Developing a digital commercial insurance provider

andsafe AG

‘For the development of our digital commercial insurance provider, we were looking for an all-rounder with experience in the industry and a professional and technological claim to leadership. adesso is broadly positioned in all areas of technology relevant to us and was able to offer us the IT services we needed from a single source. adesso’s willingness to take overall responsibility for the technical and creative implementation was an important criterion for us.’

Former IT Director of Provinzial NordWest


The goal of the newly founded andsafe AG was for companies and businesses to be able to purchase and conclude a business liability insurance contract online. In future, it should be possible to add additional products to the portfolio for commercial customers quickly and with little effort. Within the framework of an agile project environment, the task was to develop an online platform. In addition, associated BiPRO standards had to be implemented, savings bank organisations as well as exclusive sales organisations had to be connected and an intermediary portal had to be integrated.

At the same time, it is essential to rethink established internal processes, hierarchies or mindsets that say, ‘this is how we have always done it’. These lead to protracted development processes and unnecessarily long times to market. For agile approaches to be successful in a corporate environment, it is critical that their implementation is firmly anchored and lived out.

We use agile coaches, among other things, to help put this into practice. Our colleague Jenny Gursch provides insights into her role in the project.


Provinzial commissioned adesso to develop a digital commercial insurance provider based on the ‘one-stop shop’ principle. From the initial contact to customer consultation and support, to the conclusion of the contract, all business transactions can be carried out on the new platform.
