JERSEY CITY, N.J. and RALEIGH, N.C. — Dec. 1, 2020 — Buckle, a tech-enabled financial services company, announced its licensed carrier, the Gateway Insurance Company, has selected Sapiens Americas, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sapiens International Corporation, (NASDAQ and TASE: SPNS), a leading global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry.

“The Gateway Insurance Company team is deeply familiar with the wide range of functionality of Sapiens’ digital solutions, so this was a natural selection,” said Marty Young, Co-founder and CEO of Buckle. “When Buckle acquired Gateway in June, Sapien’s flexibility allowed us to onboard Gateway efficiently and quickly. We look forward to our continued relationship to efficiently manage accounting, reporting, and reinsurance contracts, particularly through rapid growth and expansion.”
