MONTREAL, February 8, 2018 / PRNewswire / – SSQ Insurance, a leading player in the Canadian market, has chosen Planbox as its innovation management platform.
The insurer’s objective is to tap into the collective intelligence of the various players in its ecosystem, to engage them in the quest for innovation and continuous improvement of its products and platforms as well as of the customer experience.
The first step in this process was the launch of an innovation challenge in november 2017 with 2,000 SSQ employees. This challenge is the first of many similar initiatives that will be implemented in the coming months, both internally and externally. After achieving this first challenge, SSQ Insurance intends to extend its innovation process by gradually involving customers, partners and suppliers.
The insurer’s decision to choose Planbox was based on the platform’s out-of-the-box features that met most of SSQ Insurance’s needs at a very competitive price. In addition, the simplicity of Planbox’s contract structure – allowing for possible changes without necessarily incurring additional costs – gave the insurer peace of mind throughout the process. Finally, Planbox’s geographic proximity and the fact that it offers its solution and services in English and French also influenced the decision.
The combination of the company’s innovation program and the Planbox innovation management tool will allow SSQ Insurance to continue a regular and positive dialogue with members of its community, which will contribute to the ongoing efforts of the insurer to stand out. “We are confident that with Planbox’s tool and expertise, we will be able to bring together a significant number of employees, partners and clients around SSQ Insurance’s innovation table,” said Louis Régimbal, Vice-President Strategy and Innovation at SSQ Insurance. “Planbox’s platform integrates well with many other technologies and tools that we use.”
