Thryve, South African-based provider of insurance, risk and governance technology solutions, has set up shop in Toronto, Canada.
The new office is aimed at tapping the fast-emerging and growing digital Canadian market.
Thryve is a leading South African company with international partners, providing cloud-based insurance administration, risk management systems and CRM systems to a blue-chip client profile of large South African corporates and insurance intermediaries.
Thryve already operates offices in Johannesburg, as well as in London.
The expansion into Canada comes at a time when that country’s technology ambitions are booming. Canadian businesses have been quietly yet prolifically transforming to make use of digital technologies. The demand for technology skills reflects this demand: according to the CBRE’s Scoring Tech Talent Report, Toronto has created more technology jobs in 2018 than San Francisco and Washington combined.
“The technology sector in Canada is growing at an incredible rate,” said Neer Rama, Force Solutions Product Manager at Thryve.
“We believe that this is the right time to enter the market and offer our cutting edge risk and insurance solutions to a wider audience.”
As part of establishing itself in the market, Thryve is narrowing its offerings for Canada. There will be a major focus on the insurance industry, such as bringing the powerful Salesforce for Insurance CRM to the market.
Another emphasis will be on wholesale solutions for Mutual Insurance companies, as well as tailoring Thryve’s services to meet the different demands in Canada’s diverse insurance environment.
Canada’s appetite for digital services is both large and demanding. Only the best are able to serve such a globally-leading, technology-fueled country.
As it opens its first office in the dynamic North American market, thryve is confident that it will become a valuable and sought-after partner for Canadian businesses
