Product Owner – System of records with AGCS.

The Front Office platforms allow AGCS’s globally spread underwriters or claim handlers to capture the data and manage the lifecycle. The platforms support new business, servicing and claims handling of international insurance businesses across corporate, specialty and mid corporate lines.

This will act as a composite application layer to engage with users to capture, process and surface the information set as appropriate for the context of user and processing stage of the underwriting or claims handling.
