutions caters to both small and mid-size carriers.

Insures of all sizes face similar challenges ranging from scarcity of skilled resources, desire for modernization and transformation and need to be nimble and continuously responsive to industry markets, agents, and insured clients.

Horizon by incorporating InRule into its offering can enable enterprise-wide business rules to be defined and maintained for all key core functional areas supported by Horizon’s ALL Points system. This includes its policy, rating, underwriting, claims, billing, reinsurance, documents, third party data integration, and more.

“By incorporating InRule into ALL*Points we are able to provide our customers with a remarkably easy, powerful and cost-effective approach to create and manage business rules. By replacing traditional programming with user configurable rules, our clients gain the advantage of improved business agility, efficiency in managing complex business decisions, and the ability to most effectively respond to continuous market changes. Our clients have already seen real business benefits from the ALL*Points system, and adding capabilities provided by InRule gives them a significant competitive advantage,” adds Kurt Kwekkeboom, CEO of Horizon Systems and Services

InRule allows for both non-technical users to write and manage rules and calculations in applications without need for programming. Through this approach it is able to create transparency into business logic by centralizing it outside of application code. InRule being embedded into ALL*Points gives Horizon’s existing and future insurance clients an added advantage.

Horizon’s existing and future insurance clients through this partnership receive an affordable approach to enjoy the flexibility in business workflow design and business rule authoring which was previously only available to larger insurers. These enhanced capabilities are currently being delivered to new Horizon customers and are made available to existing Horizon customers through an upgrade program.
