Sentro has been selected from over 700 applicants to join the Holt Fintech Accelerator.  This Montreal-based program gives Sentro direct access to prospective customers, investors and advisors in the Canadian market.  Holt is also making an investment in Sentro as part of this program.

Even just a couple of weeks in, we've been really impressed by the Holt team, their advisors and mentors, and the commitment they are showing to help us be successful.

We welcome international interns

Sentro has welcomed 2 new interns via the international Virtual Internships program.  Virtual Internships place undergraduate students with relevant businesses worldwide for internships and professional development.

"We love the idea of this program" said Rob Ellis. "We have had good experiences with New Zealand students doing internships in our business.  This program lets us engage online with students in other parts of the world.  As we and our customers are already doing a lot of work and meetings online because of COVID-19, having new team members in other parts of the world is totally natural for us.  We have welcomed the interns into the business this month, and we are looking forward to their energy and what they will contribute to Sentro while they are working with us".

Product News

New and improved Sentro Connect Service Provider functionality is nearing release to customers.  

"We're really excited about this" said Hans Frauenlob. "Insurers need to be able to easily incorporate non-insurance offers and services with their group insurance and benefits propositions.  It builds customer loyalty, and helps differentiate them in the marketplace.  Until now, insurers haven't had the tools to be able to easily incorporate other services into their group schemes, and get them in front of customers as a joined-up experience.".

"Sentro Connect Service Provider changes the game.  Insurers can easily incorporate offers and services with their insurance products.  If the customer is using our Engage employee self-service portal, they can also offer that to employers as a branded, integrated employee experience".

If you'd like a preview demo of our new functionality, please drop us a line at sales@sentro.co.
