COR.FJA Life Factory chosen to ensure lasting consolidation of the DEVK
life insurance platforms

(Leinfelden-Echterdingen, 6 February 2012) - The Cologne-based insurance
company DEVK Versicherungen (DEVK) has opted for the COR.FJA Life Factory
policy management system as its central platform for the introduction of
modern life insurance products and consolidation of its current IT
platforms within the life insurance segment. The resulting volume of orders
placed with COR&FJA is in the low eight-digit range. This represents a
continuation of the trend that has been observed in recent years whereby
life insurance companies are relying on COR&FJA's standard software
solutions to an increasing extent.

The main factors that swung the decision in favour of COR.FJA Life Factory
were the high degree of prefabrication in the standard software and the
high level of migration know-how offered by COR&FJA. These advantages will
provide DEVK with a means of not only launching the new generation of
unisex products as early as the beginning of 2013, but also migrating the
first tranche of contracts from one of the current platforms almost
simultaneously in order to further optimise the management processes.

Apart from this, DEVK is also anticipating other economic effects in the
medium and long term as a consequence of its participation in the annual
COR.FJA Life Factory standard release development process, now supported
jointly by ten customers, and its partial assumption of the DEVK-specific
fields of development.

DEVK is therefore planning to install the new system in close cooperation

with COR&FJA right from the very first stage while itself assuming overall
responsibility. To this end, the two partners developed and defined an
appropriate collaboration model within the framework of the previous
preliminary study and will launch the project on this basis in the very
near future.

Current plans provide for a period of less than four years for the
implementation of the entire system installation project and the
replacement of DEVK's three existing IT platforms.
