Kaboodle Expands Partnership Alliance with Prelude Software

Kaboodle, an insurance collaborative that delivers innovative products and services to insurers, and Prelude Software, a leading provider of payment management technology, have expanded their partnership to include new collaborative payment services deployed on Microsoft’s Azure platform, integrated with multiple Kaboodle partner ecosystem offerings. The new services were deployed for Kaboodle clients and partners on July 1, 2018. 

Kaboodle is committed to be the only partner our clients will ever need by providing diversity in our offerings and expanding our pre-integrated products and services.  Like all Kaboodle Collaborators, Prelude's existing products and services can be made available to current and future Kaboodle customers through a single contract that bundles a variety of pre-integrated components from the entire community of Kaboodle partners. Prelude Software and Kaboodle are well positioned to have a long-standing, successful partnership and are working together to deploy new and innovative data services to the Kaboodle community within the next year. 

Prelude Software continues to actively champion and fully support insurers’ innate desire to increase customer satisfaction while reducing inefficiencies and cost relative to outbound payment processing. As a disbursement hub, Prelude’s PayPilot® seamlessly interfaces with both the originating core systems and third-party payment method providers, like Zelle, eChecks, Mastercard and Visa to transact behind the scenes to provide a perpetually growing, robust superset of payment-method capabilities and related ancillary processes to support its clients’ requirements for outbound payment processing.  Among the many processes that are native to PayPilot, like MICR check and ACH, the seamless integration with 3rdparty platforms offers an unsurpassed superset of capabilities that can be enabled, per each clients business rules to have as few or as many of these capabilities configured; meaning PayPilot can scale over time per the clients business needs.  Clients that use PayPilot get a disbursement hub that immediately allows best practices for outbound payments to be applied across as much of their enterprise as they choose.  

“Our relationship with Prelude continues to expand as they launch new products and services, and as we determine innovative ways to package their offerings with those provided by other Kaboodle Collaborators,” said Jeff Brown, President of Kaboodle. “Prelude is an outstanding example of a partner who engages the Kaboodle ecosystem to the fullest extent, for the benefit of customers and partners alike.”

“The strength and value of the Kaboodle alliance of companies for insurers is not only unique, but quite brilliant,” said Steve Root, President of Prelude Software. “It is clear that Kaboodle is focused on making things easy for carriers and this fits our 30+ years of proven track record of doing the same as it relates to outbound payment processing. The partnership of Kaboodle and Prelude Software now makes the end-to-end solution for insurers complete.”
