Progressive Direct Insurance company has started operating SSP Pure Insurance’s insurance management solution, replacing Progressive’s legacy administration systems after 11-months of  implementation.

Paul Miller, SSP general manager Asia Pacific, said the technology provides Progressive – an Internet only, low cost insurer for Australian motorists - with a modernised platform to meet the needs associated with constant industry changes and the latest insurance products, while automating processes and tasks to help reduce operating expenses.

“SSP Pure Insurance’s modern platform is now making it faster and easier for Progressive to add new functionalities, respond to change and modify its processes that will help grow the business further.

“SSP was appointed in September 2014 to replace Progressive’s legacy system and we are pleased that we’ve been able to implement a customised solution for the business, providing a modernised platform to underpin an ambitious IT roadmap.”

Simon Lindsay, Country Manager for Progressive Australia, said that as a 100% online business, it was important for Progressive to replace its ageing infrastructure and technology and fully leverage its digital capability and to be competitive in a growing market.

“Upgrading our platform was a critical initiative as, following a period of significant growth, we could see that our existing technology was becoming inadequate.

“As a fully scalable, web-enabled solution that can manage the entire business lifecycle from a single platform, SSP Pure Insurance aligns well with Progressive’s 100% online business model.”

Data encryption methods previously used only by military and intelligence services have become common practice in all data transfer networks across all platforms, in all industries where information is sensitive and vital (financial and government institutions, critical infrastructure, data centres, and service providers).
