Calliden has been recognised by Celent, the international strategy consultancy in New York, as one of 28 winners world wide for the use of technology. This was according to a report called Celent Model Insurer 2010: Case Studies of Effective Technology Use in Insurance.
The Celent insurance team selected the winning initiatives based on the business benefits provided. The report also reviews IT best practices and measurable business results used in the evaluation of the Model Insurer Components.
Calliden was cited by Celent for “consolidating multiple systems to a modern platform which enables growth in a start-up operation”. This recognises Calliden’s recent success in converting a number of legacy systems to a new modern platform Sirius.
“Simplifying our business is a key strategic imperative for the group, “ said Calliden’s CEO Nick Kirk.
“Rationalising our systems is an integral part of this process and it is pleasing to be recognised by Celent for achieving a number of important system conversion milestones ”
Calliden commenced its project last year to rationalise existing systems into one insurance system that can be used by all of Calliden’s businesses. The system chosen is the latest version of Sirius which is a proven system built by SSP in the UK.
