…on time and on budget…
Starr Underwriting Agents Ltd, a member of Starr Companies, has just gone live on its new Eclipse Underwriting system. The system, which was delivered on time and on budget, replaces the firm’s heritage platform. It now handles all of the firm’s Lloyd’s, companies and non-bureau London business.
Steve Blakey, Chief Executive Officer at Starr Underwriting Agents Ltd, says: “Going live on target has allowed us to modernise swiftly and effectively so we can do better business. To achieve this we’ve worked closely with Sequel to rationalise our processes to make them more powerful and effective.”
Michael Graham, Sales and Marketing Director at Sequel says: “Starr Underwriting Agents Ltd are sending a strong message to the market about just what a forward thinking underwriter can achieve with the right kind of software over a very short period. Sequel have worked in partnership with the Starr team to ensure that the whole process was a seamless experience.
“Delivering successfully on time and on budget is what Sequel do. While being on time and on budget for modernisation programmes in insurance should be the norm, sadly often it is not,” Graham concludes.
London based Starr Underwriting Agents is a member of Starr Companies, a leading insurance and investment organisation with a presence on five continents; through its operating insurance companies, Starr provides property, casualty, and accident & health insurance products as well as a range of specialty coverage including aviation, marine, energy and excess casualty insurance.
