uniPaaS Enables Securitas to Strengthen its Competitive Edge by Streamlining Business Processes and Enhancing Value-Added Service Offerings
“The migration process was quick and easy. uniPaaS allows us to use its advanced capabilities to provide a high standard of fast service and availability to both customers and field agents alike. This gives us added value compared to our competitors.”
Gabi Shapira, CEO, Securitas.
Securitas is an Israeli insurance company licensed by the Controller of Insurance as a Lloyd’s cover holder in a wide range of insurance fields, including heavy motor vehicles, engineering equipment, personal accident, sickness and hospitalization, and more. Securitas is known for its meticulous and professional underwriting and for its high standard of policy issuance and management.
Securitas currently runs seven different applications that were developed using Magic Software's uniPaaS application platform. These applications run the company's business and operational processes, including insurance policy issue, company infrastructure management, payments, fines, and management of relations with Lloyd’s Underwriters in London, UK. Securitas sought to upgrade its IT applications to optimize corporate knowledge‐sharing, and to automate several key processes that were currently being performed manually. An essential requirement was to ensure complete transparency in the connection between IT systems, for example, when transferring from a policy page directly to a payments page.
The company also wanted to offer more services and capabilities to agents and customers via their website.
Shaked Systems, a Magic Software business partner responsible for executing this project, successfully completed the full upgrade of the Securitas application platform to uniPaaS in only 10 days and at minimal cost. uniPaaS provided a solution that not only met all of Securitas’ requirements, but also created a range of additional capabilities above and beyond the planned scope of the project. uniPaaS created an environment for Securitas to develop and deploy business applications faster and with fewer resources.
By choosing Magic Software’s uniPaaS solution, Securitas has obtained the following important benefits:
- Advanced development capabilities: uniPaaS provides Securitas with a comprehensive, powerful solution for fast, cost‐efficient application development.
- Streamlined development life cycle: uniPaaS enables Securitas to build advanced business applications, and without a complex development program, and without the need to invest in new information systems.

- Results: Securitas today enjoys the benefits of a more agile and efficient corporate IT setup, with a greater range of capabilities to offer customers a wide variety of consistently high‐quality services.
