“I’m excited to welcome First Consulting to our thriving partner community,” comments Randi Simmons, Head of Strategic Partnerships, Socotra.  “The team at First Consulting combines a wealth of strategic and technical expertise with a deep focus on the customer. As insurers seek to differentiate themselves in the market, First Consulting will help modernize their core systems and configure Socotra to fit their specific products and needs.”

“We’re proud to strengthen our partnership with Socotra,” comments Marc Boumans, Partner, First Consulting. “In stark contrast to outdated legacy systems that impede innovation, Socotra’s cloud-native platform is built for future growth. Insurers can flexibly configure—and update—nearly any insurance product using out-of-the-box capabilities and easily integrate with a host of next-generation insurtech solutions. We look forward to helping insurers serve their customers better on the Socotra platform.”
