Local software firm invests in new research and development facility to promote global growth

  • Coleraine based Covernet has launched a new dedicated research and development lab to deliver smart, future-ready software.

    Discovernet is a dedicated division which the business say will allow them to innovate and develop on a global scale, staying one step ahead of the competition.

    For over 25 years, Covernet has been helping insurers get to market faster, better and smarter and the business has been evolving and innovating through-out that time. 

    Speaking about the new facility, Lee Stuart, Managing Director of Covernet said: “We see ourselves as pioneers in insurance software and recognised that for innovation to remain at the heart of our ethos, we needed to create a dedicated space for it to be nurtured. Discovernet is where we generate the conceptual sparks that lead to new innovations, where we work together to create the building blocks of our platform and our industry’s future.”

    Covernet say they have always been innovative in the field of insurance software and 2021 marks a watershed moment, as the creation of this facility will enable the business to not only improve its service for current customers, but to respond to market demand on a global scale.

    Through research and development, Discovernet will offer benefits to clients, both current and new, exploring opportunities through robotic process automation (RPA), artificial intelligence (AI), Blockchain and other emerging technologies.
