“SMA’s research reflects that the maximum value can be gained from investments when Enterprise Document Automation (EDA) is viewed holistically and all forms of communication and all types of information are integrated across the entire enterprise,” said Deb Smallwood, Founder of SMA Strategy Meets Action, a leading Insurance analyst and consulting firm, and co-author of 3CM in Insurance: Customer Communications and Content Management published November 2010. “Insurers that choose an approach that takes all communications, both structured and unstructured data, coming into the company from a wide range of channels, and then create seamless flows of information will have a real competitive advantage. This capability will soon become essential for selling, servicing, and ultimately driving growth through new business and retention.”
“Insurers and other organizations need enterprise document automation that puts the power to manage the complete document lifecycle in the hands of the business user,” said Srini Venkatasantham, vice president, Product Strategy, Oracle Insurance. “Built with features such as rules-based configurability and interactive processing, Oracle Documaker Enterprise Edition makes possible an adaptive approach to enterprise document automation – documents when, where and in the form they’re needed.”
