Howard Global – specialist Lloyd’s broker
- Active Underwriter – Quote and Bind solution
Howard Global together with Galileo Underwriting were looking for an IT supplier who could build a bespoke system for their bloodstock facility with the aim of enabling them to widen their book to include more of the high volume, low premium business.
“VIPR came with excellent references and we were impressed by their ability to understand what we required from the start. We knew the complexity of the rating structure and nature of the bloodstock insurance business would raise challenges during the development. However, throughout the project the VIPR team demonstrated flexibility and a commitment to deliver against a very tight delivery schedule and desire to work in a collaborative style with the team here. We now have a product that is precisely what we wanted and we are very proud of it. The system has created two new business opportunities with new agents who have been extremely impressed by its capabilities. We are now in the process of appointing VIPR to build a further product to enable the online transaction of livestock business.”
Martin Spencer, CIO, Howard Global
“VIPR has been a great partner to work with and all in the team have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to the project. The end product has enabled us to give our network of US agents the ability to quote and bind risks in 50 US states”.
