LB sought a replacement for its legacy insurance system, which was unable to fully assort what Sapiens characterizes as an ambition future vision, including improved product speed-to-market, greater operational efficiency, optimized customer experience and business development. The insurer concluded that the digital and automation capabilities necessary to support that vision could only be supported by a modern software suite.

Sapiens was a natural candidate for the search, as LB Group was already a client of the vendor, having successfully implemented Sapiens Reinsurance to manage its reinsurance programs and navigate compliance with European regulations.

“The insurance market is moving fast and LB Group must be able to quickly adapt to changing demands,” comments Anne Mette Toftegaard, CEO, LB Group. “We chose Sapiens IDIT for its ability to support a fast time to market for new products and efficient maintenance and enhancement of existing products. The suite will also enable our members to interact with LB Group through innovative digital technology and will support growth from new customer groups and lines of business, while sustaining our position as the insurance company with the lowest costs in Denmark.”
