Managing Director, Fund Administration Company
“It’s not enough just to have a customer service vision – we have to be able to deliver on it. When markets are challenging, clients demand more from their service providers. Most large TPAs aren’t engineered to meet this demand. They tend to deliver a basic level of service to all but their very largest of customers which ultimately led us to setup our own company and to focus on customer service. By implementing a complete solution from Microgen we will be able to provide a significantly enhanced level of service provision that sets us apart from the market.”
