Ando Insurance powers ahead with SSP core insurance system

January 30, 2017 SSP Worldwide

Newly founded New Zealand-based Ando Insurance has started operating SSP's Pure Insurance solution after an eight-month implementation phase.

The client

Ando Insurance provides multi-lines insurance, challenging the traditional insurance company model with a new, simplified business approach.

The challenge

Attaining the agility and flexibility to rapidly launch innovative propositions into the market, which are tailored to meet the individual needs of their customers.

SSP’s solution

Providing a highly configurable core insurance software solution that is designed to combine speedy implementation with real flexibility and ease of use.

SSP was selected by Ando Insurance to provide its Pure Insurance solution in New Zealand late last year.

Ando Insurance provides multi-lines insurance, challenging the traditional insurance company model with a new, simplified business approach, based on customer-centric technology, smart processes and an experienced team. Created by former Lumley CEO John Lyon and a group of partners, and in conjunction with Hollard Insurance of Australia, Ando has achieved significant business growth since launching into the market in 2016.

John’s view is that the New Zealand insurance market will change rapidly over the next few years as the value chain realigns with reinsurers, insurers and brokers all exploring new business models. A raft of changes including demographics, technology, data, regulation, and consumer behaviours means real challenge and opportunity for the insurance sector.

Ando Insurance is then well placed to take full advantage of these market opportunities through its nimble, flexible and customer focused business model. It uniquely enables them to become an evermore disruptive force in the New Zealand market challenging the traditional insurance value chain and existing distribution channels way of doing things. Ando feels that SSP Pure Insurance then underpins their business model providing the agility and flexibility to rapidly launch innovative propositions into the market, tailored to meet the individual needs of our customers.

Paul Miller, SSP general manager, Asia Pacific, said Ando’s dedication and commitment in working together with SSP to achieve a full commercial lines policy administration implementation in less than twelve months was commendable.

“In such a short timeframe, Ando has seen tremendous business growth and it is great that the SSP Pure solution is able to underpin and support their nimble and flexible business model”.

Mike Gardner, Ando’s CIO said that in order to build on success to date and to take advantage of the new market opportunities “we have an aggressive delivery schedule planned for the remainder of this year and next. This will see us bring a range of new products to market delivered via innovative distribution solutions, to enable us to extend and expand the range of services we provide to our partners, intermediaries and customers”.
