Modern Woodmen of America, a fraternal financial services organization founded in 1883, has announced that it will build a new path into the future through an agreement with San Josè, CA- based Sureify. Through this partnership, Modern Woodmen will look to fortify its member customers’ digital service experiences.
The new collaboration will allow the insurer to expand through mobile- and app-based self-service tools, a business necessity heightened in today’s remote-operations environment. Sureify was selected to assist with the digital transformation because of its successful history of equipping insurers with new modernization methods, including the award-winning LifetimePlatform.
“This partnership with Sureify aligns with our technology initiatives and meets our members’ expectations,” explained Jerry Lyphout, Modern Woodmen’s Chief Operations Officer. “Sureify has a great track record of creating the tech pieces that help insurers hold onto their identity while updating the customer experience to meet today’s needs. We look forward to working with Sureify to guide us through this process.”
Bryan Padgette, Senior Vice President for Sureify, applauded the insurer’s willingness to venture into the new digital landscape. “Modern Woodmen is known not just for its products and history, but also for its strong commitment to members and community service. It’s an honor to help them increase their digital footprint and advance the organization’s service model. We look forward to helping them serve their members and communities with technology that will greatly benefit members.”
The two companies expect to see immediate positive results from the modernization process already in progress.
Sureify’s mission is to modernize the life insurance and annuity industry by helping carriers acquire, service, and engage their customers with one enterprise platform: Lifetime. We enable omnichannel sales with LifetimeAcquire, a product that drives placement rates via quoting, e-application, automated underwriting, and new business transmission. With LifetimeService, insurers are offering their in-force customers comprehensive self-service portals and native applications. Lastly, the product that started it all, LifetimeEngage, fosters a lifelong relationship between carriers and their policyholders with multifaceted engagement programs and analytics, leading to greater lifetime value of each policyholder.
