Antigonish Farmers’ Mutual joins MCCG Client Community with IBS® implementation

Antigonish Farmers’ Mutual Insurance Company (AFMI) has joined Mutual Concept Computer Group Inc.’s (MCCG) Client Community by ‘kicking off’ their Insurance Business Solution implementation

Antigonish, NS (Apr. 23, 2019) – Antigonish Farmers’ Mutual Insurance Company (AFMI) has joined the MCCG Community and initiated their Insurance Business Solution implementation project. AFMI has selected MCCG and their suite of digital solutions to modernize and simplify their business operations. Included within this project is moving the entire operation to the cloud using MCCG’s partner, iVedha Inc., which will free up the Antigonish team to focus on the business of insurance, as well as provide improved security and business continuity planning.

This digital transformation project will provide the Antigonish team improvements to rating and underwriting through automation and an enterprise platform for claims and account management. This helps to ensure that the communities served by AFMI will continue to be well served by their agents and team. Joining the MCCG community provides AFMI with a continuous path for adoption of web technologies and business analytics, while allowing AFMI to own the pace of their transformation. AFMI and MCCG are committed to mutuality and the benefits it provides to their policyholders, community, and team.

“We have been on our current platform for a number of years and our management and team felt it was time for a change,” said Brian Morgan, General Manager and Corporate Secretary of Antigonish Farmers’ Mutual Insurance Company. “We wanted to introduce more automation into our internal processes, lessen the burden of manual processes on our team and let them focus on providing excellent support to our agents and policyholders.”

“It was important for us to work with a mutually minded partner, who would help us modernize our business operations and ensure we remain compliant with regulations like IFRS17,” added Morgan. “We like the digital path that MCCG is taking with their expanded web products and were pleased that they could provide us with a cloud solution for our entire operations with their partner, iVedha Inc.. Privacy and security is essential to our business as is superior customer service. We believe working with MCCG will help us to live up to our policyholder and community expectations. We’re looking forward to a smooth project over the next 12 months.”

“Antigonish Farmer’s Mutual Insurance Company is another Canadian Mutual success story confirming that customer service and pride in your community still works as a way of doing business,” said Jon Perry, Vice-President of Client Relations at MCCG. “For us at MCCG, we’re proud to work with this longstanding mutual and help them transform their business operations, which will allow them to continue to be competitive and meet their clients’ growing digital expectations. It’s exciting speaking to a team who wants change, understands the importance of privacy and security, and will dedicate the next 12 months to achieving this goal. We look forward to delivering this project on time and within budget, and welcome Antigonish to our growing community of mutual insurers.”
