LONDON, 7 January, 2020 — Willis Towers Watson and eBaoTech, a global leading digital insurance solution provider, have announced that they will team up to provide a robust, one-stop insurance middle office platform to accelerate digitalisation across the sector.

The collaboration will see Willis Towers Watson’s rating engine, Radar Live, integrated with eBaoTech’s middle office platform, InsureMO®, which is designed for open API collaboration. The bundled solution will greatly enhance the capability of insurers, brokers, agents, MGAs and InsurTech startups to handle the overwhelming volume, variation and speed demands of today’s digital insurance marketplace. Based on cloud-native architecture, the middleware platform contains a full set of insurance microservices across all general, life, group and health products and processes such as quotation, underwriting, endorsement, cancellation and renewal.

Willis Towers Watson’s Radar Live supports a wide range of outputs to be deployed in real time at the point of quote for pricing and underwriting. The price delivery platform has been designed to offer better pricing flexibility and responsiveness to market developments. It also creates material operational efficiencies and reduces the risk of costly rate implementation errors.
