HCL Congratulates Aegon on Celent Model Insurer Award

Jointly developed customer correspondence management framework wins in operational excellence category

NEW YORK--()--HCL Technologies, a leading global IT services company, announced today that its client, Aegon, a multinational life insurance, pensions and asset management company, has won a Celent Model Insurer award for operational excellence in non-core systems/IT management.

Celent is a premier independent research and consulting firm focused on the application of information technology in the global financial services industry. The Model Insurer Awards recognize a financial institution’s effective use of technology in specific areas.

HCL and Aegon jointly designed and created an enterprise-wide customer correspondence management framework using the Thunderhead application, as part of an effort to transform Aegon’s legacy systems to a modern application portfolio. This framework delivers consistent customer communication across multiple channels (Web, mobile, email and print). This project exemplifies HCL’s vision on the future digital operating model, which helps organizations to move away from implementing disparate and piecemeal digital touch point projects, and toward a continuous system of optimization.

It’s the second time in three years that HCL’s work with Aegon has been recognized with a Celent Model Insurer award.

“HCL is proud to have partnered with Aegon to develop a solution designed to build a consistent customer experience and help improve efficiency, transform its application portfolio, increase sales and reduce IT expenditures,” said Rahul Singh, president, business services and corporate vice president, HCL Technologies. “This award speaks to the relationship-focused culture we’ve developed with Aegon that continues to drive business value.”

"The complete document and content management transformation completed by Aegon Netherlands is an excellent example of how insurers can reap very broad and significant business benefits and competitive advantage from modernizing non-core systems," said Karen Monks, an analyst at Celent and author of the report. "Ensuring consistent communications across all channels is important in the digital age. Aegon’s project improves their processes today and prepares them for the future; both are very important considerations Celent looks at when evaluating Model Insurers."

Celent Model Insurer award winners were recognized at Celent's 2015 Innovation and Insight Day, on March 23, at Carnegie Hall in New York, NY.
