Seguros Los Andes C.A. is an insurance company with branches in 13 cities in states throughout Venezuela. With 56 years of experience in the insurance market, it offers a wide range of products—including personal, automobile, property, and healthcare insurance, as well as bonds.
Seguros Los Andes needed to manage its insurance offerings more efficiently. As part of its effort to develop and optimize Web portals for brokers, health clinics, and auto repair shops, the company deployed Oracle Application Express and Oracle Application Server. It also replaced IBM’s DB2 with Oracle Database, Enterprise Edition, taking advantage of Oracle's natural integration with Acselx, the company’s core insurance system, which is a specialized, centralized system, built on Oracle’s architecture and developed by Oracle Partner Consis International. By developing a portal for healthcare clinics, the company automated the clinics’ admissions processes and improved efficiency for patient admissions by 40%.
“Seguros Los Andes chose Oracle Application Express, along with Oracle Application Server and Oracle Database, Enterprise Edition, to optimize core system management. The security of Oracle’s solutions, the quality of its products, and the database management capabilities played a key role in our decision to choose Oracle,” said Hector Castiblanco, manager of technology, Seguros Los Andes C.A.
After acquiring its core insurance system from a third-party provider and putting it into production in 2006, Seguros Los Andes deployed Oracle Application Express, Oracle Application Server, and Oracle Database, Enterprise Edition to develop portals and optimize insurance and service management for customers and suppliers.
With Oracle solutions, deployed on Sun servers, running Oracle Solaris, Seguros Los Andes developed three key business portals. Thanks to Oracle, in less than one year, the company created a portal to serve brokers, health clinics, and auto repair shops.
