Willis Re simplifies insurance processes

International reinsurance broker Willis Re has become the latest business within the Willis Group to complete the implementation of Sequel's Eclipse Broking software.

The new software gives Willis Re, for the first time, one single platform on which to run their reinsurance broking, supporting 500 users based in London, Ipswich and Mumbai.

Sequel's software is scalable and we know that they have the capacity and expertise to satisfy our current and future needs

This brings the number of Willis Group staff using Sequel's platform for their insurance and reinsurance broking to over 2,000 worldwide.

This new development completes the second stage of the Willis Re implementation programme, supported by Sequel's software and professional services.

The third stage of the programme will see Eclipse Broking software used by the North American Willis Re team by the middle of 2013.

Iain Pocock, global COO, Willis Re, said: "We are actively investing in updating, integrating and streamlining our processes and supporting technology to deliver better and faster service to our clients. We chose Sequel to help us because their software and expertise runs insurance broking and reinsurance broking applications on one platform effectively - which is a significant development in the market place.

“It enables alignment of our IT across the direct and reinsurance elements of the group, providing benefits in managing and maintaining our global operation. Sequel's software is scalable and we know that they have the capacity and expertise to satisfy our current and future needs."

Paul Kent, programme director, Willis, added: "Sequel has made the complex straightforward for us so we can concentrate on our clients and our core business without distraction."

"Sequel have the quality people, the right expertise and the powerful software to make reinsurance broking and insurance broking work on one single platform,” said Michael Graham, sales and marketing director of Sequel. “That's a complex task that in-house operations and competitors are struggling to get to grips with.”

Eclipse is a strategic suite of business applications built with 100 per cent Microsoft technology.
