Assuralia is the umbrella organization for Belgian insurance companies. The last few years Assuralia has been looking closely into several e-invoicing solutions. This is because in recent years, the adoption of electronic invoicing, under pressure from customer demand, the advance of new technologies and the availability of new portable devices (smartphone and tablet) has grown significantly.
That is why in 2014 the Assuralia Productivity Committee established an action plan considering the digitization of documents and procedures by Belgian insurance companies.
One of the projects was realized at the end of 2016: a unique sector-wide multi-channel portal for the digital transmission and payment of premium advice notes. This portal serves as an interface for receiving premium advice notes in a standardized electronic format, which are then forwarded to the existing environments (PC Banking, BilltoBox …) or to an agreed solution (Secure Email , app …). This particular insurance portal also offers new digital solutions that take better account of the needs of the insured.
The board of directors of Assuralia agreed on the proposal of UnifiedPost, having developed a solution that meets the requirements listed in the tendering. Late 2016, the exclusive Memorandum of Understanding was signed between Assuralia and UnifiedPost.
Luc Caubergh, Sector Head UnifiedPost:
“We are very pleased to be selected as the exclusive partner for Assuralia. Due to our experience and so-called one-stop-shop approach we can deliver a full range of products and services. From document to successful payment in a click.”
“The platform offers many advantages for insurance companies, such as: preferential rates, less need for additional IT-developments (the platform provides a standardized transmission format), better accounting reconciliation, an alternative to rising postage costs, lower storage and handling costs and freedom in the choice of e-invoicing. Additionally this portal offers a new commercial dimension in the sense that “e-invoicing” can also be beneficial for the overall image of the industry.”
UnifiedPost was founded in 2000 and has grown very swiftly over the last years. UnifiedPost started as a platform for document management. Over the years, UnifiedPost has acquired several companies towards the group of companies. UnifiedPost employs over 200 people across Europe on a BPaaS platform based upon the basic components Document, Payment, Identity, all available in their own community.
The confidence in UnifiedPost is built on the belief that by focusing on smart Fintech solutions, platforms and ecosystems, broad business opportunities that really matter are created. Their technology changes the way people work and allow them to fully exploit the forces of digital technology to ultimately make the world a better place.
