Are the reasons we chose our current solution still valid?

Yes, absolutely. The overall value proposition will naturally be enhanced to incorporate the strengths in the Riskonnect solution. The addition of Riskonnect capabilities through the acquisition will notably enhance our overall service offerings and market positioning. Notably, Riskonnect brings robust capabilities in insurable risk, a domain previously unexplored by Camms. The offering from Camms, still encompasses all the differentiating factors that it did before, including, but not limited to, our modular approach which can enable you to scale as your needs evolve and grow and our ability to link risk to strategic objectives in a single platform.

What are the plans and timings for platform integration (Camms and Riskonnect)?

As we progress through the integration planning, we will keep you informed about any developments related to this matter. Your feedback and insights are invaluable to us, and we welcome any thoughts you may as we develop our plans.
