Socotra, Mendix, and First Technology announce market-leading, low-code joint solution

August 17, 2021

First Technology announced today that it has become an official Mendix Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Partner for its flexible end-to-end solution, Humble Bee. The suite of solutions can be tailored to the specific situation of the insurer and leverages Socotra’s powerful data model to streamline processes from product configuration to claims management. What really makes the solution stand out is the easy API-driven integration and powerful dynamic case management capability for collaboration.

Using advanced analytics to improve operational decisions is top of mind in any board room. The impact of Covid-19 and the accelerated need to digitize boost this development. The new group is ideally prepared to help leading clients with identifying and implementing real changes through the combination of business consulting, technology and data.

The partnership signifies an important impact to the insurance industry, as the added capabilities from Mendix and Socotra allow insurers to create a better digital experience for customers and increase collaboration—not only within the insurer but also between experts, brokers, and others.

Marc Boumans, Partner at First Consulting and First Technology, said, “When engaging with insurers and brokers we noticed many are challenged with taking steps digitalizing their business model. Together with Mendix and Socotra we can now provide them with a suite that allows them to kickstart their initiatives.
