Portuguese Fraternal Society Of America Chooses Andesa

Written by: Andesa Services

The Portuguese Fraternal Society of America, a nationwide fraternal organization based in San Leandro, California, has selected Andesa Services, a leading provider of comprehensive, integrated solutions for life insurance and annuity carriers and producers, to provide PFSA with policy administration, illustrations, and online agent and member portals.

PFSA will convert approximately 38,000 active life insurance contracts to Andesa’s secure, cloud-based administration systems. PFSA agents will be able to access member data and submit new business applications via Andesa’s online agent portal, with zero paper and a process that limits data entry to one-time; with data flowing directly from the illustration to the admin system.

“We are excited at the opportunities created by this move,” PFSA Executive Treasurer and CFO Helen Vieira said. “Andesa’s solutions will allow us to provide policy information to existing members, bring new products to market faster via a streamlined sales cycle, mitigate risk, create efficiencies in the home office and more. We fully expect that these business process improvements will result in increased member satisfaction and sustainable growth.”

“Updating to a modern and flexible technology platform can be a positive game changer for a fraternal organization,” said Ron Scheese, President and CEO of Andesa Services. “Our team is beyond excited that PFSA has chosen Andesa to partner in helping achieve their business objectives.”

PFSA is the second nationwide fraternal society to choose Andesa’s robust, cloud-based life insurance solutions. Earlier this year, the National Catholic Society of Foresters announced its decision to move more than 30,000 active contracts to the Andesa system.
