V-NEO and Voonyx are proud to announce a major agreement with SSQ Financial Group, a leading Canadian insurer. The agreement consists of accompanying SSQ throughout its Guidewire software initiatives for the next five years.

The agreement comes further to a call for tenders launched by SSQ last July to find a service provider able to maintain, upgrade and develop general insurance solutions using Guidewire software.

"The V-NEO and Voonyx alliance was able to demonstrate their remarkable expertise in the insurance field, which is what made us decide to select them as the best service provider," said √Čric Savard, Vice-President, IT Business Development Solutions — Individual Products, with SSQ Financial Group.

"SSQ is the first client to put its trust in V-NEO when the company was first established and this agreement has very special meaning for us. It is essential that V-NEO provide a personalized service, to grow and develop the expertise here," said Alain Lamothe, President of V-NEO. V-NEO is part of Guidewire’s PartnerConnect program, a program designed to identify the expertise to implement Guidewire solutions.

"For a few years now, Voonyx has developed a great deal of expertise not only in the field of insurance but also in the integration of software programs, particularly in Guidewire environments. We are extremely pleased to be sharing our expertise and having SSQ benefit from our efficiency on a number of large-scale projects," said Philippe Larouche, President of Voonyx.
