The Electrical Contractors’ Insurance Company has teamed up with insurance technology company Acturis to deliver a range of online tradesman products.
The ECIC provides specialist insurances for electrical contractors and other trades. The new auto-rated facility will support the product range for this existing client base - and allow them to be sold via brokers and direct to customers.
Roger Brown, managing director of ECIC, commented: “My objective is to bring our specialist range of products to a much wider audience, and via new channels. Many ECA members have told us that they would like to be able to buy an autorated insurance package online – whether through their broker or direct. Working with Acturis will give us the capability to deliver such a product.
“We are delighted to be working with a provider such as Acturis, whose reputation as a specialist insurance technology provider is every bit as strong as our own reputation in the electrical contracting space.”
Theo Duchen, co-chief executive of Acturis, commented: “We are delighted to be working with the team at Electrical Contractors’ Insurance company, and we expect to be able to deliver a whole new generation of products for their client base, helping them to better serve the large and specialist UK tradesman insurance marketplace.”
