“La Mondiale selects Atos Origin to host its two main websites”

Paris - September 15, 2003


La Mondiale, the only French mutual insurance company devoted solely to personal insurance, has chosen Atos Origin's hosting services to develop its Internet strategy. La Mondiale's corporate and customer websites are hosted in a specialized environment on Atos Origin's multimedia platform.

As part of the development of its Internet strategy, La Mondiale has reconsidered the positioning of its online services and decided to focus on functions that expand and enhance its web-based customer relations. In addition to its corporate site (www.lamondiale.fr), the company has launched a fully dedicated customer site (https:clients.lamondiale.fr) to broaden the scope of its customer services.

The new site allows customers to access personalized content with a user ID and password. Thanks to the site's interactive features, customers can check the details of their La Mondiale policies (savings balance, most recent deposit, scheduled deposits), verify and modify personal data (name, address, telephone number, family and business information), review the status of current claims or catch up on financial news (monthly newsletter, product performance reviews).

Rationalizing multi-site operation while maintaining high quality service

One of the goals of La Mondiale's revamped Internet strategy was to establish a single platform for all of its sites.

In opting for hosting in a specialized environment on Atos Origin's multimedia platform, La Mondiale is looking to rationalize the operation of its websites while containing costs and providing flawless service on all sites.

"The most important factors in choosing a host were long-term reliability and a clear commitment to quality. The customer site has a strong impact on our corporate image, so the choice of host was critical," commented La Mondiale. "Based on its extensive hosting expertise, Atos Origin was the right partner for us. The first few weeks of operation justify the trust we placed in Atos Origin. The level of service meets our expectations, and the team work is first-rate."

This promising start paves the way for La Mondiale to gradually host new websites on its dedicated platform.
The services provided by Atos Origin for this project included defining La Mondiale's specialized hosting requirements, integrating the websites on its multimedia platform and providing dedicated server hosting in a high-availability configuration.
