ING is one of the first Pega clients in the Netherlands. ING already started building applications in Pega from 2008. When SmartRules and ING joined forces in 2014, ING needed specialists to improve and update their current 3 applications.
First off, ING wanted their applications to be future proof. For this, recommendations from Pega were implemented and adjustments were made to make sure Pega could cope with ING’s target architecture, changing from Websphere to Tomcat, from IBM service to Tibco etc.
Besides improving their current applications, ING wanted to upgrade from Pega 6 to Pega 7. As SmartRules already had experience in successfully upgrading from Pega 6 to Pega 7 at other customers (like Rabobank), ING selected SmartRules to support ING in the upgrade
Nationale-Nederlanden’s goal is to play a leading role in modernization the insurance sector. With a history spanning 165 years and just over five million customers, the country’s well known insurance company has a new, customer-centric approach.
NN is the biggest insurance company in the Netherlands. NN uses Pega software to process and perform all customer requests regarding (closed book) life insurances. What first started as a small business case for further automating backend processes for one of their business labels (RVS), later expanded to all of NN’s life insurance labels.
But it didn’t stop there. In the past few years, NN has replaced their old call-center software for a Pega CRM system. Like the up and running Pega BPM system it connects to, Pega CRM too started out for one of NN’s life insurance labels, but as the profitability became clear, NN decided to use the Pega CRM software to service all of their life insurance labels.
Currently, NN is merging all policies from all different labels to one backend system, further aligning their different business processes to one new uniform process with Pega PRPC. A huge project where SmartRules again delivers the Pega knowledge in combination with insurance knowledge.
Achmea is the largest insurance provider in the Netherlands. Non-life, Health and Income Protection insurance products are core competences. Besides its home country, Achmea is active in seven other European countries. Achmea has used Pega now for several years. Most often such big organisations have a wide range of backend systems, communicating via different integration methods. That’s where Pega comes in. Pega can cope with a wide variety of interface methods and languages, making it an ideal software package for Achmea.
When SmartRules experts came into the Pega project, USG already started the ambitious program of transitioning all USG operating companies USG onto a single, multi-channel, platform. At this point, the core business process: selection and matching of people and companies towards employment, was yet to be developed. Creating this process had two major challenges: The dynamic nature of the business process and the scale-diversity between operating companies in the way they work.
SmartRules experts had a big contribution in helping USG overcome these challenges. Together with the USG, we are proud to say that all operating companies (Start People, Unique, etc.) in Belgium are working on a single platform today. Thanks to SmartRules expertise and Pegasystems technology, USG is ready for the future!
