Add-on Marketplace bolstered with new claims assistance products from CEC

Leading claims assistance provider, CEC, has teamed up with Open GI to launch a delivery of claims assistance products for insurance brokers and their clients. The new products launched at BIBA 2017 and will be available across commercial and personal lines of business.

“We are delighted to be able to partner with Open GI, who are a key player in the insurance broking sector. This development supports our aim of driving forward the claims assistance debate with brokers. The FCA previously identified service weaknesses across the claims sector, particularly where policyholders are left to project manage their own claims. The support provided by CEC’s Loss Adjusting network to brokers and their clients fills this service gap. The partnership with Open GI will allow us to further expand the distribution of our support products.”

Commenting on the launch, Scott Robinson, Head of Marketing, Client Relationships and Development, said:

“The market is changing rapidly and with claims undoubtedly being a hot topic, it is vital that we work with a partner who understands the needs of our brokers and can deliver products that really work. We are therefore delighted to be collaboratively working with CEC to distribute their new product suite to our broker market and look forward to assisting our brokers further in this area.”
