Case study

Retraites Populaires uses a high-quality virtualization solution

Challenge

Respond to increased productivity
Founded over 110 years ago, the mission of Retraites Populaires is to be the expert on life insurance and occupational pensions in the Canton of Vaud, Switzerland. A player in real estate, mortgages and loans, and supplementary pension management, Retraites Populaires serves individuals, businesses, and institutions with its skills and expertise. From its headquarters in Lausanne and its two agencies in Yverdon-les-Bains and Nyon, it offers a wide range of services for each stage of life.
The company, which employs 355 people, achieved a turnover of �600 million in 2017 and now has more than 200,000 affiliates.
While the company had thus far managed to keep up with its IT needs, the performance of its aging architecture was increasingly poor. It was clearly coming to the end of its life, and its maintenance contract was also due to expire. Retraites Populaires also wanted to expand its services and its customer base. The company had a specific objective for 2025 - to have an efficient platform and to optimize its processes while retaining its policyholders. Retraites Populaires entrusted its IT partner, Bechtle, with the task of finding the ideal solution.
