JB Brokers partner with Open GI

JB Brokers joins Open GI to fast-track its customer experience and tailor-made policy growth plans.

Liverpool-based JB Brokers Ltd, run by Mark Brown and Matt Kerr, have over 30 years general insurance experience. They have recently migrated over to Open GI, following a remote implementation during current Coronavirus pandemic. Prior to the new partnership, they used a platform from Applied Systems.

The broker has moved onto Open GI’s agile digital platform – Core Cloud – which offers extensive access to market-leading insurers and partners and supports marketing opportunities to help grow market share. The secure platform has continuous up time, allowing brokers to deliver a first-class service to their clients.

“Having used Open GI in previous companies, I found this to be an easy and most efficient system – ideal for what we need today. You can run reports easily, maintain diary chasers, transact EDI business, and send client letters – all key factors when choosing to move platforms.

“Changing software providers is never easy. But this transition has been seamless, especially considering the current climate. In my opinion, Open GI (as a partner) are easier to work with. Their technology is more user friendly and you can quickly make notes and process transactions in seconds, which is exactly what any broker needs. Already our business is benefitting from Open GI and so are our clients, – which is very important to us.”

Mark Brown, Managing Director at JB Brokers Ltd

“We are delighted to be supporting Mark, Matt and their teams. This year has been particularly challenging for the insurance industry. At OGI our clear purpose is to partner with brokers and to provide modern, agile solutions that help them seek out the opportunities for transformational growth. As we look out to a post-Covid world, we are continuing to innovate our products and solutions to ensure our partners are at the vanguard of this unprecedented change.”
