PIB appoints Ignite Systems as digital partner
4 May 2017 – Ignite Insurance Systems (Ignite), a market-leading insurance software provider, has been appointed by PIB Group (PIB), one of the fastest growing insurance brokers in the UK, as its new broking systems provider for personal lines business. Ignite will provide PIB with a new, consistent digital platform encompassing over 150,000 personal lines policyholders as well as providing future-proofed technology solutions to support PIB’s strategic growth objectives.
PIB will use Ignite’s web-based system to replace a number of existing broker trading platforms. Ignite provides significant operational and underwriting efficiency improvements. Operating on a single shared code base platform, Ignite will enable PIB to launch new products, reach new distribution channels and adapt pricing quickly and efficiently, compared to other platforms.
Toby MacLachlan, Managing Director of Ignite said: “PIB recognises the importance of using a platform that is both flexible and consistent across their different broking businesses. Our systems focus on supporting brokers to optimise their trading opportunities. Flexibility and responsive services have to be at the heart of what trading platforms must now deliver to brokers.”
Tim Philip, Chief Operating Officer of PIB said: “Our organic and selective acquisition growth strategy focuses on delivering enhanced services to our expanding client base. To support this we needed a partner who could provide a scalable and responsive trading platform for high volume personal lines business. Ignite understands this and has delivered a solution that provides us with the competitive advantage we need.
PIB has made a number of recent acquisitions of specialist brokers such as Fish Insurance and Thistle.
John Garrard, Managing Director of Fish said: “We are hugely excited about the possibilities that Ignite offers us a business. This major systems upgrade is a boost for our staff and the ambitious growth plans we’ve not been able to do until now. We look forward to going live with the new system in coming months.”
