DediPower Managed Hosting Supports Insurance Software Provider’s International Expansion
Airas Intersoft launches new secure ASP service to world-wide financial services clients and prospects through its DediPower partnership.
Cloud and Managed Hosting expert, DediPower has been chosen by Airas Intersoft, the first company to offer web-architected options based on proven life and pensions administration software, to support the growth of its business in developing the fast-maturing overseas markets. Bringing new levels of speed, innovation and lower cost of ownership, Airas Intersoft now supports over 5 million policies globally for organisations such as Eureko Romania, KBC and the British American Insurance Co. Originally running a datacentre from its offices in Ilford, UK, the company switched to DediPower’s Enterprise Class Data Centres in order to free up resources, strengthen security and create a total ‘hosted’ application in order to grow its business.
Sean Jacob, Operations Director, Airas Intersoft comments, “Although based on a single proprietary solution, iGas, all of our applications are highly customised to reflect clients’ local culture and regulatory requirements. The more clients we have the more infrastructure we need. Our rapid growth both in terms of people and servers meant it simply wasn’t feasible to keep our datacentre in house any longer. DediPower offered us an Enterprise Class hosted platform that not only provided us with the most advanced server technology available but also the confidence to develop ‘hosted’ applications for existing and new customers.”
He adds, “The cost of outsourcing has been offset by eliminating moving costs and minimising investment required in upgrading systems, architecture and servers. With DediPower, we have also benefitted from a more advanced platform with optimised architecture for greater efficiency and performance. In addition, DediPower’s ISO 27001 security certification, secure facilities and advanced security systems provide us with the assurance we need to host ‘sensitive’ policy data on behalf of our clients.”
Chris Miller, CEO of DediPower states, “DediPower works with many innovative software providers, helping to support and promote their strategic vision. We are delighted to be able to assist Airas Intersoft in growing their business in this highly specialised market. Their solution not only offers a fast route to market for financial providers seeking to offer more targeted insurance but, by partnering with us, also a fully hosted platform for end-to-end development, rapid deployment and operation.”
