Vince Blockley, Crocus Support Director

strong working relationship with Pacific Life Re

Crocus Consulting (, a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), has announced the extension of its support contract for PeopleSoft Financials with Pacific Life Re Services Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Pacific LifeCorp, the parent company of Pacific Life Insurance Company.

Pacific Life Re offers a comprehensive range of wholesale life risk management products and services in the UK, Ireland, Asia and North America.

Crocus which has been supplying support for PeopleSoft Financials to Pacific Life Re since 2008 was awarded the extended contract to support users across US time-zones following Pacific Life’s purchase, earlier this year, of Manulife Financial Corporation’s life retrocession business.

Crocus Customer Support Director Vince Blockley welcomed the decision noting, “We have built a strong working relationship with Pacific Life Re over the period that we have been supporting their reinsurance operation in the UK. It is pleasing therefore that this relationship has extended further, with Pacific Life Re recognising the abilities of Crocus to meet their needs by supplying a transatlantic solution. We have always sought to deliver solutions that grow with our clients’ needs as they evolve and this is an excellent example of our ability to do just that. We look forward to working closely with Pacific Life Re in supporting their PeopleSoft Financials solution further.”

For his part Andrew Wild IT Director of Pacific Life Re added, “Crocus has successfully supported our PeopleSoft Financials operations in the UK since 2008. The recent acquisition meant that we needed to extend this support cover to take into account users based in Canada. We asked Crocus to provide a solution and it has quite simply been a very smooth and painless process to effect.”
