CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO, July 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
- Leading Global Reinsurer Boosts Information Management Capabilities with Autonomy iManage
Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today announced that Sirius International is using Autonomy's end-to-end iManage solution suite for intelligent document management and effective workflow automation. The leading underwriter of short-tail property reinsurance benefits from productivity improvements thanks to Autonomy's comprehensive platform, comprising of iManage WorkSite, iManage Universal Search and iManage Workflow Manager, which intelligently manage all documents across multiple content repositories and data types, streamline key business processes and ensure regulatory compliance.
With over 65 years of experience servicing clients and brokers all over the world, Sirius International maintains a tradition of effectively handling a wide variety of reinsurance and primary coverage portfolios. The global scale of Sirius International and the data-intensive nature of its business recently prompted the company to seek out a solution for managing its electronically stored information and automate mission-critical business processes. Sirius International turned to Autonomy iManage to meet this need, due to its unique conceptual capabilities, performance, security, scalability, and ease-of-use.
Powered by IDOL (Intelligent Data Operating Layer), the patterns-based engine underlying all of Autonomy's Meaning Based Governance Solutions, the Autonomy iManage product suite provides Sirius International with advanced information management and process automation capabilities, all on a common platform capable of forming a conceptual and contextual understanding of information, regardless of data type, format or language:
- Autonomy iManage Worksite provides Sirius employees with a single environment for storing, accessing, sharing and reusing all business-critical documents, as well as tracking related updates and communications. WorkSite has enabled Sirius to maximize knowledge sharing and boost internal synergies by allowing distributed teams to easily access and collaborate on documents from any location, while also dramatically reducing the risk of spoliation and loss of data.
- Autonomy iManage Universal Search delivers an intuitive search and retrieval functionality across Sirius' digital information assets. Producing results that are conceptually as well as contextually relevant, Universal Search goes far beyond simple retrieval to provide users with automatic categorization, hyperlinking, faceted navigation and the automatic creation and maintenance of knowledge taxonomies.
- Autonomy iManage Workflow Manager enables the consistent execution and streamlining of critical business processes through a platform that allows employees to create and follow step-by-step digital workflows that intelligently mirror standard operating procedures and best practices. Workflow Manager's easy-to-use visual tools, rule-based routing, intelligent electronic forms, and digital signatures provide greater visibility into the business, helping enforce compliance requirements across the enterprise.
"Sirius International has a conservative approach to underwriting, based on security, combined with flexibility and speed of decision," commented Bjorn Helander, Senior Project Manager EDRM at Sirius International. "Autonomy's approach to information and process management mirrors this vision and therefore represented the logical choice for our information management and process automation platform. The Autonomy iManage suite has met and, in some cases, exceeded all our business requirements for advanced information retrieval, compliance-driven process management and intra-firm collaboration. As a result, we are seeing significant time-savings and productivity gains and, over time, expect to see an improved client service."
"Autonomy is the only vendor capable of handling the scale, complexity and speed required to successfully manage business information in the modern era," said Glenn Perachio, VP Autonomy Protect Solutions EMEA. "We are delighted that our unique Meaning Based Governance platform is being used by Sirius International to handle the company's entire information management lifecycle and address compliance requirements."
