Sapiens International (SPNS - Free Report) is benefiting from an expanding international clientele and strong partner base.

Sapien’s initiatives to expand its footprint in the global insurance technology domain are noteworthy.

SPNS expanded its operations across 22 countries, including key regions like North America, Europe (EMEA), South Africa and the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.  

In the European market, particularly in the Nordics, Sapiens demonstrated impressive growth in third-quarter 2023, boasting a significant 13.8% year-over-year increase in revenue.


The upside is further emphasized by Sapiens' recent collaboration with Gjensidige Pensjonsforsikring (GPF), expanding its network in the Nordic insurance landscape.

Through this partnership, GPF successfully implemented Sapiens CoreSuite for Life & Pensions and Sapiens Cloud Services for individual savings, becoming the first insurer in the region to leverage the innovative capabilities of CoreSuite.

The implementation of CoreSuite is poised to enhance GPF's digital capabilities, fostering increased automation and operational efficiency.

With a focus on individual savings, GPF's adoption of CoreSuite aims to provide real-time access to centrally managed data, ensuring a streamlined workflow, accelerated digital transformation and improved customer engagement through a streamlined, cloud-based IT infrastructure.

Sapiens Riding on Portfolio Strength & Expanding Partner Base

Continuing to fortify its position in the insurance industry, Sapiens recently introduced enhanced versions of Sapiens IllustrationPro and Sapiens ApplicationPro, offering innovative features, improved usability and reinforced security measures for a seamless customer and agent experience.

Sapiens is also making strides in the realm of artificial intelligence, with the successful implementation of its AI-powered IDITSuite for a prominent European automotive brand. This development revolutionized self-guarantee and warranty insurance operations, boasting a remarkable 75% acceleration in speed to market.

Sapiens is benefiting from an expanding partner base that now includes Microsoft (MSFT - Free Report) .
