Polaris announces 5th broker system live on imarket!

Polaris is delighted to confirm Bravo Digital Trader has become the fifth broker system to use imarket following its launch to broaden access to products for a number of major insurers including RSA & Zurich for its network members.

Polaris’ Head of imarket, Simon Bloomfield, commented “as an industry-owned organisation, imarket’s purpose over the last 20 years has always been to allow insurers and brokers to trade more effectively.

“The recent launch of Bravo Digital Trader increases Bravo members’ choice on how they digitally trade and compare products from insurers and we’re really proud to have supported such an important launch.”

As insurers typically work to the Polaris Standards, this means an insurer can deploy their product to newer emerging broker systems in a relatively straightforward manner.

Simon added “We are seeing an increased interest from insurers and MGAs in extending their distribution via imarket into new and existing distribution channels and we hope to announce more integrations into imarket in due course.”

Ardonagh Advisory’s Head of Digital Insurer Partnerships, David Haddock, advised “In order to enable us to deliver the innovative Digital Trader product for Bravo Networks members, we needed efficient access to insurer products and imarket allowed us to swiftly gain access to insurer products which plugged straight into the system. This really helps to support our fast-paced delivery programme for both products and insurers.”

Nikki Lidster, Head of SME trading at Zurich, said: “The launch of Digital Trader is a milestone moment within the digital trading industry. This new e-Trade offering is a real game changer and we’re really excited to be part of this development with Bravo. We are also pleased to have enabled Live-Chat on Digital Trader which gives brokers further access to our Underwriters when they need us. We look forward to the further opportunities this will bring to our partnership with Bravo Networks.”

Rob Flynn, RSA’s Commercial Lines Chief Transformation Director added “Using imarket to support this commercial distribution initiative has helped us get product to the market in a speedy and consistent way. We look forward to continuing to work with Bravo to develop their Digital Trader proposition over the coming months”.
