Sapiens with growing presence in Germany

Sapiens International Corporation is expanding its presence in Germany and can look back on many years of successful cooperation with customers like Hiscox.

November 25, 2020 – Following the acquisition of sum.cumo, a Sapiens company, at the beginning of the year, Sapiens has succeeded in significantly strengthening its presence in Germany. The joint appearance with Hiscox at the congress of the Leipzig insurance forums "IT for Insurance" on November 24-25 underlines the importance of this partnership. In addition, clients such as MSIG, Allianz Suisse, Euler Hermes, AXA Corporate Solutions and TSC in Germany and Switzerland rely on Sapiens' solutions.

Sapiens establishing in Germany

In addition to its more than 450 international customer projects, Sapiens is supported in Germany by almost 200 German-speaking experts. Thus, Sapiens is on its way to establish itself as one of the pioneers of software solutions for the insurance industry in Germany in the next few years. With the digital know-how of sum.cumo and the innovative policy management systems in composite and life, Sapiens can offer insurers of all sizes optimal solutions for digital transformation.

Hiscox and Sapiens join forces

Markus (Klopfer), COO of Hiscox, and Ingolf (Putzbach), Regional Manager Sapiens DACH, will be appearing together at today's IT for Insurance Congress of the Leipziger Versicherungsforen and will report on the digital transfer of a specialist insurer on the basis of the case study. Hiscox has been experiencing strong growth in broker insurance for years and is supported by Sapiens in order to differentiate itself even better in the market and focus on its strengths in its core business.

"Hiscox and Sapiens have been working together successfully since 2013. Now Hiscox is also relying on Sapiens' IDIT suite in Germany and five other EU markets. In addition to improved efficiency and scalability, connectivity through open interfaces and better data analysis options were decisive decision criteria. We look forward to continuing our collaborative, productive and successful collaboration and would like to contribute significantly to the success of Hiscox in Germany," Ingolf said.
