Generali Switzerland has gained a new IT provider with Avectris

Aug 15, 2017.
  • The Generali Group Switzerland is also modernising its IT infrastructure as part of its strategic realignment process.
  • The experienced IT service provider Avectris is now taking over the running of the Workplace Services & Collaboration, the Data Centre Services and the Application Operations. The migration should be completed by the end of 2018.
  • By choosing an innovative IT provider, Generali Switzerland aims to offer its employees a workplace environment that responds optimally to future requirements and guarantees the greatest possible security and stability at all times.
  • The outsourcing of these services is still subject to the approval of the FINMA. Their consent to the planned cooperation between Generali Switzerland and Avectris is expected to be announced in the next few weeks.

"This step will help us modernise our infrastructure and thereby further optimise our business model," says Martin Frick, Chief Operations Officer of the Generali Group Switzerland. "We will be more flexible in our work and be able to offer our customers an even better service."


With Avectris, Generali has chosen a partner that is familiar with handling sensitive data. Furthermore, the data management is carried out exclusively in Swiss data centres. "By using the latest private cloud technologies and high automation, we can achieve the highest quality and safety while at the same time realising relevant cost advantages", says Thomas Wettstein, CEO of Avectris.


FINMA is expected to announce its approval of the proposed cooperation between Generali Switzerland and Avectris in the next few weeks.
