DKV Seguros Standardizes on Siebel Healthcare to
Manage Customer Relationships

SAN MATEO, Calif.--(CCNMatthews - Jan 5, 2005) -

Single Portfolio View Enables Spanish Health Insurance Company to
Cross-Sell Insurance Services and Deliver a Rewarding Service Experience

Siebel Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:SEBL), a leading provider of business
applications software, today announced that DKV Seguros is successfully
managing customer relationships using Siebel Healthcare. The Spanish
subsidiary of DKV AG, Europe's largest private health insurance company,
DKV Seguros has deployed Siebel Systems' health insurance-specific CRM
solution to align multichannel customer communications spanning the
Internet, telephone, email, fax, and face to face. DKV deployed Siebel
Healthcare to 40 agents in its call center in Barcelona, Spain, as well
as to 120 agents in its nationwide network of regional branches to
integrate separate silos of policy, claims, and billing information.

"Siebel Healthcare is transforming DKV into a customer-focused, agile
healthcare insurance business," said Marino Gonzalez, General Manager of
Organization and IT Systems, DKV Seguros. "We are at an advanced stage
of our multiphase implementation strategy to create a single portfolio
view of more than 1 million customers, agents, and insurance brokers
across multiple channels of interaction. With this Siebel solution, we
have gained a unified view of our customers' portfolios, medical
authorizations, complaints, and payments management."

The comprehensive suite of insurance sales, service, and claims
applications within Siebel Healthcare enables DKV to manage,
synchronize, and coordinate all customer touchpoints across any channel
of interaction. When a customer contacts DKV to obtain a quote on a new
medical, dental, or other insurance service; inquire about an existing
policy; or make a claim, the representative is able to propose other
health insurance services that complement the customer's portfolio.
Agents can even create and dispatch packages of quotes and certificates
using the customer's preferred channel of communication. The result is a
highly efficient sales and service environment ensuring that every
customer receives a consistent, satisfying service experience.

DKV Seguros (www.dkvseguros.com) is the Spanish subsidiary of DKV AG, a
member of the ERGO Insurance Group -- Europe's largest private insurance
company. The Group is present in 21 European countries, with 31 million
customers.

Siebel Systems pioneered the industry-specific application model and
today delivers 23 industry applications and more than 100
industry-specific solution sets. These solutions, which include Siebel

of their customers and execute key customer-facing business processes
