COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (April 9, 2010) – Insurance Technologies LLC, the premier provider of illustration and point-of-sale software for the financial services and brokerage industries, announces the successful implementation of  ForeSight™ for Thrivent Financial for Lutherans to support their need for an on-line Variable Annuity Hypothetical and Hypothetical Historical Sales Illustration system

This strategic investment in ForeSight has allowed Thrivent Financial for Lutherans to deploy their first Variable Annuity Sales and Marketing system leading to great success in 2009 (gaining Market Share and moving into the "Top 20" in an otherwise down market for 70%+ of today's VA manufacturers).

ForeSight was selected by Thrivent not only for its innovative reputation, but as the best fit for their needs. ForeSight's illustration presentations were immediately recognized as beneficial for their sales team and investors by providing a point-of-sale resource to educate and inform financial representatives about the living benefits, death benefits, riders and investment options of Thrivent's VA products. One illustration from ForeSight says more than hundreds of words in a detailed product description. With ForeSight, Thrivent is equipped with a proven, powerful and persuasive learning and sales tool needed in today's marketplace.

"By leveraging ForeSight's flexibility, Thrivent Financial for Lutherans rolled-out the solution to all their financial representatives in 2008, as a means of improving their ease of doing business." says David Fenimore, Insurance Technologies' CIO.
