Ensur, a project management and consultancy firm based in Belgium, has entered into a strategic partnership with Keylane, an IT firm that provides software solutions to life and non-life insurers and pension institutions.
Founded in 2014, through the merger between software firms Actuera and Quinity, Netherlands-based Keylane provides standard software products to insurance companies and pension firms. On the back of a pan-European growth strategy, launched under the helm of the firm’s new management, the company has over the past two years pushed deeper into a number of new markets, including Belgium.
“The growing interest in Belgium for Keylane’s solutions has prompted us to find a local implementation partner”, explains Ralf Timmer, Executive Board Member of Keylane. In its search, the software company reviewed the credentials of several consulting firms based in the country, with Ensur surfacing as the firm’s preferred supplier. Ensur was founded in August 2014 by five former consultants of Projective, with previous experience gained at, among others, Accenture, PwC and the banking industry. The firm focuses exclusively on the insurance sector, supporting clients with a range of management consulting and IT consulting services.
“Ensur specialises in advice and project management and they are a recognised player in the Belgian insurance market. Their in-depth knowledge of the local market and our proven solutions will enable us to offer Belgian insurers the best possible service.”
Niki Serruys, Program Manager & Senior Business Architect at Ensur, adds: “More and more Belgian insurers are looking for flexible package software to replace their legacy systems. They realise that you need to modernise if you want to be a strong competitor. With its solutions, Keylane has already helped a lot of insurers in Europe make the difference. However modernisation needs to be carefully managed. The partnership with Keylane fits in exactly with our mission to help insurers during these considerable changes.”
