New business platform to take H. Savy Insurance to next level of service excellence

17-November-2014


The year 2014 has been an exciting and transformative year for H. Savy Insurance Co Ltd. Customers have seen – and above all – felt the quantum improvement in the company’s service delivery as well as enjoyed new and/or re-packaged product launches since the start of the year.

This present wave of changes started in 2013 when the company’s board agreed to invest over R6 million in revamped premises and business platform with the overriding aim of improving customer experience and embedding modern functionalities and best practices in the middle and back offices.

For most of its history, H. Savy Insurance has served its clients from the second floor of Maison La Rosière in rather cramped premises. Growth in business over the past ten years saw the company taking over additional offices on the first floor of the same building facing the Immaculate Conception Cathedral. It was a move that greatly enhanced customer service experience, bringing its service to a more accessible level, and helping the company grow to become one of the leading general business insurers in the archipelago.

Growth in business and friendlier premises magnified some major deficiencies in the Amarco AIMS business platform that the company has been using since the year 2000. While the AIMS system has proved highly stable and robust in operation, it lacked many business functionalities and suffered from chronic integration problems between part of the finance module and the underwriting modules. Besides, the architecture was complex and convoluted with many add-on fixes as the programmer implemented some user-demand changes over its life cycle. Under extreme usage, the system would operate in slow mode, causing both colleagues and customers unnecessary frustration and sometimes, even visible aggravation.

Since customers are at the centre of its success, the company felt that such a situation was not acceptable and it took the challenge to undertake its biggest transformation phase as it entered its 20th anniversary. The objective was to provide the fastest, most engaging and most seamless level of service to the company’s growing pool of customers and to do so in pleasant surroundings.
