EVRY and Storebrand have extended the partnership and entered into a new long-term agreement that will give Storebrand higher flexibility to develop new services. The agreement includes outsourcing of IT services, including cloud services, and represents a contracted value of more than NOK 400 million over five years.
In order to assist Storebrand in releasing resources and funds to drive innovation and develop its digital business, EVRY will continue to improve automation and the efficiency of Storebrand’s IT operating services. As the service provider responsible for areas such as data centres, infrastructure, networks, clients, security, printing and applications operations, EVRY is committed to deliver according to expectations that all Storebrand’s customers and employees have to their digital services and through this ensuring good deliveries to the customers.
The insurance industry is exposed to global disruption as a result of new companies implementing new standards for the scope of service and the quality of the user experience. As a leading company in the Norwegian insurance market, Storebrand is targeting to develop its service offering in line with this. At the same time, close and proactive customer interaction, compliant data storage, and high-quality security solutions are of high importance.
“We need an IT platform that is secure, robust and flexible which makes innovation and introduction of new services easier. In order to achieve this, we need a partner that facilitates digital business development and the best possible customer journey. EVRY has a digital IT platform that will deliver that and will be essential to our internal development and for the future”, explains Heidi Skaaret, Executive Vice President at Storebrand.
In 2017 Storebrand migrated to EVRY’s state-of-the-art datacenter in Fet, where they have access to last generation technologies and platforms from leading global cloud providers. The new contract with EVRY means that Storebrand can modernise its IT platform further and migrate its application services to the cloud. This will make it easier and more efficient for Storebrand to develop its digital business.
EVRY and Storebrand have already been partners for many years, and the agreement represents an extension to this.
“Through its partnership with EVRY, Storebrand has developed a solid and secure IT platform. We are proud to have been chosen once again by a company that is committed to innovation and new development and are focusing on customer centricity. We are now looking forward to continuing delivering a platform for Storebrand to develop new, high-quality insurance services for its customers”, comments Kolbjørn Haarr, EVP for EVRY Norway.
