Highworth Insurance Live On Transactor

Winchester, UK - 14 February 2013

Transactor Global Solutions Ltd (TGSL) has been selected as the new system provider to specialist Household general insurance intermediary, Highworth Insurance, which focuses on home insurance that would normally fall outside the risk profile of a standard home insurance policy.

Andrew Marchington, Managing Director, Highworth Cover Ltd. said, “We assessed the available software options on the market and felt that TGSL offered the best solution to meet our business needs. The combination of a robust policy administration system that could be easily adapted to our schemes together with the integrated web functionality was very difficult to beat. From initial outline discussions to going live took less than six months.”

Highworth Insurance has launched into the mid/high net worth and non-standard home insurance markets. The company already has a number of specialist schemes, including high value home, landlords, holiday homes and non-standard construction, plus a number of bespoke schemes to quote and buy online. It is based in Poole Dorset and headed by former Castle Cover founder and Managing Director Andrew Marchington, where he is joined by former colleagues, Peter Leppington, who heads finance, and Anthony Burt, who leads operations.

Transactor supplies a hosted solution for all the company’s B2C websites, as well as a full enterprise system for website and call-centre support, including a complete range of back office software supporting a number of specialist schemes and utilizing various applications such as the Transactor MI Cube for reporting. All of the websites were built using TGSL’s Screenbuilder WEBB toolset, which integrates directly into Visual Studio, harnessing the full power of TGSL’s Microsoft architecture and allowing quick and agile deployment.

Ray Vincent, Chief Executive Officer, TGSL confirmed “We were delighted to win this order. Andrew and his team are fully conversant with the technology options that are on offer in the market, having managed other high growth broking businesses in the very recent past. I consider the selection of Transactor for their new business as a very good endorsement of our business and its solutions. We will be doing everything we can to help them grow their new business successfully.”
