JH Insurance is the third MGA to choose Sequel and follows recent sales to MGAs Pioneer Underwriting (also part of the BMS Group) and Equinox Global.
“Only Sequel could understand what we wanted,” says Phil Hill, Operations Director at BMS Group. “They have the right software, people and approach needed for JH Insurance. They delivered, in the shortest possible time, an easy to use and future-proof system to launch our new product. We’d worked with them before so we knew they’d keep their promises in terms of quality, budget and deadline. They were easy to work with and put in all the resources needed to make this a successful implementation for us.”
“JH Insurance are indicative of the new thinking in insurance,” says Michael Graham, Sales and Marketing Director, Sequel. “They – and ambitious organisations like them – are choosing modern, powerful software to run their new lines of business or revitalise old ones. Up to date and streamlined systems allow them to concentrate on growing their business, working more closely with partners and giving their end customers the best service possible.
“JH Insurance is the third MGA in the last year to choose Sequel – and we’ll shortly be announcing the fourth,” Graham concludes.
