Harcourt Life is an assurance company, formerly part of a large financial institution. The company focuses on acquiring portfolios of international bond businesses, and it is able to operate internationally through its sister companies.
“The transition from being part of a large group of companies with a centralised IT function to an independent company with less than 20 employees demanded a stable and secure IT environment throughout the process.
We engaged Spector to set up and manage our IT infrastructure when we planned this transition and now almost 2 years later, with the transition successfully completed and with significant growth and upgrading of our IT setup, we can reflect on a very productive partnership. The shared journey has increased mutual respect and both companies have learned from working together as a team to solve the challenges of an increasingly complex architecture.
This has been facilitated by great relations with the Spector team on the ground – whom we effectively see as colleagues. Our IT capability is a key enabler of our business development – and our relationship with Spector is a strategic building block on which that development depends.”
