Liechtenstein Life Blockchain project successfully launched with novaCapta and Microsoft

Liechtenstein Life, novaCapta Software & Consulting Schweiz AG and Microsoft have launched a joint Blockchain project in relation to service accounting at Liechtenstein Life. The cooperation between the companies is the logical continuation and consolidation of the existing cooperation.The aim of the project is to take the first steps in the Blockchain division in the insurance sector, to gain experience in handling the new technology at Liechtenstein Life as well as to generate awareness among employees and partners and to provide an introduction to this subject.

“We have consciously chosen the leading suppliers and service providers in this sector in the partners Microsoft and novaCapta and we are very satisfied with the project which is already at a very advanced stage and the results that have been achieved,” explains CIO Christoph Böckle. “We think that the Blockchain technology will be an essential part of business life for a long time and will bring about major changes for all industries, but especially for insurance,” adds Böckle.

“We are pleased to have found an innovative partner in Liechtenstein Life for this very interesting and trendsetting project. We are developing state-of-the-art, scalable and cost-efficient applications together based on Microsoft PowerApps and combining them with Blockchain Workbench services from Azure. By specifically using additional services such as those for the automated creation of documents, we are giving the solution valuable additional functions,” continues Heinz Süess, CEO of novaCapta.

“In conclusion, we expect this project to be the first step in a long-term cooperation and further development of Blockchain applications at Liechtenstein Life.” In addition to implementing the digital application process in Germany and Switzerland, the information website and the partner portal planned for the autumn, the introduction of Blockchain technology is another step taken by Liechtenstein Life to establish itself as a leading provider of pension solutions on the German market.
