Aviva takes advantage of tablet technology

Aviva Risk Management Solutions has begun the pilot of a new digitisation programme designed to streamline its risk assessment processes.

An industry first, the SOLAR PlayBook project sees the firm’s risk assessment team replace pen and paper assessment processes with Blackberry PlayBooks that have been pre-loaded with a tailored risk assessment application.

The programme was designed by Formicary Collaboration Group, a leading provider of real-time team collaboration solutions, and Float, a digital ideas company, and is intended to enhance the efficiency of risk assessment.

Using the SOLAR PlayBook App Aviva’s risk advisers can process information on-site, instead of having to return to their desk to process assessments.

The app was designed with Aviva’s specific needs in mind, including the capacity to work offline and compatability with the firm’s preferred tablet, the Blackberry Playbook.

Paul Heybourne, senior project manager with Aviva, explained that Formicary and Float had been selected due to their expertise with Playbook, and praised the end result which he stated would positively affect the bottom line of Aviva’s risk assessment business.
