Open GI Rolls Out New Product Line To Extensive Contracts
by Stewart Douglas
Broker solutions company Open GI has today announced it is to provide its latest range of products to an additional 10,000 licensees following the arrangement of several notable service contracts within the broker and intermediary markets in a move that will see it bring its award winning software products to a wider market.
The provision contracts will see Open GI and its desktop software Open-i, which is designed to provide the tools for insurance brokers to integrate present systems more easily throughout practice areas, along with supporting back office infrastructure in the form of OpenConnect. OpenWord will also be included to allow conversion and integration with Microsoft Word format documents.
The extension of Open GI software provision will allow businesses within the insurance industry to upgrade their computer systems without jeopardising their current operations, in order to improve operating efficiency and enable the benefits of modern technologies within the brokering industry.
“Open GI brokers can enjoy the features and benefits of the new products without needing to undertake a wholesale replacement of their business-critical trading platform. It’s encouraging that so many brokers are taking advantage of the enhanced functionality and recognising the important role technology has to play within their business and the industry as a whole” said Simon Hughes, sales director of Open GI.
He added “the new products have been a real success with a huge surge in uptake since their launch. Our core back office system has led the market for years in terms of reliability, general functionality and depth of insurer product availability as evidenced by our footprint. We’ve protected the investment our brokers have made in that core system by adding this range of complementary products built on new technologies.”
