TeleComputing signs IT agreement with Frende Forsikring

Frende Skadeforsikring AS and Frende Livsforsikring AS, owned by 15 Norwegian banks, have chosen TeleComputing as the IT-operation supplier and provider of related IT OnDemand solutions to their employees. The agreement means that IT will be delivered as a service to Frende’s employees from TeleComputing’s centralized, “one-to-many” IT platform which to date is crucial in the IT operation and maintenance of TeleComputing’s 800 customers and 50.000 users. The 3-year agreement has an additional 2 years option.

- We make every effort to provide high quality and competitive insurance solutions to our customers. IT is not part of our core business but we expect our IT-partner to provide flexible and predictable IT-solutions in line with our business process needs. TeleComputing has, throughout the bidding process, demonstrated considerable commitment and understanding for our needs and wishes. We are convinced that TeleComputing will be a long-term, trustworthy and competent IT-partner that will be valuable to us in our aim to meet both present and future business objectives, says Ole Tom Pettersen, IT Director in Frende. To date, Frende is made up of two 2 companies – Frende Skade and Frende Liv that offer property & casualty (P & C) insurance to the consumer- and business market. – We are very proud and pleased that Frende has chosen us as their IT-partner and we will do our utmost to provide IT-solutions in line with their needs and wishes. Our centralized, “one-to-many”, IT delivery platform represents the core of our IT services which already include 2.400 certified applications, 800 business customers and 50.000 users. By using the IT OnDemand services delivered from this IT-platform, we are confident that Frende will experience an IT situation which is flexible, scalable and future oriented. They will also be able to adjust their IT costs according to their actual needs, says Sven Tore Kaasa, CEO in TeleComputing.
