Berkshire Life Insurance Company of America has hired Bridgeline Software Inc. to help it create a Web-based enrollment system for multi-life disability insurance.

Berkshire Life, Pittsfield, Mass., a unit of Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, New York, wants to use as much of the technology it already owns as possible, according to Bridgeline, Woburn, Mass.

Bridgeline will be using Web services to link the new enrollment system with the old mainframe and imaging systems, Bridgeline says.

Employees will be able to post and update site content from their own desktop computers, without going to a computer room in person, Bridgeline says.
