Rapid Growth in Quote Portal orders for Q3

Growth Arrow

Specialist insurance comparison website technology provider i-Wonder reports its strong growth in Quote Portal orders continued in Q3 2017 with the business attracting five new clients in September alone.

Many household names have already adopted the i-Wonder portal solution across over a dozen different business class deployments, but more recently i-Wonder demonstrated its reach by empowering a new layer of clients including start-ups, existing broker businesses expanding into new lines, and SME’s looking to consolidate an existing market presence by freshening up their IT inventory.

Among the Quote Portal new adopters are Sussex based JMB Group, a General Insurance Broker founded by Joe Manning & John Bryant in 2013; London based Quick Cover, specialists in minicab and taxi insurance, and a trading name of Samuel Gordon Insurance, with over twenty years of experience in the Insurance sector; and Manchester based Insurance Revolution, specialising in Motor Trade, Courier and Taxi.

Ray Vincent, Executive Chairman of i-Wonder said, ‘We are delighted to welcome all five of our new September clients into our world and look forward to seeing our existing clients, as well as a few new faces, in the Ricoh Centre at the Broker Expo on November 19th this year. We’re on stand 90 and we’ll be delighted to talk to you about what we have, and what we’ve got coming in the next few months.’

Joe Manning from JMB said, ‘We are delighted to have appointed i-Wonder to provide their quote comparison portal for our niche commercial motor business for Taxi, Motor Trade and Courier risks. This will enable us to save significant time by avoiding the need to re-key quotations and renewals on to multiple extranet sites by delivering quotes from our panel of insurers via a single-entry process. This will aid us significantly in our ambitious growth plans and ensure that we get the best market rate on each risk whilst clearly demonstrating TCF. We now very much look forward to our portal being built and going live.’

Francisco de Sancha, Business Development Manager, Samuel Gordon Insurance Brokers Ltd said, ‘As a new broker specialising in private hire taxi insurance, i-Wonder have created the perfect software integration solution to provide the Quick Cover sales team with a range of quotes to offer to our clients, and to enable our staff to pull through the data into our Quick Cover back office system once a quote has been accepted. I-Wonder have done a brilliant job writing the software to bring a variety of insurers onto one quotation platform, so that the Quick Cover sales team only have to enter details once.’

Michael Brigden, Head of Insurer Relations and Business Development for Insurance Revolution said, ‘We’re happy to be partnering with i-Wonder. As a broker in the non-standard arena this system is a must. With the implementation of the system we’re hoping to see our growth plans over the coming years really progress. With the strong panel, i-Wonder have put together and the ease of use of the system it will become integral to our business.’

i-Wonder operates in four general insurance market sectors, namely niche partnership services with major UK aggregators (i-PAS), The Quote Portal solution for scheme brokers, owner operated aggregation solutions for panel based scheme brokers, and software house integration for UK standard personal liners with the main four UK aggregators.
