The beginnings of Lumera dates back at the turn of the millennium, as the banking and insurance industries were slowly converging. Each side then had issues with dated cost structures and legacy systems designed for serving regulated markets.
A small group of likeminded pioneers recognized this as an opportunity, and that the time was right for breaking new ground: What if we could establish a common, yet flexible standard for the insurance industry? One that empowers insurers to take on their challenges and explore new business models and do so with significantly lower overhead costs.
These ideas were turned into action. The result is Inca, a versatile and extensible policy management environment that brings agility and control to life insurance and pensions providers, including their critical business processes and services.
