At Simply Business we believe in technology. Contrary to many insurance organisations we see technology as an enabler and embrace open source tools & agile development techniques to drive our success. Our forward-thinking approach has helped us become the UK’s largest online business insurance broker, and we want to keep challenging the industry with exciting new technology options.
We are therefore proud to announce the launch of Willis eQuote – a unique new platform that represents a new way for independent brokers to do business. Building on the benefits of 10 years investment in a direct-to-consumer platform the launch of Willis eQuote is our first step into helping brokers utilise the products and tools we have in our stable. We believe that the agility of our development process, the lean product deployment methodology we are building and the consumer insight that Willis and its Network will bring to our partnership will drive a market-leading broker platform in years to come.
Willis eQuote is the foundation of a new partnership between Simply Business and Willis Networks. The platform provides the Networks’ 130 members with access to our portfolio of small business insurance products, covering more than 800 trades.
Independent brokers will now be able to access this competitive range of products instantly, using an intuitive, purpose-built interface. When combined with their considerable expertise and experience, Willis eQuote therefore provides brokers with a highly effective new way to fulfil their customers’ needs quickly and cost-effectively.
Willis eQuote is a key part of our continuing drive to fuse exciting technology and great customer service to provide businesses with the cover they need. Willis eQuote will continue to evolve – but today’s launch represents an important milestone for Willis Networks members and, crucially, for their customers.
