Open GI enters health sector with Sherwood Healthcare

11 April 2012

Sherwood Healthcare has selected Open GI to become their IT partner of choice after searching for a technology provider that could successfully meet their IT requirements to drive increases in profitability.

Based in Essex, Sherwood Healthcare is an established independent insurance intermediary with extensive experience specialising in the healthcare insurance market. Priding itself on the reputation of its services to its customers, Sherwood Healthcare wanted an IT partner that could drive increased profitability by relieving staff of administrative tasks to focus on business development to achieve greater sales.

Following a full IT Review by Open GI, Sherwood Healthcare has implemented a suite of products and solutions comprising the Core Back-Office, Regulation Module and productivity solutions including Open Attach, Word and Print Manager. These integrated solutions will support all of Sherwood’s full insurance lifecycle from quotation through to reporting, with no re-keying into the Back-Office.

John Crisford, Owner, Sherwood Healthcare, said: “We scoured the market for an IT provider that could meet all of our requirements. More importantly, we wanted a partner that could introduce efficiencies in existing workflow practice, deliver a flexible and efficient platform to support our regulatory requirements and support our growth strategies. We were impressed by Open GI’s solution capability and the business benefits they could bring, especially in an ever-changing healthcare environment.”

Simon Hughes, Sales and Marketing Director, Open GI, commented: “We are delighted that a specialist provider of health insurance products has partnered with Open GI. It fully endorses our belief that our range of solutions and products provide the functionality and flexibility that brokers need to stay ahead of the competition.”
