Britam’s innovative Enterprise Collaboration

By Elizabeth Akinyi | March 1, 2019

Our impact

Smart solutions and security

Britam is a leading, diversified financial services group, with operations in over seven countries in Africa. It is crucial for such a diverse company to keep up with the latest innovations.

Migrating from outdated on premise solutions, that limit employees to working from their desk, to G Suite on the Cloud was an innovation that would save a lot of costs and reduce security breaches in the long run.

The challenge

Together: anywhere, anytime

Life insurance, pension funds and asset management: Britam has it all. The one thing they didn’t have was an efficient collaboration solution. Employees struggled to collaborate across countries, there was no backup or archive, and many other problems.

Their employees couldn’t do their job efficiently. That is no way to work. If only there was a system where collaboration could be done through the Cloud: G Suite!

“Ease of use and intuitive nature of G Suite increases customer and employee satisfaction with a more connected workforce.” Michael Mwangi, Group Chief Information Officer at Britam.

The process

A plan to get started

Incentro mapped out the improvements Britam needed using Enterprise Collaboration. Implementation was done using Incentro’s Change Management. By analysing the company and training the employees in working with and adopting the new solution.

The solution

(Financial) security to work collectively

G Suite embodied the solution that Britam was looking for: visibility and ease of reporting, integration with third party tools, monitoring through Google Analytics, next level security and room to scale up.

Productivity increased Employees across Africa can access integrated information from any location

More mobility Deskless workers can report in real time from the field

Centralised IT support Available in all seven operating countries

Saving cost They can save costs through deprecating third party backup and security solutions.

The result

More time for improvement

Since the transition to G Suite and the Cloud in 2013, Britam’s 3,800 users now enjoy multiple entreprise tools that work as a foundation of innovation, driving collaboration and improving the productivity of their teams. They are now able to focus on customer satisfaction, while giving the IT team full visibility of security insights and reports on adoption and usage. Britam can truly rely on G Suite and has even achieved recognition as an innovative company.
