The Municipality of Horsens has a population of almost 80.000 people, after the local government reform 1 January 2007 joined the municipalities of Brædstrup, Gedved and Horsens. The Municipality of Horsens is governed by a mayor and a municipal council of 31 elected politicians. The Municipality of Horsens covers 542 square kilometers.
All companies in Denmark must use the official governmental electronic reporting system, EASY, to register all workplace accidents. This includes all governmental institutions, including all Danish municipalities.
At that time, the process for submitting workplace accidents could extend across 8 pages. Horsens employees frequently experienced situations where the EASY system ‘froze’, which was both extremely frustrating and a waste of valuable time.
Based on the Municipality’s experience with the official EASY system, they initiated a dialogue session with several database providers, to find a solution which would allow them to manage their data whilst integrating with the EASY system, avoiding duplication of work and improving the process.
The Municipality of Horsens could only identify one supplier that met their high standards and requirements: InsuBiz. A fully integrated solution for the decentralised reporting of workplace accidents, central administration and seamless integration with the Government system.

The implementation took place in April 2011. Part of the process was for InsuBiz to convert the historical data back to 2004, to each of the over +3,700 claims.
Additionally, Jacob Alsing also requested the conversion of all documents and files for each and every of the +3,700 claims.
With InsuBiz fully functional the reduction in cost per incident has been reduced by as much as 75%. This is achieved by substantially optimizing: Centralised and Decentralised claim registration; information gathering, calculating claim costs including the cost of absences, synchronization with Government system, standard letter templates and building a case journal
The extensive statistical functionality provided by InsuBiz has enabled Horsens to identify the underlying root cause of claims, enabling them to improve prevention measures and ensuring all departments adhere to the same standards.
They have made a quantum leap forward in accident prevention across their organisation.
