SSP carried out a detailed market evaluation of suppliers of document composition software.

Aia Software and the ITP Document Platform matched our requirements from a technical architecture perspective right through to the cultural fit between both companies. We can now offer our insurance customers access to a more robust, scalable and flexible document composition solution that is already proven in the insurance industry.”

The efficient creation of business documents and subsequent distribution via multiple channels is a critical process for insurers. Document composition processes can be initiated as a business function directly from SSP’s insurance solutions, providing customers with direct access to advanced document creation, management and production functionality.

Mike Davies, Sales Director UK at Aia Software said, “I am delighted that the ITP Platform continues to gain recognition in the insurance market from end-user clients and major software vendors. The partnership with SSP will enable Aia to extend the global reach of our ITP Platform. Aia and SSP share a mutual focus on the insurance market and a belief in the business owned, business managed philosophy that empowers business users to manage, control and maintain critical insurance documents without requiring intervention from the IT department.”

There is a great deal of potential and mutual opportunity as a result of this partnership, as SSP provides solutions to over 120 insurance companies across the globe. Speaking at the signing of the contract, Richard Forrest, Commercial Director concluded, “Aia brings a wealth of knowledge of how document composition should be implemented in the insurance market. By integrating the ITP Platform into our proven insurance products we can add value to our offering, whilst enhancing the flexibility, business agility and operational efficiency for our insurance customers. Additionally it will enable insurers to shorten the time to market for new products which is a major competitive advantage in the insurance industry.”
