Insurance IT Infrastructure

If you’re starting a new underwriting agency, insurance broker or virtual insurer you may be dismayed at the cost and complexity of the IT Infrastructure that you have to have in place before you can even think about selecting a trading system.

Or perhaps you’ve been trading for a while but a new Trading Platform requires a complete overhaul of your IT infrastructure. Money that you have to spend on top of the cost of the Trading Platform – but without any additional business benefit.

Factor in the additional cost of permanent staff to keep all the technology ticking over and you can start to wonder whether you’ve gone into insurance … or IT.

Fortunately, there is an alternative – hand over the entire problem to a specialist who understands exactly what your needs are and can deliver it on a metered basis.

Paying for only what you use is the beauty of a cloud services company; your IT costs are linear and scale both up and down as your business needs change.

If you are contemplating a new IT infrastructure project then we can propose a fully managed, secure and FCA compliant environment on which to build your business. Leaving you free to focus on the things that matter.
