SSP expands their AWS Cloud capabilities into Cape Town, South Africa
SSP has invested over £40 million in its new insurance platform that provides a single suite of modules and components, which are combined to form differing solutions for Insurers, UMAs and Brokers. SSP’s Insurance Platform is architected for the AWS Cloud, and they are delighted to announce that the SSP software is now available in the AWS Africa (Cape Town) Region.
SSP is the first insurance technology vendor to make use of the new AWS Africa (Cape Town) Region, which they will utilise for all their African deployment. It has come from intensive work with the architects at AWS, following on from the launch in Europe (via AWS Dublin) in 2019.
The complete solution will enable Insurers and UMAs to have an omni-channel, full-cycle engagement with their customers and brokers, whilst benefiting from enhanced risk selection and pricing using third party data enrichment. Insurance software on-demand has arrived in Africa and SSP is looking forward to announcing its first adopters in the territory soon.
Leslie Muthen, African Territory Head at SSP, said, “AWS is expanding its global footprint with the opening of the new region which meets the highest levels of security, availability, compliance, and data protection. We’re looking forward to continuing our work with the AWS to our African customers up and running in the new region to better serve the short-term insurance market. “The strategic partnership and approach to our platform architecture has enabled us to reuse the investment in DevOps and automated deployment through the SSP control plane, from other AWS regions and implement in less than 24 hours.
