ADD develops ERP applications for an insurance agency with Magic Software’s uniPaaS
“The best thing about the Magic Software products is that, along with the short time-to-market due to the speed of development, when migrating to new versions you also automatically get new functionality."
Geert Celie, ICT Manager, ADD
The Belgian company ADD is an independent risk manager that forms part of the KBC group. With more than sixty years of experience, ADD belongs to the top five most important insurance brokers in Belgium. Close connections with national and international insurance companies enable ADD to develop general and specialized tailor‐made insurance solutions for every enterprise. They have a total of 110 specialized employees.
ADD continually works on optimizing its organization. In keeping with its mission, the company has developed a strict quality policy based on the adopted objectives for the commercial operation within ADD, the preparation of quotations, and for policy and indemnity management. That's why they were looking for a solution to give them:
- The maximum benefit of an Internet user interface
- Complete connectivity with external equipment.
- Minimal project risks and associated costs.
“Furthermore, through the automation of our packages, we wanted to be able to offer more than the suppliers of standard packages,” says Geert Celie, ICT Manager at ADD.
The operational processes take place on one ERP platform, called 3Force, for which the applications are developed with uniPaaS. The platform has three pillars that are managed and developed in‐house. “From our history with Magic Software we found the solution in uniPaaS: the ultimate tool for the development and implementation of rich business applications. Due to the flexibility and uniform manner of developing in uniPaaS, the development process is
considerably shortened and simplified. We have developed three products from the various technological possibilities provided by uniPaaS such as client/server, browser based and RIA applications: 3Force, Simbadd and ORCA. Each customer can be supported with a personal management triangle and the policy and indemnity management is decentralized. This ensures that our customers receive the highest quality from our products and services.”
“Since the structure of the products that we develop in uniPaaS is modular, we have an advanced connection between the data. Another advantage is the speed. uniPaaS is very fast due to the logical structure in the product. This removes complexity for the developer, enabling us to deliver our products in a very short time. Working with uniPaaS is an enormous improvement. Because you work with XML source code you automatically get new functions. That's the best thing about uniPaaS. And it fits excellently with our services.”
