THE CHALLENGE

Adler Insurance Brokers, a long-term client of Acturis and a specialist in construction risks, property and business insurance, wanted to update their existing Acturis Client Service Portal to allow both potential and existing customers to buy policies online. In a competitive market, Adler wanted a feature rich, mobile friendly solution to best serve their clients.

THE SOLUTION

Acturis provided Adler with an industry-leading quote and buy website, later upgrading and integrating their client service portal functionality into the site to provide maximum benefit to all of their customers. The new website allowed Adler to provide their clients (both existing and new) with a panel of insurer quotes, integrated payment, claims reporting, online documentation and much more, presented in an Adler branded website incorporating mobile and tablet support as standard.

THE CHALLENGE

In early 2015, MS Amlin wanted to expand its product offering in to the SME market, and were looking to take advantage of the growing trend for electronic trading and distribution of these product classes.  MS Amlin wanted an industry-leading multi-channel platform to maximise product distribution, without compromising on underwriter flexibility and MS Amlin’s focus on broker service.

THE SOLUTION

MS Amlin and Acturis worked closely together to develop an integrated Commercial Combined etrade package, taking only 5 months from kick-off to go-live.  This made use of Acturis’ enhanced referral solution, giving MS Amlin underwriters direct contact with Acturis brokers, allowing them to review and write non-standard business.  Building on the successes of this development, further products, Property Owners and Fleet, have been launched, with Shops in progress, with these also being distributed through the new MS Amlin broker portal, ePlace.

THE CHALLENGE

AXA is one of the largest General insurers in the UK.  At the end of 2010, as part of their strategic plan, AXA began to accelerate their digital multi channel distribution programme in SME Commercial Lines. This included the development and hosting of a portfolio of commercial lines etrade products and the delivery of these products:

  • Through a market leading broker extranet for commercial lines;
  • To all the leading broker software houses in the UK market
  • Creating the flexibility to deliver a selection of these products in a white label capacity for Affinity/White Label deals

The pace and digital trajectory AXA set out to achieve, meant that many of the delivery timelines were under 9 months – significantly quicker that previous deliverables.

THE SOLUTION

AXA and Acturis approached the strategy using the Acturis SaaS platform to expedite delivery of the solution using dedicated teams at both AXA and Acturis.  The initial solution was successfully launched within 4.5 months in February 2012 (“AXA Connect”) and a series of further enhancements followed quickly thereafter including: the addition of more commercial products to the solution such as Fleet, Commercial Combined and Professional Indemnity; and the expansion of channels to include integration to all leading software houses in the UK market. At all times the team utilised Acturis’ expertise and understanding of the software house market and developed a practical approach aimed at making use of existing infrastructure and functionality and ‘not reinventing the wheel’.

THE CHALLENGE

In 2016, Home & Legacy was looking to refresh its existing High Net Worth platform solution for brokers. They wanted a rapid, clean, and streamlined solution to make it easy for users to take advantage of their existing panel of insurers, whilst at the same time expanding the functionality available to brokers.

THE SOLUTION

Home & Legacy and Acturis worked together to design a brand new website solution (Home & Legacy Online) to take advantage of the existing Acturis Connect functionality built into the HNW product. This allowed the website to communicate directly with the underlying rating engine, returning a full panel of quotes in under 2 seconds – a 60% reduction when compared to the existing solution. In addition, Home & Legacy Online also supports multiple payment methods, web chat, claims and policy overview, and Home & Legacy plans to make MTA and Renewal functionality available to brokers later in 2017.

In 2006 Acturis and RSA successfully implemented a complete suite of SME products traded both on the Acturis system and through the RSA Online broker web portal. Since then, RSA and Acturis have continuously been improving these products to extend the underwriting footprint, improve pricing and enhance the service offering.

As part of RSA’s successful strategy of implementing deals with individual brokers, RSA needed Acturis to provide a tool which allowed RSA to rapidly implement these deals outside of the core rating algorithm. This tool would allow RSA to make the changes without risk, and without a build and test cycle.

Acturis and RSA worked together to design and implement a tool which allows products to flex in terms of premium, commission and endorsements functionality without the need for any core algorithm changes. The tool is now widely used for the RSA broker base.

Jeff McCracken, Sales and Marketing Director at Acturis said, “Acturis and RSA have built a strong relationship over many years, and together we’ve implemented twelve products across property, liability, motor and speciality lines. We continue to innovate with RSA and the deals tool is a great example of how Acturis technology can enable our customers’ business.”
