Profile

LISS Systems is a leading provider of policy administration solutions for the Life and Pensions industry, combining both depth of life industry knowledge with proven expertise in the design and delivery of core system solutions.

Distinct versions of the LISSIA system, built from the same base design, support Individual and Group contracts. Both provide extreme flexibility to support new products and processes allied with total financial integrity from fully integrated double entry accounting.

The system is designed to be controlled by the business, with extensive parameterisation and table structures that minimise the need for system development to support business change.

LISS Systems offer a full range of services in support of the LISSIA System, including initial analysis and specification, training, development and implementation, data conversion, and support and maintenance. The company places a particularly strong emphasis on the latter, maintaining long-term relationships with its core customers.

LISSIA has been in live production since 2002, and supports in excess of 1 million policies at its largest installation.

The future is eLISSIA...

The People

As a growing company in a high tech industry, people are our key asset - their range of skills is, and has to be, extensive. Our staff are flexible, adaptable and ready to take responsibility.

LISS concentrates on building in-depth insurance knowledge throughout its teams, so that what we consider to be the essential business-facing approach of the company is maintained.

The LISS Management Team:

David Hanley - Managing Director

David has been with LISS Systems since 2000, a director of the company from 2001 and Managing Director since 2007. He started out in the late 1970s at Guardian Royal Exchange plc (then a top three UK composite insurer) in their Asset Management subsidiary after completing a Masters degree in Economics. He moved into a Group business management role later on where he gained extensive experience of both Life and General insurance business worldwide. After AXA Insurance acquired Guardian he worked as a director on a number of programme management and change management assignments before moving to LISS systems.

David has responsibility for the day-to-day management of LISS Systems and is actively involved across all LISSIA projects and clients. He works closely with the other directors in areas of business development, resourcing and relationships with clients and strategic partners.

Guy Williams - Sales and Marketing Director

Guy joined the Board of Liss Systems in March 2014 after being both a client and a consultant to the company. He has a track record of over 30 years in Financial Services and started his career in sales before moving into business development, operations and various senior management roles within a number of blue chip insurers.

In 2006 Guy became General Manager of a market leading Protection Distributor and subsequently launched a start up Protection Distribution business, eLife. It was during this period in 2009 that Guy first worked with Liss, who supplied the Protection Platform that enabled eLife to partner with an Insurer and Reinsurer and create a unique online Life Insurance Product, eLife.co.uk, which was the firstof its type in the UK market.

Since then Guy has worked predominantly in a consultancy capacity at the centre of the emerging D2C Protection market with Distributors, Insurers and Reinsurers to help shape and merge business requirements with technical solution. In the past 12 months prior to joining LISS Guy helped to shape their core Protection Proposition, and has helped LISS to win new business and raise their profile across the market.

Guy has responsibility for the development and delivery of a sales strategy to win new clients and ensure that LISS enjoys a high profile in their target markets, in addition to managing ongoing client relationships. Guy also contributes to LISS's ongoing product and service innovation.

This has included both General and Life, from broking and underwriting perspectives.

Howard and Derek have together provided the vision and insight for the LISSIA system, which embodies their combined experience of the life industry. Most life administration platforms claim to be flexible, open and easy to change, but the design of LISSIA has proven outstanding in its inherent flexibility to support sophisticated products and newer, web-based business models.

Howard remains at the forefront of design and specification of new function, seeing this through into development and delivery. He also manages and oversees the technical direction of all client versions of LISSIA.

This version of LISSIA supports Group Risk and Group Savings. Both Alicja and Derek have collaborated closely on the design of this version, which has been in live production since 2003.

Alicja heads an experienced team that now supports and maintains the Group version, and forms the skill base for further implementations of the system. The most recent of which has been for Generali Pan Europe (GPE) based in Dublin.

Alicja has managed the client relationship with Generali throughout the expansion of its international employee benefits business, providing the systems that have underpinned their growth strategy. Both GW and GPE also form part of the Global Generali EB business, offering a sophisticated range of employee benefit solutions, including group protection, retirement, savings and investment.
