OneLife appoints new CEO to drive global growth ambitions

LUXEMBOURG, 24 April 2018 – As a result of differences of views on the strategy and the future direction of OneLife, Marc Stevens, CEO of OneLife, and the Company have decided to separate their ways, and Marc will pursue new opportunities. We thank Marc for his valuable contributions to our company's restructuring, re-branding and improvement of the profitability. We wish him well in his new endeavours.
The Board of OneLife has appointed Antonio Corpas to the position of Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer (subject to regulatory approval). In this capacity, Antonio joins the Board of OneLife as Director. He will report to Thierry Porté, Executive Chairman and Director of OneLife.
Antonio has held the position of Head of Tax & Legal and Group General Counsel at OneLife (and its predecessor companies) for the past ten years. During that time, he has been instrumental in building the company’s expertise in the areas of Wealth Structuring, Investment Fund Services and Non-Traditional Assets. He played a key role in the corporate reorganisation and repositioning of the Group, thanks to his international profile, technical skills and business-oriented approach.
This new appointment is in line with the OneLife growth strategy launched in 2016:
  • to position the brand as a specialist provider of cross-border wealth solutions using life assurance across core markets and internationally
  • to increase our market share by reaping the benefits of significant investment made throughout the business over the past 2 years
  • to continue to serve our valued partners and clients effectively using digital capabilities to enhance the customer experience, so making it easy to do business with us.

We welcome him to our Board and wish him well in the important leadership role at OneLife”.

CareLineLive Delivers More Time to Care and a 50% Increase in Revenue for South Coast Care in Just One Year

CareLineLive, one of the UK’s most innovative care management systems, has been working with home care agencies to deliver more time to care through automating procedures, increasing revenue opportunities and decreasing unnecessary costs in their customers’ businesses.
Since installing CareLineLive, Karen Jacobs from South Coast Care, a home care agency with over 60 carers, has seen both the financial and operational benefits “CareLineLive has improved our business from day 1. It’s easy to use and has made us so much more efficient. We are billing an additional 300 hours through extra capacity and our revenue in the first year has increased by 50%.”
The challenges facing agencies that do not use effective care management systems are numerous; from endless paperwork to low staff productivity, inadequate carer-management communication and dissatisfied customers.
With CareLineLive, home care agencies enjoy countless benefits through their integrated 3-way system. The CareLineLive Management System improves cash flow through automating timesheets, increasing billing and payroll accuracy.
Used by Carers, the CareLineLive Mobile App increases shift reliability, productivity with instant access to rotas, and automatically logs visits. Not only that, the GPS tracker increases the personal safety of carers communicating carers’ locations at all times.
Recently launched, the CareLineLive Family & Friends website completes the user experience providing peace of mind about a loved one’s care with live updates about visit schedules, and access to carer notes so they are notified of any problems.
Unlike competitor systems on the market, CareLineLive is the only care management system available on short-term 1 year contracts and can be completely flexible to any size of business; “We chose CareLineLive over other systems as we were impressed with its functionality. Plus it’s been easy to install and can grow with our expanding business, as there were minimal set up costs and we didn’t need lots of new hardware” commented Ronnie Chatterton-Sim, Owner of Coastal Homecare.
To date, CareLineLive has seen impressive results, delivering proven efficiencies and value in their customers’ businesses that, as well as increasing revenue and profits, have led to a 65% reduction in payroll disputes resulting in increased staff retention and a 50% decrease in customer complaints. Furthermore, our customers’ costs have reduced with a 33% reduction in management to staff ratio and lower employment/training costs.
Josh Hough, Managing Director, said “We have already seen huge success with CareLineLive which is fantastic, we are excited about the launch of our new Friends & Family website and are passionate about continually innovating and improving our software to deliver increased value to our customers’ businesses… giving them more time to care and offer the very best service to their customers.”

Luxembourg, le le 6 avril 2018 – Dans la continuité de sa dynamique digitale, OneLife, le spécialiste luxembourgeois des solutions d’assurance-vie, est heureux d’annoncer la mise à disposition d’un nouveau service digital pour tous les CGPI établis en France. Les données de OneLife peuvent désormais être intégrées dans PRISME, le logiciel d’agrégation de la société Manymore.
OneLife a étroitement collaboré avec Manymore, qui se trouve parmi les leaders français de l’agrégation de données, afin de proposer à leurs CGPI communs ce nouveau service qui a l’avantage d’offrir une vue globale des positions en portefeuille pour chacun de leurs clients.
Le projet a été livré grâce à une collaboration très fructueuse entre OneLife et Manymore.

L’intégration efficace de ces nouveaux flux permet une consultation des contrats d’assurance-vie dans le cadre du portefeuille global des clients ».
La mise à disposition des flux s’inscrit dans un dispositif juridique et technique qui garantit la sécurité et la confidentialité des données à caractère personnel (anonymisation des données clients, protocole de transfert sécurisé, chiffrement des communications, clé d’authentification …).
La France est un marché majeur pour l’assureur-vie qui offre des solutions sur-mesure à ses CGPI français pour le compte de leurs clients fortunés et leurs familles établis en France et partout dans le monde. Cet engagement se traduit par une proximité sur le terrain et un service de qualité.
Cette initiative s’inscrit dans une démarche globale digitale, avec l’objectif d’améliorer le service à nos partenaires et clients. Christophe Risse, responsable du développement IT, précise : « Nous sommes pleinement en mesure de supporter le format Penelop, ce qui nous permettra d’étendre notre partenariat avec d’autres agrégateurs du marché en Europe. En complément, nous avons également récemment mis en place un service en B2B permettant à nos partenaires de se connecter en temps réel à notre plateforme afin de disposer de l’ensemble des informations disponibles sur leur portefeuille respectif ».
Dans la continuité de ce plan de transformation global, il ajoute : « Grâce aux investissements importants de OneLife dans le développement Digital, et suite au succès de l’application mobile OneApp destinée à nos CGPI, nous avons lancé une application mobile à destination de nos clients. En parallèle nous finalisons un processus de souscription entièrement électronique intégrant la signature digitale ».

OutSystems Launches The Digital Transformation Hub - New Educational Resource Centre for IT Leaders

London, 28th March 2018 - OutSystems, provider of the number one low-code development platform, today announced the launch of the OutSystems Digital Transformation Hub, an online resource centre, now available to assist companies on their digital transformation journeys.
The “hub” is a one-stop-shop for IT leaders to immerse themselves in the latest content on digital transformation with original research, analyst reports from Gartner, Forrester and IDC, peer-to-peer success stories, videos, eBooks, infographics, and rich content from OutSystems partners such as Cognizant and Deloitte.
Today, organisations are struggling with digital transformation, leaving the process either stalled, substandard, feared, or already failing. However, worldwide spending on digital transformation technologies, encompassing hardware, software, and services, is expected to reach nearly $1.3 trillion this year, according to forecasts from IDC. A solution is needed to guide the path to successful digital transformation.
For companies looking to improve their digital transformation success rates, the OutSystems Digital Transformation Hub will serve as an immersive multimedia experience with various free and helpful resources. With common obstacles such as massive backlogs, legacy debt, and resource challenges, OutSystems is addressing the obstacles with the new online portal. Assets include:
Why IT Struggles with Digital Transformation (and What to Do About It) eBook
As we enter 2018, two-thirds of Global 2000 CEOs have digital transformation at the centre of their corporate strategies. Yet many IT organisations continue to accumulate the crippling technical debt and spiralling complexity that holds back innovation. This new eBook from OutSystems will break down the four challenges that hold back digital transformation.
The Digital Transformation Foundation Playbook
Visitors can also learn about the new OutSystems methodology called the Low-Code Digital Factory and download The Digital Transformation Foundation Playbook. Organisations looking to scale low-code to support their entire digital transformation agendas, can use this playbook as a guide. They will see how to apply it to their digital transformation initiatives from beginning to end including the structure, talent, ecosystem, and processes needed to scale low-code from first app to many apps to enterprise-wide adoption.
Leading Digital Transformation Webinar Series
The company will host a webinar series addressing the biggest challenges facing today’s IT and digital leaders. The upcoming webinars will feature the following inspirational speakers:
  • Jason Bloomberg, President of Intellyx and notable Forbes contributor
  • Brian Roche, Vice President of Products at Cognizant Digital Business
  • Rick Virmani, Manager, Systems, City of Las Vegas
  • Mike Hughes, Director of Product Marketing, OutSystems
In the second webinar, Cognizant will show how its strategic partnership with OutSystems helps customers adapt to the new culture of low-code software development and digital transformation.
Visit the OutSystems Digital Transformation Hub to accelerate your digital journey.
“The digital transformation failure rate is staggering with only one in eight companies getting it right,” said Rui Pereira, VP of Digital Transformation and Co-Founder of OutSystems. “We wanted to create a comprehensive resource centre that deals with the major challenges IT leaders face with this critical topic. The OutSystems Digital Transformation Hub will address how to deliver new solutions with speed, scale, and security and how to best organise teams, resources, and processes.”
“Digital transformation isn’t about achieving some final, digitally transformed state, but rather building change itself as a core competency,” said Bloomberg. “That's why it's critical to expose yourself to strategies, trends, and tools that empower you to capitalise on change for the benefit of your business. OutSystems events deliver practical insights from industry leaders and hands-on learning opportunities with low-code experts for anyone wishing to leverage change for competitive advantage.”
“There is a clear need in the market for more education around digital skills, tools, and real-life, technical projects in order to achieve positive digital transformation,” said Roche. “We’re happy to partner with OutSystems to discuss the challenges to meet this need and the path to successful digital transformation.”
