About NIS


Our history started in 1996, when three highly innovative friends set out with a mission – to redefine the travel insurance industry through technology. Together with a small, ambitious team of software developers, the founders designed one of the first interactive travel insurance applications utilizing state-of-the-art technology. Over the next 20 years, we continued to grow and innovate, continuously improving our software platforms based on industry trends, customer needs, and dedication to our mission.

Today, we are a global provider of end-to-end software solutions with installations in more than 40 countries across the globe. We have a full suite of solutions that can be fitted to insurance companies of all sizes and a very determined team of people that will always do their utmost to tailor a solution that is just right for our customers and their specific needs.

We have grown from being a company of three people to employing more than 65 staff in 4 locations. Our headquarters remain in Copenhagen and we have implementation teams in London and Toronto and a development and test team in Wroclaw, Poland.

In 2014, we joined the Acturis group, which is a leading Software as a Service provider to the general insurance industry. You can learn more about Acturis at www.acturis.com

Our founders’ mission remains at the core of what we do at NIS. Our goal is to continue to push technological innovation into the travel, health and expatriate insurance industries, and help guide our customers, partners and marketplace to a more connected future.
