It is time for the evolution of insurance. Thinking of how we can fit insurtech innovations into the insurance industry is no longer an effective competitive strategy. The insurance model has to fundamentally evolve, with every aspect embracing a new strategy for growth.
Join us on the 8th of September at 15h00 when we unpack the possibilities with world leading experts who are actually doing it.
I promise you an inspiring look into the incredible opportunities that lie ahead for the visionaries who want to evolve the industry and their businesses for the future.
Meet the Panel
Alan Burger – Chief Instigator, Infoslips
Alan is a recovering serial entrepreneur. InfoSlips has satisfied his passion. The simple idea that the modern document is broken, set him on the path to change how we communicate—one document at a time.
Coming from a software development background, Alan started his career before Intel and Microsoft were known. Growing up with the birth of the personal computer and learning early through his career, if you build software, it will not sell itself, driving him into business development and management.
Over the last 35 years, Alan has started, grown, matured, and sold companies in the Human Resources, Document Management, Workflow, and Web tech industries. Alan exited each company on his path to InfoSlips as soon as they were established, and technology was mainstream. His career saw him taking on various roles, including Chief Technology Officer, Business Development Executive, Programme Manager, and Chief Executive Officer.
InfoSlips, although now well established with thousands of customers worldwide, continues to challenge Alan as it innovates and takes advantage of new technologies. His current focus is to leverage the successes in the USA and nurture the company and InfoSlips offering.
Steve Symes, CEO Genasys Technologies.
Steve has been involved in system software development and management since the 1980s. After completing a BSc degree in computer science at the University of Natal and UNISA, he has been actively involved in the design, development and implementation of software solutions for the insurance industry.
This experience has outlined the need for structured development processes, and the importance of data analysis, especially in the insurance sector.
The opportunity to develop a customer-centric insurance management platform for a European insurer in 1997 was the start of Genasys Technologies, and what was to become SKi® (Software Key to Insurance).
