se2 Named to InformationWeek 500 for Third Year Running

Recognized as One of America's Top Technology Innovators

TOPEKA, KS--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2013) - se2 has been named to the 2013 InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation's most innovative users of business technology. This is the fourth time in the past five years that se2 has made the InformationWeek 500 list.

"We are excited to receive this ranking from InformationWeek for the fourth time in five years," said se2 CEO Dave Keith. "In 2012, we predicted a seismic shift in the life market to TPA as a core strategy and we heavily invested in adapting our customer-centric, distributed technology to meet the specific needs and challenges of this new trend in the industry. This recognition from InformationWeek validates our foresight and confirms se2 as a trail-blazer leading the industry with innovative digital solutions."

"The theme of this year's InformationWeek 500 is digital business. It's a movement, rooted in data analytics, mobile computing, social networking and other customer focused technologies that are turning companies and industries on their ear," said InformationWeek Editor In Chief, Rob Preston. "Every enterprise is now a digital business -- or needs to become one fast. The organizations in our ranking are leading the way."

InformationWeek commended se2 for the successful conversion of 21,000 life insurance policies for a client onto se²'s enhanced life platform in six months, at a fraction of the cost of typical PAS initiatives. This se² client had launched a "grow through acquisition" strategy. In-house management options were characterized by prohibitive cost structure, high risk due to lack of conversion expertise, and diversion of business and IT resources to conduct 20,000+ hours of non-strategic work. Leveraging se2's state-of-the-art technology eliminated these obstacles with unheard of expediency.

"This distinction, for which we are so grateful, is entirely due to the dedication and creativity of our associates," noted se2 CTO, Brent Littleton. "It's a pleasure and a privilege to work in this environment with people who not only appreciate the primary role of technological advancement in today's competitive market, but also thrive on setting and attaining aggressive business goals."

The InformationWeek 500 list is the most prestigious business technology ranking, showcasing the country's most innovative organizations. The ranking identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology. The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as they spotlight the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
