Kemper Life Company in Production with LIDP Administration System

Staff Writer | August 24, 2017

LIDP Consulting Services announces the Kemper Home Services Companies, a group of companies which comprises one of the top 100 life insurance companies in the United States and is part of Kemper Corporation, is now in production with LIDP’s The Administrator solution. 

The project included the conversion of nearly five million contracts from the company’s legacy system to the LIDP platform in a single conversion cycle.  The product mix included traditional life, interest-sensitive life, and other products.  With the LIDP solution now in production, the Kemper Home Service Companies are now better able to take advantage of the modern technology, real-time processing, relational databases, flexibility, and depth and breadth of functionality provided with the LIDP system running on IBM’s AIX.

According to Mike Plazony, president of the Kemper Home Service Companies, “This project with LIDP was key to our goal of transforming and modernizing our operation to best serve our customers and create an environment of continuous improvement.  Effectively using modern technologies to ensure operational efficiency and introduce new products to market quickly is a significant part of our long term strategic goals.”

 “Working closely with the LIDP team on the initial proof of concept combined with developing and executing a well-planned implementation enabled this successful effort,” says Greg Olds, senior vice president of IT for Kemper. “Conversions are never easy, especially for life insurance contracts, so this successful conversion required a tremendous effort by our joint team and resulted in a big win for us.”

“We congratulate the Kemper Home Service Companies on the successful conversion.  We appreciate the confidence in LIDP’s solution, technology, and especially the knowledge and skill of our team,” says LIDP’s CEO Bill Schnittker.  “This conversion effort was not for the faint of heart, but our respective teams were able to work as one with a common goal to meet and exceed the Kemper Home Service Companies’ goals. I thank everyone for their dedication and hard work.”
