I blogged last week about how the UK insurance sector is leading the way in terms of outsourcing. Even bigger than the banking sector apparently.
In line with this is news that Accenture has won a seven year deal to provide infrastructure and application outsourcing services to Aviva's buildings claims division in the UK, known as Asprea.
Asprea wants to focus on core competencies.
Neil Gribbin, managing director at Asprea saays, "By outsourcing our infrastructure and claims applications to Accenture, we can stay focused on continual enhancement of our core competency in claims and delivering further improvements in quality of service to our clients. Accenture's deep operational experience in IT outsourcing, combined with its insurance expertise, makes it an ideal business partner for Asprea."
