Open GI has today confirmed that it is the first technology solutions provider live with the new MyLicence initiative. It has also confirmed that Sabre will be the first insurer to offer MyLicence, using Open GI’s technology, early 2015.

MyLicence was launched last month following the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) collaboratively working with the ABI and DVLA to launch a scheme to support the Government’s Insurance Industry Access to Drive Data programme.

Open GI is now live following extensive data hub testing – which is ahead of other companies who are due to be ready in 2015.

“This is a tremendous development for Open GI. We first announced that Open GI was to offer MyLicence in July of this year. Our initial enquiries from insurers wanting to be equipped with the technology was very encouraging.”

Commenting on the announcement, Open GI’s Distribution Director David Kelly stated:

“Fraud is still very topical and MyLicence is a fantastic initiative to help eliminate erroneous policy information and consequently lower motor insurance premiums for consumers. In addition, it will allow the broker community to maintain their competitive edge in a fast-paced premium market.”

Commenting on the announcement, Open GI’s Distribution Director David Kelly stated:

“We’d like to congratulate Open GI on being the first technology solutions provider to go live with the MyLicence service. It’s the first of its kind to use DLNs to connect to DVLA data via the MIB Hub and we’re extremely pleased that sign-up has been so positive at over 80%.”

Neil Drane, MIB Head of Database Services, further commented:

“Open GI are the first of the early adopters and we’re sure that many more will follow. We strongly recommend that all members complete the necessary steps in order to reap the benefits of a quicker, more accurate process, which will also be a key tool in the fight against fraud and a fairer quote and renewal process for motorists.”
