Many insurance companies are burdened with legacy systems that can't handle today's demands, according to SAP. Camilion's products will be combined with SAP's Business All-in-One for Insurance ERP (enterprise resource planning) application, resulting in a suite that insurers can use to modernize their operations, SAP said.
Other plans include expanded mobile applications for Camilion's quoting and underwriting software, SAP said.
The companies had partnered for some time, with SAP having already embedded Camilion technology into its insurance offerings.
Camilion also partners with SAP rival Oracle, which also offers a set of applications for insurers.
