Acturis has been announced the winner of the 2017 Cloudex awards. Today it provides its platform to many of the UK’s largest general insurers and brokers.
Now in its fifth year, Clearwater International launched its Cloudex awards to profile the most innovative and emerging companies in the UK cloud industry. Since then cloud technologies have transformed the way companies do business, both internally and externally, across virtually every sector of the economy.
Following the success of previous awards, this year’s distinguished panel of judges drew up a shortlist of 20 companies before selecting a winner. The judges remarked that this year saw a very high quality of entries across a broad range of sectors. As Emma Rodgers, Director at Clearwater International said: “It demonstrates that the cloud is now all-pervasive across different markets. Even those sectors which have traditionally been slower to adopt new technologies are now seeing take-up.”
Theo Duchen, Co-CEO, Acturis Group, said: “We are very grateful for the recognition. This is not a one day wonder, this is 16 years in the making! It has been a gradual climb and we are finally seeing the benefits of that. Because we are a pure disruptor in a very conservative market it has taken persistence and a connected offer to win over customers, and it takes a while for such a conservative market to have the courage to embrace the cloud.
“But what we do has massive benefits for productivity. We are now the biggest player in Germany and are looking to replicate that in other geographies in Europe and beyond.”
Emma Rodgers, Director, Clearwater International, commented: “From the start Acturis has been a real disruptor, changing the model of the market and more importantly, taking the market through that change. A very professional business with great market share and fantastic financials that has delivered time and again.”
