Northdoor is nominated for a ‘European IT Excellence Award’

11 February 2013

Northdoor announces that it has been nominated for the 2013 European IT & Software Excellence Award in the ‘Vertical Solution of the Year’ category, for its work with Asta Management Services. Northdoor have been nominated for this IT Europa Award after implementing an NdexInsure Solvency II solution combining the latest Microsoft technology, Northdoor’s Insurance specialist product and industry leading consultancy services.

Asta were looking for a solution to provide a central portal for key Risk Model information for each Syndicate that they manage. The solution incorporated workflow, reporting, metadata, versioning and full auditing. By using the NdexInsure Solvency II solution, Asta are now able to manage, automate and streamline key insurance information for operational as well as regulatory processes, radically reducing paper costs and unreliable manual processes.

Stephen Pennington (IT Director, Asta Managing Agency) said “We were very impressed with Northdoor’s significant experience of the Insurance Market which allowed them to readily understand our needs quickly. They have a deep industry understanding, coupled with an outstanding Microsoft SharePoint practice which specialises in Business Critical SharePoint. Northdoor proactively guided us through the process and implementation to produce a class leading solution which is easy to use and support going forward”.

Tony Russell of Northdoor said "We have engaged with Asta Management Services many times over the years and it was great to help with a project which was so central to their plans and compliance requirements. We have worked hard to establish ourselves as the most trusted Gold accredited Microsoft SharePoint specialist in the London Market and it is very rewarding to see our efforts awarded with this nomination”.
