Imperial Fire is customizing and branding the mobile solution and integrating it with their core backend systems using existing web services. “This approach has given us the capability to address iPhone, Android and Windows mobile platforms in a much quicker manner without investing significant time and effort in sustaining a separate mobile technology team” said Scott Proctor, CIO of Imperial Fire and Casualty. “We wanted to focus on bringing good user experience to our customers rather than getting bogged down by the inherent complexity, ever-changing environment, maintenance and support of mobile OS platforms and devices”.

The enterprise class Jarus Mobile solution is purpose-built to suit the specific needs of the insurance industry. It supports multitude of personal and commercial P&C lines and Life insurance. “In addition to the rich and native mobile apps covering all popular platforms, the real strength of Jarus Mobile solution is its overall architecture including secure middleware and the Jarus Mobile API for integrating with carrier backend ”, said Sundar Vallinayagam, CEO of Jarus technologies.
