Nigerian Sovereign Trust Insurance (STI) successfully launched ESKADENIA Software’s comprehensive package of General Insurance, Financial, Human Resources, Payroll, Workflow, Document Management and Management Information software systems.
The deployed General Insurance system has been built to meet the largest set of business requirements in the General Insurance field. The system has been designed to automate the General Insurance life cycles, reduce operational cost, speed up work, maintain historical data, and ensure a high level of security.
The new system provides a collaborative environment for information management across the company’s branches and departments and allows users to capture up-to-the-minute information whenever required. The system, in addition, integrates with the Financial and Human Resources modules of ESKADENIA® Business Manager to maintain the needed information and account updates. The package comes along with advanced Workflow, Document Management, and Management Information systems to complete the automation of STI’s operations.
Developed using latest Object-Oriented programming language and Oracle Database, the web-based applications allow STI employees to define insurance products of multiple classes of business, automatically calculate rates and premiums through the rating engine, and run daily insurance transactions in an efficient and simple manner. Through the systems’ location-independent interface, the company can efficiently handle greater volumes of operations and smoothly manage work processes across a wide range of offices in Nigeria.
The software package also provides users with advanced real-time reports and statistics in the form of charts, diagrams and management dash boards to analyze operational performance and support the decision making process.
At the inaugural launch of the software, the Managing Director of Sovereign Trust Insurance Plc, Mr. Wale Onaolapo, commented that “The migration from the current legacy insurance software to the ESKADENIA package is a proof of the management’s commitment to embracing cutting-edge technology in delivering world class services to their teeming customers”. He reiterated the fact that “The company had always been in the forefront of setting the pace in advancing technology in the insurance industry in Nigeria.”
In the same vein, the Head of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) of STI, Mr Lekan Oguntunde, stated that “The package is user friendly and very easy to grasp; our people are already getting used to it and so far, complaints have been minimal. We have also noticed remarkable improvement in the turn-around time and efficiency of our operations since we went live on ESKADENIA’s software package.”
On his part, Managing Director of Technology Bureau Nigeria, Farouq Omotayo, commented, “In addition to meeting all the functional specifications and technical capabilities as required by our customer Sovereign Trust Insurance Company, delivering a solution that will strategically position the customer as a market leader in the Insurance Industry was a key focus of the management.
