a.s.r. takes important step for future pension system
a.s.r. centralises and modernises its main pension IT systems on Keylane's SaaS platform Plexus.
With this, a.s.r. takes an important step in the preparation for the national pension reforms, which will be fully effective from 1 January 2026. The new platform will provide pension administration for more than one million a.s.r. participants, which is now divided over three different systems. a.s.r. expects the full transition to be completed by mid-2025.
In the collaboration with Keylane, a.s.r. found the right supplier to build a modern, centralised platform with integrated employer and advisor portals and one portal for the a.s.r. participant. The platform also has a broad DC and DB functionality and a robust SaaS-architecture. This makes the Plexus system very suitable for the customer-oriented and efficient management of the pension administration of the a.s.r. participants.
Folkert Pama, director of pensions a.s.r.: ‘We are pleased to announce this step and the expansion of our partnership with Keylane. The transition of our system is critical to facilitate a smooth transition in view of the upcoming pension reforms. Where we used to work through three landscapes, we will soon be doing that from one. This is an enormous efficiency battle. This transition offers both our customers and a.s.r. convenience, simplicity, good digital customer service and also makes it possible to continuously innovate and respond quickly to the changing needs of the market.’
Christoffel van Riet, Executive Director Life & Pension Benelux at Keylane: ‘Keylane is incredibly proud that a.s.r. is expanding our existing relationship by selecting the Keylane Plexus platform for a.s.r. pensions. a.s.r. pensions is dedicated to helping people make better, more sustainable choices for their future on a daily basis, and this resonates strongly with us. We look forward to empowering a.s.r. and supporting them in the transition to the New Pension Contract.’
