According to Steven Leigh, principal analyst at Gartner (News - Alert), the life insurance industry has struggled with e-app adoption over the past 20 years and has finally come to terms with it, as most of the barriers to adoption have been gradually overcome.

With e-app adoption slowly gaining recognition, Insurance Technologies LLC, a provider of innovative sales and regulatory automation solutions to the insurance and financial services industries, is stated to have announced the release of FireLight 2.1 with mobile and e-signature capabilities that have been certified by IRI.

With a familiar user interface, the Web application has a powerful rules engine that guides agents through a simplified and seamless application and business process workflow.
