Kenya-based IT firm Turnkey Africa and Heritage Insurance, a subsidiary of continental insurer Liberty Group, with their Head Office in Johannesburg South Africa, have signed a deal to install and roll out the latest version of the TurnQuest General Insurance System (GIS).
The new system will enable Heritage to harness all its business resources to achieve the firm’s growth objectives as it seeks to strengthen its general insurance business in Kenya and targeted emerging growth markets in East Africa and beyond.
Heritage Insurance Managing Director John Milne said that information technology will play a central role in strengthening the firm’s drive to expand its variety of general insurance solutions.
Milne added that the TurnQuest GIS was ideal for the firm’s expanding product portfolio and suited integration with other enterprise systems.
“We are looking to leverage technology to diversify product delivery channels, increase productivity and efficiency and ultimately improve client acquisition and retention,” he noted.
The acquisition of the TurnQuest GIS solution underpins the intent of the parent company to roll out a common platform across its regional, short term insurance footprint.
Chief Executive Officer of Turnkey Africa, Kizito Makatiani, explained that the contract reflects the firm’s excellent reputation as a market leader in implementing an innovative and transformative solution for the insurance industry combined with the depth and breadth of our technical capabilities.
