Allianz Insurance

The challenge

With more than 700 staff, Allianz in Ireland is one of the country's largest general insurance companies. It has a reputation in the sector as an innovative user of ICT.

In recent years, it has also been innovative in its management structure, moving from the traditional hierarchy to a flatter 'teambased' organisation. That was one of the challenges to its HR systems, said Gerry O'Loughlin, project manager and analyst from the IT department.

He has been the technical person responsible for the company's transition to a new HR services platform. "It is a much more dynamic environment where flexibility is key," he said.
AIlianz has two payroll systems because approximately 100 of its staff are based in the North.

The general HR side of the administration was formerly served on the IT front by a combination of databases, including the payroll master employee lists, some bespoke spreadsheets and a Microsoft Access database.
 

The Solution

Allianz is now in the final stages of a project to roll out a completely integrated 21st century HR system based on applications from Strandum, the Irish software specialist in this area.

"We needed, above all, a single system of record," said O'Loughlin, "with the ability to easily make what the phone PBX people call 'adds, moves and changes'. Such a system also needs to be friendly for users who are accustomed to modern desktop applications.

"At the back end, the HR management system has all of the required functionality for bestpractice HR in a tightly regulated sector. "That has all been well bedded in since last year and we have moved on to implementing the MyProfile application. This gives every staff member access to their own information, including payslips, online by web browser.
