"Zurich is developing the BPM solution in co-creation sessions thanks to how Pega is designed. This approach results in a solution not only developed together with our users but also based on their specific needs. It has led to a very strong buy in for the solution and has also meant that we have the benefit of real-time change management," Ruchti added.

Alan Trefler, Founder & CEO, Pegasystems concludes, "Zurich has a vision to improve service quality, which is exactly what Pega strives to help our customers achieve with every implementation.
