EquiSoft Expands with Opening of India Office

Staff Writer | September 28, 2016

EquiSoft announces the addition of a new team of technology experts located in Hyderabad, India. This office opening will allow EquiSoft to considerably broaden the range of resource mix options for its client base in the Asia‑Pacific region and around the world.

EquiSoft is a leader in the design and development of digital business solutions for the wealth and insurance industries. The company is also an integrator for the Oracle Insurance Policy Administration (OIPA) solution, owing to its expertise in processes within new business, underwriting, compensation management, policy servicing, and claims management.

“We are increasingly being presented with business opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region, says Simon Richardson, regional director for EMEA and APAC. “It can be very challenging to effectively support a delivery in that part of the globe, when most of your resources are in North America or even South Africa. Since we had already planned to expand our business development activities in that region, we decided to establish a local capability that can also be leveraged to serve our global clients more effectively.”

All EquiSoft resources, in every location, have industry-specific expertise. They have access to a wealth of knowledge gained by the company over the past 20 years, by working successfully with major global insurance companies and other financial institutions.

“Over the years, we’ve completed numerous integration projects and system upgrades, and as certified OIPA integrators, we could see the importance of hiring resources that are highly specialized,” says EquiSoft founder and CEO Luis Romero. “It’s not just a question of lower cost and lower risk on the initial project, but it’s really important in the long run to avoid refactoring costs that could have a significant impact.”

With its team of experts now based on four continents, EquiSoft has the capacity to provide its clients with onshore, nearshore and offshore resources in the insurance and wealth industries. This ensures that clients can benefit from lower manpower costs, lower implementation risk, multi-cultural and multi-disciplined resources, as well as lower maintenance costs in the long term.
