INSTANDA: Insurance. Technology. Decoded
London-based INSTANDA is a fully digital policy administration platform that allows clients across the General Insurance and Life and Health space to build insurance products, distribute to multiple audiences, and maintain them through the complete insurance lifecycle. With its unique and flexible user interface, insurers can design, rate, underwrite, quote, bind, issue and service policies for customers, agents, brokers and wholesalers.
Group protection and health platforms have had little focus in the insurance industry. The methods used to setup schemes, import member data, bring on new joiners and remove leavers are still clunky and manual, alongside, member engagement post sale is really hit and miss. At INSTANDA they have built a fully automated solution to cater for group schemes which automates the process from initial collection of company data to setting up members with their own member portal. INSTANDA operates exclusively through Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Their no-code product design platform is built on a powerful set of insurance speciﬁc calculations, processing and workﬂow capabilities.
INSTANDA serves more than 60 major clients in 14 countries and has a user group and community of over 5000 members. It counts HISCOX, Aviva, and Standard Bank Insurance among their clients.

- Agility and flexibility
- Low Total Cost of Ownership
Why we selected INSTANDA for DIA Amsterdam
In place of the slow, inflexible and expensive insurance product roadmap INSTANDA offers a solution that’s rapidly deployable, agile, low cost, innovative and self-configurable.
At DIA Amsterdam INSTANDA will be showing how group products can be automated in a similar way to traditional individual protection and health products. The neatest innovation on this new capability for INSTANDA is the creation of a member portal which happens instantly once the scheme is set up. Member engagement has always been poor in the industry and now INSTANDA is opening the door for employers to really show off the benefits they are putting in place for their most valued assets. With the right information a product can be set up and take it in to market and have employers setup with member benefits in place within minutes.
