OneShield’s Services Designer

External applications can execute business transactions remotely using pre-defined APIs.

A collection of SOA Web Services in OneShield’s service layer provide a robust framework for building additional services for B2B and B2C needs. This collection of micro-services allows external applications to remotely execute business transactions on the OneShield platform. Any processing that has traditionally been tied to the User Interface, or available solely within the platform, has been de-coupled and made available as a service.

Additionally, all SOA applications built on the transaction platform can then be accessed simultaneously through our portals or other applications leveraging OneShield’s service layer. The service layer uses “headless transaction processing” with a variation of XML allowing configurable service operation request and response payloads. Ultimately, this means you have a completely configurable end-to-end software platform that automates and simplifies almost every stage of the insurance policy lifecycle using a mix of OneShield and third-party solutions.

Hundreds of Possible Integrations

To date, using the service layer, OneShield has integrated with over 200 third-party systems and application solutions — enabling the insurance industry’s myriad of internal and external systems to request and send data.

Quickly Generate User Interfaces

Whether you are integrating document generation solutions, enterprise content management systems or other third-party applications, the OneShield Service Layer leverages an ExtJS framework to create a rich user interface experience with extensive web browser compatibility and device mobility.

Enhance Performance & Lower TCO

Leveraging OneShield’s service layer allows clients to significantly enhance system performance and lower the total cost of ownership of OneShield’s technology platform.

Complete Data Security

OneShield’s SOA Web Services securely open up almost all processes and workflows to external systems while allowing users to self-configure aspects of the incoming and outgoing data requests.

OneShield Software Enhances Digital Strategy with the Introduction of OneShield's Services Designer

OneShield has launched its Transaction Engine Service Layer, delivering major enhancements to its core framework and expanding its web services capabilities.

After more than a year of design, coding, and testing involving teams in three countries, OneShield Software (www.OneShield.com) has deployed significant refinements to its cloud-hosted “As-A-Service” (AAS) technology platform for financial services core systems. Making the most of each customer interaction is at the forefront of OneShield’s technology strategy and its core platform has been enabled to run in a headless manner. 

Read Press Release

“With Services Designer, OneShield clients can expedite integrations with an even wider range of third-party applications thereby lowering implementation costs. The ability to integrate APIs with emerging technologies as the market dictates, let’s our clients capitalize on competitive market advantages by accessing a robust framework for building additional services for B2B and B2C needs, and any process implemented on the OneShield platform can be exposed AAS.”

OneShield’s Services Designer

OneShield’s general philosophy is to implement as much business functionality as possible via configuration. In keeping with this philosophy, these services are configurable using OneShield’s Designer tool and can be tailored to specific organization, product or channel needs.  

The benefit is, our clients can utilize what is already provided by OneShield leveraging the framework or they can add new services extending the API layer as needed.
