Further Group Selects Novidea’s Insurance Platform to Deliver on Its Global Growth Strategy
InsurTech Novidea, announces that it has partnered with the Further Group (Further), a leading global specialist in the design and development of health insurance products and service solutions, to implement its born-in-the-cloud, end-to-end, data-driven insurance management platform to support its global growth.
Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Madrid, Further has successfully established itself as a leading, high growth company in its specialty healthcare area, with business in over 30 countries and partnerships with more than 300 insurers and employer groups.
Historically, the business operated using a number of IT systems with limited integration across the platforms. To pave the way for its ambitious growth strategy, Further turned to Novidea to integrate its business processes on one data-driven platform, to drive greater operational efficiency, improve communication, and provide a single source of truth for stakeholders.
Tatiana Macías, Chief of Staff, Further, said: “To grow to the next level, it is imperative we have the right technology and systems in place that can manage the complexities of our business. We chose Novidea because of their exceptional expertise in delivering global solutions within the insurance industry, as well as for their platform’s outstanding end-to-end capabilities, built on Salesforce.”
Ben Potts, MD, UK, Novidea, said: “We see many insurance organisations encumbered by disparate legacy systems that limit their potential. Today, forward-looking businesses like Further are increasingly utilising cloud-based platforms that enable them to turn data into insights at the point of need, enabling better-informed decisions, greater operational efficiencies, and enhanced client service.
“Novidea’s platform will contribute to the futureproofing of their business and enable them to accelerate their international growth strategy, with what they need to stay competitive, customer-focused, and agile.”
With more than 100 customers in 22 countries, Novidea, the creator and provider of the only born-on-the-cloud, data-driven insurance platform, built on Salesforce, is truly global. Its platform enables brokers, agents, and MGA Coverholders to manage the customer insurance journey, end-to-end, and drive growth across the entire insurance distribution lifecycle.
