Consulting, technology and outsourcing services company, Capgemini, has deployed a Cloud-based system to deliver an outsourced core insurance platform for its Home Warranty Insurance product to the New South Wales Self Insurance Corporation (SICorp).
The contract is the first Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) deployment by Capgemini in Australia.
The company said it will enable SICorp to configure, build, host and run its Home Warranty Billing, Policy and Claims Solution using Guidewire InsuranceSuite and will be hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
According to the government agency, the solution will allow SICorp to leverage the technology to streamline its processes by integrating with its data warehouse for portfolio reporting and enable stakeholder partners to have secure access to transaction processing.
“Our customers are continually looking to take advantage of the benefits of the AWS Cloud to not only reduce costs but to become more agile and innovative. That applies to the public sector in Australia as much as it does to private industry,” Amazon Web Services A/NZ head of channels and alliances, Stefan Jansen, said.
“We are delighted to be working closely with Capgemini to deliver the scalability and flexibility SICorp requires.”
Capgemini Australia senior vice-president and managing director of sectors and marketing, Manoj Khera, said the deployment reinforces Capgemini’s leadership in providing innovative outcomes in the public and financial services sectors.
“Capgemini is a leading Guidewire Integrator globally and together with AWS, we are making the benefits of Cloud a reality for businesses. The PaaS insurance offering will accelerate the delivery of new and innovative services to SICorp and deliver more value to their customers. We are excited to be seeing our first full suite implementation here in Australia that will deliver the best in class billing, policy and claims solution.”
