Transition and support of a critical platform

Tower Insurance

6 Weeks to transition

As part of Tower’s transformation, a decision was made to implement a new core platform across all of its insurance business. The process resulted in the selection of EIS to replace the existing platform.

Tower's history

Since 1869, Tower has shown its ability to innovate, evolve and lead the market with products and services which help 'put right’ what the world can at times do.

Tower’s key focus is its customers and providing amazing claims experiences. The company works hard to resolve customer claims as quickly as possible to allow people to move on from an event as soon as possible.

Continuously rated a top employer, Tower is committed to engaging its people, creating a strong culture and driving transformation to improve the customer experience while challenging insurance industry norms.

Tower’s game changing transformation journey will ensure it has customers at the heart of its products and services today and into the future.

The Problem

As part of Tower’s transformation, a decision was made to implement a new core platform across all of its insurance business. The process resulted in the selection of EIS to replace the existing platform.

During the implementation process, the incumbent platform provider advised it would no longer be able to provide support for their InsuranceFaces and Encore applications.

This issue left Tower facing the challenge of either accelerating its migration to the new EIS platform or finding a new partner to provide continuity of support and allowing the transition to EIS to stay on track without risk.

How We Helped

Quality support and a seamless transition

Both applications, InsuranceFaces and Encore, are critical to Tower’s business success, with hundreds of employees reliant on these applications. Optimation’s experience and ability to respond quickly with a seamless transition was essential to enable Tower to have continuity of support and confidence with the quality of support.

Optimation proved to be the best option to provide Application Support and Service Delivery to these core systems.

Optimation’s 26 years in market provide the experience, capability and expertise that aligned perfectly to Tower’s needs. Application transition, support and modernisation are core to our DNA.

The Outcome

A strong partnership

Our Support practice is ITIL-aligned to ensure compliance with best practice but we know a rigid one-size-fits-all approach won’t suit everyone. For this project, we have worked closely with Tower to create an application support model tuned to suit their business needs and priorities, which involved:

Tower Insurance - Child

-        Application Management

-        Application Incident Management

-        Application Maintenance

-        Application Recovery Plans

-        Service Continuity (24 hours)

-        Information Security Management

-        Failure analysis

-        Change management

-        Service level compliance

The smooth transition and continuity of work on this project as an outcome was achieved by using proven processes and methodology coupled with a strong partnership between Optimation Support and Tower’s IT leadership teams.
