Aflac Earns Spot On 2012 InformationWeek 500 List Of Top Technology Innovators Across America

COLUMBUS, Ga., Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aflac, the number one provider of supplemental insurance in the United States, today announced that it has landed on the 2012 InformationWeek 500 list, an annual listing of the nation's most innovative users of business technology.  This is the 10th consecutive year that Aflac has appeared on the prestigious list, which was revealed last night at an awards ceremony in California.

InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing, and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of America's best-known companies. 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.

"We are proud to appear on the 2012 InformationWeek 500 list for a 10th consecutive year," Aflac Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer Michael Boyle said. "As we continue to grow our new group insurance business and our traditional individual product offerings, it is vital to maintain a nimble, adaptable approach to information technology. This recognition validates that our team has embraced winning strategies and practices in a very positive way."

"The InformationWeek 500 has recognized the most innovative users of business technology for 24 years, and this year's innovations were particularly impressive," said InformationWeek Editor in Chief Rob Preston. "What the editors looked for were unconventional approaches — new technologies, new models, new ways of grabbing business opportunities and solving complex business problems with IT."

Aflac, a leading innovator in the insurance industry, has been engaged in developing the Aflac Wingspan® Enrollment Solutions project as part of a multi-year initiative to increase sales and improve customer retention. The innovative program integrates Aflac's existing enrollment software with the enrollment software of leading external enrollment solutions providers so that employees experience a seamless, one-stop shop for both core and voluntary benefits enrollment and communication.
