Dresden, ON (Jan. 5, 2017) – On December 12th, 2016, North Kent Mutual Insurance Company implemented a cloud-based solution for their complete business operations. North Kent has successfully moved their entire technology footprint over to a private cloud solution with the assistance of their technology partners in this project, MCCG and iVedha. Working together, MCCG and iVedha relocated North Kent’s entire IT environment onto iVedha’s cloud infrastructure platform, including their Insurance Business Solution (IBS®). This has resulted in a wealth of benefits, including:
- Fully managed and monitored environment:
- IT infrastructure and enterprise software,
- Email services,
- Systems backup,
- Office equipment and workstations procurement and support;
- Highly secure with Canadian data residency;
- With technology concerns moved to a skilled professional organization, the mutuals are freed up to focus on their core business of insurance;
- Overall improved Enterprise Risk Management on Infrastructure Technology.
“The iVedha team’s service and attention to detail has guaranteed a smooth transition to their private cloud solution. Their strong relationship with our longstanding and trusted service provider, MCCG, was an important factor in making our decision to choose iVedha. Their private hosted solution provides our company with the environment and services we need in order to simplify our operations while improving our overall Business Continuity Plans and Enterprise Risk Management. This allows us to focus at our main priorities of servicing our policyholders and agents”, stated Henry Miller, President & CEO of North Kent Mutual Insurance Company. “Specifically, it has resulted in improvements to our data backup, reduced cyber risk, improved our disaster recovery capabilities, and has removed the need for my own team to be involved in these key areas, while reducing the level of enterprise risk associated to them.”
“MCCG is pleased to see North Kent, another member of our community, successfully transition to the cloud with our partner iVedha. The synergy between our teams ensured that this project was completed within budget for the North Kent team. We believe the speed to market and comprehensive offering will continue to make this a very attractive offering for our whole community as it effectively removes infrastructure technology risk from the Board’s Enterprise Risk Management discussions. This is the fourth win for iVedha and reconfirms our belief that they are providing a solution that will quickly become adopted by our community as they transition through their infrastructure replacement cycles.”, said Jon Perry, Vice – President Client Relations at Mutual Concept Computer Group Inc.
Kumar Ratnam, President & CEO of iVedha, commented: “iVedha is proud to have been selected as MCCG’s technology partner in the creation and delivery of a fully managed cloud hosting solution specifically tailored to meet the needs of mutual insurance companies across Canada. We are especially proud to have successfully deployed this solution for North Kent Mutual Insurance Company, allowing them to accrue significant advantages inherent in the solution.
