Sanlam selected TCS as a strategic partner to re-write its policy administration system. TCS with its domain capability, agility and flexibility successfully replaced Sanlam’s outdated policy administrator system with a new platform to support Sanlam’s business objectives and competitor positioning in the market.

Experience Results

The TCS-Sanlam relationship began ten years ago. The latest engagement was around the renewal of its policy administration platform. TCS was evaluated together with other suppliers and was found to be the best company to deliver what Sanlam wanted.

Sanlam’s senior executives highlight that they now have a platform they can rely on and one that is going to work for them for a long period of time. They commend TCS for renewing the platform and helping Sanlam drive its business objective better, because the renewed platform is very crucial and is the engine of its business.

Experience Partnership

Sanlam found that TCS to be very cooperative, really responsive to its needs and helped Sanlam get what it wanted TCS to deliver.

They worked hours and hours of overtime to deliver and also there was just an amazing thing of that this is our project and not it’s your project and that's what really worked for us.

There was no doubt that they wanted this project to succeed as much as we wanted to.

Experience Leadership

Manyatshe highlights that TCS anticipated the issues and problems and was able to discuss those with Sanlam before they materialized. TCS also offered solutions to work together in order to meet the goals as against the problems and risks that could affect the project.

TCS has done something new in our industry in the sense that all our competitors want to do what we have done and they have not even started, and we have just finished the project. So, to me, to renew the platform, the legacy platform, it was a first in that sense.
