Platform Replacement to Meet Business Agility & Regulatory

About the Client

The client is a leading international specialty insurance group with offices in the United States, United Kingdom, Spain and Ireland, transacting business in approximately 180 countries and underwriting more than 100 classes of specialty insurance.

Business Challenge

Our client is running Italian Surety business from London market. This business was facing operational challenges with their current 3rd Party application. The existing application was not stable and was not able to support the growing needs and changes of business and was running risk of being Brexit non-compliant. Additionally, the current system had lot of regression issues due to any change or rollout of new functionalities. The current portal restricts the user to perform any activity in parallel when the user downloads the document. The portal does not have omnichannel capability. Reconciliation of payment was a manually task that lead to error and increased time to market.


  • Migrate Mendix based surety portal to Sitecore platform.
  • Provide scalable architecture
  • Multisite capabilities and multilingual support
  • Modular approach to rollout new modules and functionalities quickly.
  • Integration via Biztalk server APIs to push data to GSA application and generate documents based upon 80 different templates
  • Business rules implementation e.g. max sum insured per bond by subline of business
  • Approval workflow – (approval by Underwriter)
  • The system should send notifications via email on document generation
