TOPEKA, Kan. (July 23, 2018) – SE2, a leading technology and third-party administration (TPA) company for the North American Life and Annuity (L&A) insurance industry, announced today that it has won a Gold Globee Award for New Business-to-Business Product for its Digital Direct Life Solution and a Silver Globee Award for Fastest Growing Company.

Launched in September 2017, Digital Direct Life is the first no touch end-to-end life insurance as-a-service solution that automates the entire life customer acquisition process, from application to approval, from underwriting to policy issue, from all post issue service to claims. This solution allows insurers to create and launch direct-to-consumer products in just months, not years.

In 2017, SE2’s employee strength grew over 58 percent and the company continued to expand its global presence with office growth in Waterford, Ireland, Bridgewater, N.J., and Dallas, TX. SE2 currently launches on average 15 new products for clients in any rolling 12-month period and issues nearly 200,000 new business applications annually. SE2 has over $100 billion of assets under administration and transmits upwards of 200 million records to DTCC every month (the highest in the country). Additionally, SE2’s contact centers handle over 2 million calls for its clients annually.

“Digital Direct Life transforms the way life insurance carriers acquire mid-market and millennial customers by dramatically improving the end-to-end customer experience while helping clients future-proof their businesses and navigate the digital evolution,” said Vinod Kachroo, CIO, SE2. “Since the launch of Digital Direct Life, SE2 has seen rapid growth, and it is an honor for the Globee Awards to recognize these accomplishments.”

More than 80 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated, and their average scores determined the 2018 award winners. Winners will be honored in San Francisco on Monday, July 30, 2018 during the annual SVUS Red Carpet Awards Ceremony Dinner in San Francisco attended by the finalists, winners, judges and industry peers.
