Alfa Insurance Partners With Cigniti Technologies

IRVING, Texas (Jan. 5, 2015) - Alfa Mutual Insurance Co. has partnered with Cigniti Technologies to establish a dedicated Test Center of Excellence (TCoE). This multi-year, multi-million-dollar contract is just the latest step AlfaR is taking to enhance its technology.

"Creating a Test Center of Excellence enables the company to improve the quality of our enterprise applications," said Alfa Vice President of Quality Assurance (QA) Ron Wilson. "By partnering with Cigniti, North America's largest independent software testing services organization, we were confident we could create a quality model that focuses on increasing the efficiency and transparency of the entire QA organization. The resulting TCoE will follow our goal of securing proven software testing technologies while maintaining focus on the pressing need to keep the test organization lean and highly optimized. Through Cigniti, Alfa can accomplish both tasks."

Cigniti Executive Vice President Gary Smith said he is excited to welcome Alfa to its esteemed list of clients.

"We are committed to building a successful, long-term relationship with all of our clients, and we are glad to have been chosen as the preferred strategic testing services partner to establish the TCoE for Alfa insurance," Smith said.

The phased approach adopted will leverage Cigniti's process framework to ensure Alfa's both short- and long-term QA needs are met during the TCoE establishment."
