Munich – 21 December 2012. Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the leader in Business Process Management (BPM) and a leading provider of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions, today announced that Zurich Insurance Group, Switzerland has chosen its software as the platform to streamline its commercial underwriting process in Switzerland. Zurich is a leading multi-line insurance provider which serves customers in more than 170 countries.
The commercial underwriting process encompasses both the broker and agent channel, spans several products and includes new business as well as renewal business. For Sepp Ruchti, Project Leader, Business Transformation, Zurich Switzerland, the focus is on improving the experience for customers. “We aim to reduce the complexity of the work environment for our employees, which will result in us being able to better serve our customers. Automation of this kind will help us to become more efficient.”
“Zurich is developing the BPM solution in co-creation sessions thanks to how Pega is designed. This approach results in a solution not only developed together with our users but also based on their specific needs. It has led to a very strong buy in for the solution and has also meant that we have the benefit of real-time change management,” Ruchti added.
