Intact Financial Corporation Deploys edgeConnect

edge IPK, the insurance industry’s user experience platform (UXP) designed to provide the optimal user experience to any insurance user, recently announced that edgeConnect has been selected by Intact Financial Corporation, a Canadian provider of home, auto and business insurance. According to the officials from edge IPK, edgeConnect will help Intact Financial Corporation to improve the customer experience.

edgeConnect helps insurance, lending and banking organizations deliver a wide range of front-end business solutions providing accelerated return on investment and with far more intrinsic flexibility for change than has traditionally been possible. It eliminates the costly and time-consuming effort of writing code to develop business process solutions. edgeConnect also takes care of hackers, something insurers need to think about when they expose their back end systems beyond their walls. 

“Through our new relationship with edge IPK, we will provide a user-friendly, customized and dynamic web user interface that seamlessly integrates with our existing systems,” said Sergio Zanardo, VP of Application Development of Intact Financial Corporation. “By leveraging edge IPK’s user experience platform, we will improve our ability to adapt to the changing consumer demands – all while gaining efficiencies, streamlining workflows and delivering a richer user experience.”

edgeConnect focuses on the “Presentation Layer” allowing business analysts to create browser based applications without the need for knowing script languages like Active Server Pages or Java Server Pages. In addition to this, the user is shielded from development considerations for online, offline, portal and composite applications. It also provides the capability to auto generate screens from databases, XML schema and Web service definitions (WSDL), thereby dramatically accelerating development times.

Wendy Aarons-Corman, edge IPK’s North American president, said, "We are pleased that Intact has selected edgeConnect as an ideal solution for its IT needs. edgeConnect offers Intact a way to easily and simply leverage its existing system infrastructure. This will enable Intact to provide different user views and interaction models to its various user communities quickly.”
