The Winterthur Group and BSB unite their strengths for the deployment of a global solution for the management of non life activities

Louvain-la-Neuve, April 26th 2006. BSB Belgium announces that it has been assigned by the Winterthur Group to carry out the complete make-over of its non life activity. This project is based on the integration of the insurances software IDIT, of which BSB has become the preferential partner for the Benelux and France.

The insurance world is going through drastic changes. While waiting for new consolidations that might come ahead, insurers have to face the increasing competition, combined with new requirements coming from the consumers. These environmental changes force them to react rapidly to the market evolutions while still relying on complicated IT systems that are very often hard to adapt.

BSB (Business Solutions Builders) has a wide experience within the financial sector, mainly in the insurances business thanks to its tailor-made developments and its Insurance Suite solution, specially designed for the integrated management of life insurances. This strong reputation has recently led to a partnership with IDIT Technologies that has conceived and developed a global solution, able to manage all the activities of a non life insurance company, whatever its size.

The IDIT* software

The IDIT software is the result of a profound reflection on the insurance business. Thanks to a strict working method, it integrates the whole activity process, as from the offer administration until the claims processing. At the same time, all the tools facilitating the sales activities, the accounting, the reservations, the follow-up of the statistics, the workflow, … are grouped within one single platform offering one of the most exhaustive functionality ranges.

Beyond these applications that are specific to the insurance business, IDIT has realized a system resulting from a prospective vision. By putting the client and not the product into the heart of its approach, the program projects itself into an environment that is highly favourable to an active commercial management.

In addition, the modular construction of IDIT enables the progressive and harmonious integration with the existing systems, according to the client’s requirements.

Served by a state-of-the-art technology, the IDIT solution is configured in such a way that it can be efficiently deployed within the existing environment.

The deployment at Winterthur

All these advantages have been perceived by the Winterthur Group which gives priority to client, partner and team member satisfaction. Seduced by the solution’s capabilities to respond to all the phases of the insurer’s industrial processes, the Winterthur Group has finally chosen the IDIT system, which is both operational and open.

Other advantages such as the ability to realize rapidly tailor-made developments, the possibility to have a pertinent analyzing tool at disposal, and the possibility to meet in a more precise way the distribution requirements, have certainly contributed to the cumulated choice BSB and IDIT software.

The use of a platform that both modernizes the processes and focuses on service, leads to an increase of the efficiency and a reductions of the costs. It also enables a better management of the accepted risks. A situation of which all the intervening parties can only take advantage.
