Hiscox is a leading specialist insurer headquartered in Bermuda, with roots dating back to 1901. It specialises in specific types of insurance, often focusing on areas other insurers find too complex to handle.


Hiscox wanted to transform its internal operations into a near paperless process in a bid to speed up business and reduce human error.


The company selected the Fujitsu fi-6800 Production Scanner as the best performing, most elegantly designed available device. However, it soon realised it would also need to incorporate a security protocol to enable employee access, improve workflow and ensure documents were assigned to the right person.


Hiscox looked at several of the most common security methods, including fingerprint, facial recognition and RFID cards but none met its brief. Fujitsu partner Security Systems Technology Ltd suggested that palm vein scanning might be the best way forward. Hiscox agreed and brought in one Fujitsu PalmSecure reader and a Software Development Kit (SDK) in order to develop its own interface.


“We reviewed the palm vein technology and were impressed with Fujitsu PalmSecure’s maturity and extensive use across a range of business sectors. Palm vein scanning is non-intrusive, intuitive and
has extremely low false readings so it was the perfect fit for us.”

Juha Punnonen, CIO, Alma Media


The customer

Alma Media is a strong regional and national media group in Finland with a range of well-known brands as the foundation of its operations. The company’s strategy is to refine its newspapers into multimedia brands and introduce new digital services to the market. In addition to news services, the company’s products provide information related to lifestyle, career and business development. The services of Alma Media have expanded from Finland to Nordic countries, the Baltics and Central Europe. Its best known products are Aamulehti, Iltalehti, Kauppalehti,, and City24.
The challenge


Alma Media needed a trusted partner that could take responsibility for the operation of basic IT services, allowing it to reduce costs while introducing new products.
The solution


It has now outsourced its service desk, along with datacenter services, workplace support and other core functions to Fujitsu as part of a relationship that now spans ten years.
The benefit
Fujitsu’s datacenter provides 24×7 operation with inbuilt resilience, ensuring that Alma Media’s newspapers land on doorsteps across the country every morning without fail.

• By transitioning service desks to Estonia and server management to Poland and South Africa, Fujitsu has significantly lowered costs without compromising user satisfaction.

• A newly introduced mobile management strategy means that employees can use any device of their choosing and still be guaranteed support from Fujitsu, improving productivity.

• By migrating to Microsoft Office 365, Alma Media has cut costs by 50 percent while doubling user capacity to 50GB.
