About C Consulting International

C Consulting International (CCI) - a company controlled by C Consulting S.p.A. - was founded in 2014. Other shareholders include well-known Italian and foreign professionals.
CCI's mission is to promote the diffusion of the XLayers solution on international markets and to assist Clients in the implementation of this solution so they can derive the expected benefits.
XLayers is the market leader in Italy for the management, control and certification of reinsurance. It is the only system on the market still owned by the initial developer (C Consulting S.p.A.), that has always been totally dedicated to the reinsurance "niche". Even the staff of specialists is made up of those who had conceived and developed the first version of the system. They are more than thirty and include reinsurance experts from the reinsurance and IT departments of large and even international insurance companies where they spent many years.
XLayers has been the focus of the activity of C Consulting S.p.A. for the past 15 years and is now being used successfully by more than 50 Customers (the majority of which operate on the Italian market) that actively participate in the "User Group". This was created years ago for transparency reasons and to give C Consulting a greater opportunity to understand the needs of the market concerning new enhancements for future versions of XLayers.
There is an obvious link between the Italian regulator's rules, that are quite advanced if compared to the rest of Europe, and the needs linked to Solvency II. CCI decided to invest in the international project because of the obvious similarities between these issues and the lack of alternatives equally advanced and reliable alternatives to XLayers.
The XLayers system has since been further developed with an English version as well as a new, updated and flexible reporting system.
CCI operates abroad either through a network of international partners (some of them are already operational) or by arranging presentations and demos directly to heads and employees of the relevant departments (Reinsurance, Financial Management, Risk Management, Compliance, Operations as well as Top Management). CCI is representend at these meetings with at least two high level professionals: a reinsurance manager with extensive experience in this area and an XLayers specialist who has completed several implementations over recent years.
