Intranet Development for Insurance Industry: Sovereign Case Study
The Sovereign General Insurance Company (Sovereign Insurance), a mid-to-large commercial insurance provider, has been empowering Canadian businesses to succeed by developing and distributing risk solutions for years.
Sovereign Insurance operates throughout Canada as a mid-to-large commercial insurance provider with a network of people working with them. The scale of that teamwork is truly immense. They required an intranet in place to collaborate. With the outbreak of COVID-19, the crisis hastened the need for remote collaboration and staying connected. They were running multiple programs which required collaboration with access management. Their primary focus was on making collaboration easy and as secure as possible.
Collaboration is a multifaceted process requiring exquisite attention to protecting internal data and that of its partners and other external parties. Our team at Evolvous planned and implemented the intranet for Sovereign Insurance with their desired custom branding. Using SPFx we customized the footer, contact directory and webparts. Following an analysis of the Customer’s requirements, their corporate landing page was designed with a news carousel, document storage and quick links to essential information about corporate branding. It also consisted of news, announcements, recent press releases, policies, upcoming events, time zone, weather and an image gallery.
With the new intranet in place, the team at Sovereign Insurance now experiences improved collaboration and improved capabilities. The look and feel of their intranet sites match their company theme and branding. Documentation is organized, and access to information is faster and easier.
Intranet has increased their overall productivity as well as streamlined the processes. Dedicated sites have broken down the departmental silos and have made knowledge management less confusing and more organized. They recognized that SharePoint was another essential way to meet the urgent need to communicate within the teams. As a result, Sovereign Insurance team can now manage their environment more securely and effectively.
