They have a collaborative and inclusive culture with a powerful product that has been selected and deployed with leading Tier 1 North American carriers. They are aligned with our FINEOS culture, market focus and technology platform, and we are excited to combine with the Limelight Health team to accelerate our combined growth in North America and globally.”

Limelight Health solutions streamline and automate the sales and underwriting functions for group benefits insurers, enabling carriers to win more business with faster, more accurate proposals and an online broker interface. The suite of products for rating, underwriting, and quoting will be available as an optional component of FINEOS AdminSuite, while continuing to be available to the market as a standalone SaaS product solution which readily integrates with third-party and legacy core solutions.

FINEOS and Limelight Health have already built integrations between their products to enable joint go-to-market and system delivery to meet their clients’ needs. This acquisition will enable deeper integration and make it easier to do business with the unified company. The objective is to provide a strong and seamless user experience to everyone inside and outside the carrier’s business operations, making the FINEOS Platform an even more attractive offering to the employee benefits industry.

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to complete quickly. As FINEOS and Limelight Health integrate the business over the coming months, the priority will be to continue to operate on a business as usual basis in order to meet customer needs.
