Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Exton, PA -- iPipeline™, a leader in on-demand software that supports marketing, selling, and processing solutions for the nation’s top insurance carriers, distributors and their producers, today announced it has been granted United States Patent No. 7,689,444 by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The patent covers a computerized method for preparing insurance applications. The patent, issued on March 30, 2010 from U.S. Patent Application Number 10/370,344, was filed on February 19, 2003. A continuation application has been filed claiming additional subject matter.

“iPipeline is proud to have been granted United States Patent No. 7,689,444. Under the method covered by patent, the completion of an insurance pre-application can be outsourced to a service provider, which reduces insurance broker or producer involvement in the application process. The benefits to the industry as a whole are enormous when you consider the speed to market advantages, gained efficiencies, and reduced underwriting time,” said William Atlee, Chief Strategy Officer at iPipeline and an inventor of the patent. “We believe the patented method of preparing insurance applications is of particular benefit in non-traditional markets such as banks and broker-dealers, and we are pleased to have brought this innovation to the insurance industry.”
