JMR Software is pleased to announce a new project to deliver data migration services in partnership with Charles Taylor InsureTech for DELA co-operative, a funeral services and life insurer based in Eindhoven, Netherlands.

The initial phase of the programme is to move insurance policy data from existing DELA systems to the new INSIS core policy administration system.

“It is great to have been involved early in conversations, enabling us to get a solid understanding of both the current state and what is required, and to carry out valuable consultancy,” says Susan van Zyl, consultant at JMR Software. 

Early engagement in complex data migrations means that we can agree on the right strategy to significantly mitigate any project risks. Our team has worked side by side with Charles Taylor InsureTech and DELA to look at various options and select the best possible approach.” 

Charles Taylor InsureTech has established a 10-year partnership with DELA to drive an ongoing digital transformation programme. The implementation and migration to the highly rated INSIS core policy administration system from Fadata is the foundation for a comprehensive digital transformation programme for DELA that will ultimately enable DELA to accelerate new product launches, keep ahead of the competition and exceed customer expectations. 

Dave Smith, Practice Director: Life, Health and Pensions at Charles Taylor InsureTech, says: “The world is changing, and insurance companies need to adapt to greater market challenges, but to also open their eyes to new opportunities. Charles Taylor InsureTech provides a combination of industry sector expertise, technical solutions and implementation experiences to help insurers carry out digital transformation programmes that allow them to thrive. 

Data is a precious asset and it is great to be working with JMR Software, which has an excellent track record of successful data migration delivery using its Data Migration as a Service approach, BITSHIFT.”
