Beach & Associates (B&A) an International Broker Headquartered in Toronto with branch offices in the U.S, London and Sydney has announced that following a careful review of DMS and Business Processing products available in the market it has chosen Kcenter from KnowledgeCenter as its product of choice.
Kcenter will be replacing the company's existing document management solution within the organization and it is intended that Kcenter will be rolled out to support all offices within the group.
A decision to find a replacement solution was initiated by the Board of B&A towards the end of 2008. During the first six months of 2009 B&A conducted a lengthy and comprehensive review of the products available in the marketplace and following a detailed review of product functionality aligned to determining the suppliers corporate understanding of the needs of an Insurance provider it finally selected Kcenter.
Announcing this decision, Beach & Associates Vice President of Internal Operations Leslie Mactavish said:
“Having seen the benefits that an Outlook based Document Management system could provide to our company it was of paramount importance to us that the product we selected to replace our current solution was able to enhance that experience. It was equally important that we select a supplier who understood the needs of a Reinsurance Intermediary. In KnowledgeCenter and their product Kcenter we have found the ideal fit for both requirements. KnowledgeCenter has a proven track record in the industry with a strong and impressive Client base, Kcenter provides everything we had with our previous provider but moves us to another level with its Workflow and Compound Document modules.”
KnowledgeCenter Managing Director, Kevin Osborn, was delighted by B&A’s endorsement and said:
“The selection by Beach & Associates of Kcenter against strong US based opposition is a major win for us. This is our first client in Canada and with their growing branch network in the US we will be able to continue to enhance our entry into the North American market. We very much look forward to working with them to provide the solutions and infrastructure that they need as they continue to grow their business”.
