Open GI will equip Be Wiser with a full quote-and-buy solution using  its eBroker for PowerPlace technology, fully integrated into Open GI’s Core Back-Office system.

Currently, Be Wiser has the functionality to offer both Property Owners and Tradesman quotes through the system to its SME clients via the web. In addition, Be Wiser will also be provided with additional product lines later this month including Shop, Office & Surgeries, Hotels, Pubs and Restaurants; making Be Wiser the first independent broker to have an extensive online offering through a quote-and-buy system serving the UK SME market.

“The growth we have experienced on Personal Lines has been fantastic. Learning from that journey, Be Wiser is now venturing into the Commercial Lines market to serve our growing SME client base.”

Be Wiser’s Chairman, Mark Bower Dyke, explained further:

“Choosing Open GI as our technology partner to support our Commercial Lines arm has been a straightforward decision for us. They have demonstrated their expertise in Commercial Lines technology and we have worked with them and PowerPlace over the last few months to ensure the functionality Be Wiser has will give our customers greater choice at the touch of a button.”

Be Wiser’s Chairman, Mark Bower Dyke, explained further:

“This is a significant win for Open GI and PowerPlace and we are delighted to have been chosen as Be Wiser’s technology provider for Commercial Lines. eBroker for PowerPlace is gaining genuine momentum as a solution that enables brokers to service their SME clients via the web and the additional lines of business we are adding only strengthens that proposition.”
