Press Release

Montreal, April 23, 2019 - Equisoft, a global provider of digital business solutions for the insurance and wealth industries, proudly announced today the successful implementation of the Oracle Insurance Policy Administration (OIPA) system for Family Guardian Insurance Company, a leading insurer in The Bahamas. The firm is also spearheading a number of other core and frontend system integrations to help the Caribbean insurer become more competitive in the Bahamian market.

An OIPA system to start the New Year

Equisoft integration teams ensured that Family Guardian went live with its fully integrated OIPA platform earlier this year. In addition to replacing the legacy platform, the project encompassed data migration by Universal Conversion Technologies, an Equisoft subsidiary. "We are very excited with these new technological developments and how they will create efficiencies and enhanced service delivery for our customers," says Family Guardian President, Glen O. A. Ritchie, CPA.

More implementations planned

Equisoft has also been mandated by Family Guardian to modernize a number of front-end tools over the next few years. "Working as a strategic partner for Family Guardian allows us to develop effective solutions that better address future business and digital challenges," says Ruben Veerasamy, Vice President, Consulting & Account Management at Equisoft. "Adding Family Guardian to our already prestigious list of customers makes us extremely proud, and we are committed to continue to build a strong presence in the Caribbean."
