IBM, Thai Re, reinsurance, blockchain, hybrid cloudIBM announced the launch of ‘Insurer Network’ by Thailand’s technology-driven professional non-life reinsurer, Thai Re. Insurer Network is a reinsurance smart contract production network that uses IBM blockchain technology on the IBM Cloud.

Available through ThaiRe Innovation, the Thai Re subsidiary and IT engine, Insurer Network is designed to bring transparency and speed to its clients in Thailand.

Through the launch of its Insurer Network platform on IBM Cloud, Thai Re will streamline how it handles more than 10,000 annual reinsurance contracts with its insurance partners, making it easier for those insurers to grow their businesses.

Using blockchain technology on the highly secured IBM Cloud, the platform will allow Thailand’s insurance industry to gain efficiency and speed in processing the reinsurance contracts. Expected benefits will also include reduction of forgery risk through a traceable, highly-secured single version of truth documentation, and a decrease in potential data inaccuracies from manual multi-party reconciliation reinsurance contracts.

“The COVID-19 pandemic and the need to digitally transform have urged organizations, not only in insurance industry but all, to bring efficiency to the way we work,” said Oran Vongsuraphichet, Chief Executive Officer of Thai Reinsurance Public Company Limited. “Thai Re has continuously focused on prudent underwriting professional portfolio management as well as business innovation throughout the past 40 years of our operations, and our ‘Insurer Network’ platform, now live, will today bring efficiency and transparency to all our stakeholders, while also opening the new chapter of insurance industry in Thailand.”

“The pandemic and the ongoing disruption has shown how important it is for businesses to be built for change and resilience,” said Patama Chantaruck, VP for Indochina Expansion and MD of IBM Thailand. “Thai Re’s ‘Insurer Network’ platform can improve operational scalability and flexibility, in addition to speed and transparency, to the ecosystem of insurers in Thailand. IBM is proud to support Thai Re and its growing platform network today with our blockchain technology on the highly-secured IBM Cloud environment.”

“Our goal is to make this platform beneficial to Thailand’s insurance industry while also serving the need of consumers. We plan to invite almost 100% of all insurers and brokers in Thailand to leverage this “Insurer Network”blockchain-based smart contract platform within the next two years,” said Pojaman Fuangaromya, Executive Vice President of Thai Reinsurance Public Company Limited and General Manager of ThaiRe Innovation Company Limited, “We want to be a strategic partner that helps our customers stay ahead of the game, and more quotation, underwriting claim and reconciliation capabilities will soon be added to our “Insurer Network” platform to bring the best reinsurance service innovation to our stakeholders.”
