David Stewart, CEO at Starr Underwriting Agents Ltd says: "We were looking to modernise with a powerful and highly efficient system that was totally under our control. And we needed it to be secure and compliant – that’s just what we’re getting. We chose Sequel for the quality of their people, the speed and accuracy of their systems and their reputation for on time and to budget delivery."

Michael Graham, Sales and Marketing Director at Sequel says: "Starr Underwriting Agents Ltd will now benefit from having full access to their data running on their own high performance and top of the range system.

"We’re noticing a trend where underwriters with outsourced systems, running on outdated platforms, are actively looking to move on to fully supported modern systems so they can take advantage of the great benefits such a move brings," Graham concludes.
