Getting ahead and staying ahead with IBSuite

They want a core technology that in its design is different from monolithic legacy core platforms or platforms that have its operational experience in the old on-premise installations. And they want transparent and predictable low implementation cost and total cost of ownership. They want a modern platform and core technology.

“When we wanted to launch a large scale affinity program with a prominent retailer and migrate the existing “income protection” portfolio, it was key for us to find a partner, who could provide a flexible and scalable platform that would enable us to easily configure new products…” Nicolai Meelby, SVP, Topdanmark
Topdanmark wanted to launch an affinity program with one of Denmarks’ largest retailers, offering personal line products to the loyalty customers of the retailer. The current systems at Topdanmark were evaluated but found “not applicable” for the new affinity program. The time needed to set up products had to be short, the flexibility to make changes to underwriting rules on the fly was important. Also, the program needed to be fully synchronized with the existing General Ledger for monitoring and consolidation of numbers.
With IBSuite, Topdanmark got a proven, flexible and scalable platform that enabled them to easily configure new products and launch the affinity program for the first of many products starting with Motor in a record-time of 6 months’ implementation. Besides the affinity program, Topdanmark decided, in parallel, to migrate their income protection portfolio into IBSuite as well. This provided the organization with efficiency, automatization of work processes and improved the overall customer service.
“When we wanted to launch a large scale affinity program with a prominent retailer and migrate the existing “income protection” portfolio, it was key for us to find a partner, who could provide a flexible and scalable platform that would enable us to easily configure new products. On top of that, we needed to succeed in completing the implementation of the end-to-end insurance business platform on a very optimistic time schedule.
I am happy to say that we have succeeded with IBSuite, and IBAs team was very pragmatic to work with when handling the challenges that occurred. This was in particular the case, as the second project included a larger scale migration of policy data. We are happy with the partnership that we believe has only just started.”

“My staff can set up simple products within 1-2 weeks at a rate which gives us competitive advantages without incurring significant cost of development. We greatly enjoy the benefits of IBSuite SaaS platform and of IBA’s ongoing focus on innovation…” Peter Højberg, CEO, AXA Denmark
High costs of running many systems at the same time as expensive manual interactions limited their ability to scale the commercial business to the SMB market through their primary channels (brokers and local carriers).
Lack of automatization for the sales and distribution channels prolonged the sales cycle for new business. Setting up new products was lengthy and could not be done by the AXA team on their own.
Migration of the entire portfolio into IBSuite. Implemented processes that allowed for full automation of the channels ultimately shortening the sales cycle and improved efficiency in the organization as well as for the brokers. Integrations were done smoothly and have added extra insight into the customers by using the IBSuite Customer 360 Overview. Instant launch of a white labeling solution was an extra bonus. AXA DK is now self-sufficient in both setting up new products as well as changing existing products for the SMB market.

Thanks to their accelerator approach and the extremely professional team behind it, we are having a lightning-fast implementation without sacrificing flexibility or future customizability. With IBA we can focus on our clients, knowing that our core will always be capable of anything we may need.” Asis Pardo, Co-founder
Tuio is a newly incorporated Spanish MGA with the ambition of revolutionizing insurance bringing a modern, social and sustainable experience in the Spanish market.
Tuio was looking for a cloud native insurance platform to enable their first product, Home insurance for a new generation of consumers. They wanted to start up on a solid foundation built for today and tomorrow, on a complete proven API-driven platform that would enable them to rapidly grow, expand and scale. The alternative of initially selecting a lighter platform and then painfully having to migrate to a more robust platform in 2-3 years was quickly discarded as not the right approach.
Tuio selected IBSuite from IBA to launch their first, with IBAs accelerator enabling to launch their Product in just a few months. The Team got started on the project in a few days after signature – speed to market is important.
Using the IBA Accelerator method the solution was scoped in a couple of weeks using templates, quickly reaching a common understanding of the expected product and tariff configuration. Once signed off, the solution is being delivered in a series of sprints, making IBSuite REST services available for the Tuio Team to test and validate.
As an MGA start-up, Tuio is rapidly building its new business on a full digital core solution at a reasonable investment and operating cost, gaining the right flexibility and capacity to quickly add products, adapt and grow. The Tuio Team will be trained to self-sufficiently use IBSuite and configure its next generation of products, services and processes.
