Customers, companies and industries are used to the endless opportunities of digital. This digital transformation is not easy for life insurers and therefore does not happen overnight.

For pension providers in Europe, it is a challenge to address legacy and platform issues and at the same time transform from DB (Defined Benefit) to Defined Contribution (DC) and also be competitive in price. Life insurers typically face complex and old system environments that drive costs upwards and lead to potential mistakes and a long time to market. To succeed these insurers need a transformation that is pragmatic, accountable and based on experience and domain expertise.

Lumera delivers a unified policy administration environment that enables safe, continuous digital transformation that helps the biggest Life and Pensions companies across Europe to transform their business into a digital one, leveraging Lumera’s lifelong partnership, leading cloud technology and deep domain expertise.
