Adler Insurance Brokers, a long-term client of Acturis and a specialist in construction risks, property and business insurance, wanted to update their existing Acturis Client Service Portal to allow both potential and existing customers to buy policies online.
In a competitive market, Adler wanted a feature rich, mobile friendly solution to best serve their clients.
Acturis provided Adler with an industry-leading Quote and Buy website, later upgrading and integrating their client service portal functionality into the site to provide maximum benefit to all of their customers.
The new website allowed Adler to provide their clients (both existing and new) with a panel of insurer quotes, integrated payment, claims reporting, online documentation and much more, presented in an Adler branded website incorporating mobile and tablet support as standard.
Acturis and Adler Insurance Brokers worked in partnership to design a web service that allows property owners, landlords and property agents to trade and communicate with us at any time of the day or night. This has led to an improved customer dialogue, increased loyalty and a more informed customer who looks beyond price.
I believe that our partnership with Acturis will continue to bring innovation and efficiency improvements to our business and ultimately make our client’s insurance experience better.
Neil Thomsett, Group Resources Manager of Adler Insurance Brokers Ltd
In early 2015, MS Amlin wanted to expand its product offering in to the SME market, and were looking to take advantage of the growing trend for electronic trading and distribution of these product classes. MS Amlin wanted an industry-leading multi-channel platform to maximise product distribution, without compromising on underwriter flexibility and MS Amlin’s focus on broker service.
MS Amlin and Acturis worked closely together to develop an integrated Commercial Combined etrade package, taking only 5 months from kick-off to go-live. This made use of Acturis’ enhanced referral solution, giving MS Amlin underwriters direct contact with Acturis brokers, allowing them to review and write non-standard business. Building on the successes of this development, further products, Property Owners, Shops and Fleet, have been launched with these also being distributed through the new MS Amlin broker portal, ePlace. MS Amlin have continued to invest in and improve the products to keep pricing and underwriting as accurate as possible.
In September 2007, LV= selected Acturis as its technology partner for its Commercial Lines Broker Division. At the time LV= were starting their Commercial Lines operation and the premium transacted by the division was zero.
Part of the success of the division has been developing a strong partnership with Acturis. This has allowed LV= to exploit new possibilities using e-commerce and allowed them to move aggressively into Commercial Lines. The multi-channel solution consists of the following key areas:
Acturis and LV= have worked in partnership to design a market leading, multi-channel, e-commerce distribution platform for Commercial Lines allowing brokers to choose how and when they wish to trade with LV=. Brokers are able to switch from one channel to another without re-iterating/re-keying, and this can be easily managed at the back end by LV= users. The result of this is high customer satisfaction from a larger proportion of the broker market, as they are not forced to trade via a single channel, as well as an efficient trading model for LV=.
AXA is one of the largest General insurers in the UK. At the end of 2010, as part of their strategic plan, AXA began to accelerate their digital multichannel distribution programme in SME Commercial Lines.
This included the development and hosting of a portfolio of commercial lines etrade products and the delivery of these products:
The pace and digital trajectory AXA set out to achieve, meant that many of the delivery timelines were under 9 months – significantly quicker that previous deliverables.
AXA and Acturis approached the strategy using the Acturis SaaS platform to expedite delivery of the solution using dedicated teams at both AXA and Acturis. The initial solution “AXA Connect” was successfully launched within 4.5 months in February 2012.
A series of further enhancements followed quickly thereafter including:
At all times the team utilised Acturis’ expertise and understanding of the software house market and developed a practical approach aimed at making use of existing infrastructure and functionality and ‘not reinventing the wheel’.
In 2016, Home & Legacy was looking to refresh its existing High Net Worth platform solution for brokers. They wanted a rapid, clean, and streamlined solution to make it easy for users to take advantage of their existing panel of insurers, whilst at the same time expanding the functionality available to brokers.
Home & Legacy and Acturis worked together to design a brand new website solution (Home & Legacy Online) to take advantage of the existing Acturis Connect functionality built into the HNW product. This allowed the website to communicate directly with the underlying rating engine, returning a full panel of quotes in under 2 seconds – a 60% reduction when compared to the existing solution. In addition, Home & Legacy Online also supports multiple payment methods, web chat, claims and policy overview, and Home & Legacy plans to make MTA and Renewal functionality available to brokers later in 2017.
Our new digital platform has taken us to the forefront of high net worth insurance e-trade. Enabling our brokers to experience a quick and easy quote journey, whilst knowing they will receive a quote on at least 96% of risks, is a remarkable achievement
Barry O'Neill, Managing Director of Home & Legacy
In 2006 Acturis and RSA successfully implemented a complete suite of SME products traded both on the Acturis system and through the RSA Online broker web portal. Since then, RSA and Acturis have continuously been improving these products to extend the underwriting footprint, improve pricing and enhance the service offering.
As part of RSA’s successful strategy of implementing deals with individual brokers, RSA needed Acturis to provide a tool which allowed RSA to rapidly implement these deals outside of the core rating algorithm. This tool would allow RSA to make the changes without risk, and without a build and test cycle.
Acturis and RSA worked together to design and implement a tool which allows products to flex in terms of premium, commission and endorsements functionality without the need for any core algorithm changes. The tool is now widely used for the RSA broker base.
Jeff McCracken, Sales and Marketing Director at Acturis said, “Acturis and RSA have built a strong relationship over many years, and together we’ve implemented twelve products across property, liability, motor and speciality lines. We continue to innovate with RSA and the deals tool is a great example of how Acturis technology can enable our customers’ business.”
Being able to quickly efficiently and safely implement deals through the Acturis tool allows RSA to be responsive to our brokers’ needs without risk, meaning we can focus on building our distribution without being limited by release cycles or implementation resource.

Reducing duplication whilst retaining a recognisable brand, focussed on traditional customer service and value, to build a lasting relationship with both customers and business partners was key. Having worked with their previous provider for a number of years Lark sought a partner with a clear vision of the future and a similar ethos, focussed on experience, professionalism and integrity.
Following an extensive dialogue, Acturis worked closely with Lark throughout the tender process to establish the maximum benefits that could be provided to the broker through best use of a broking system whilst establishing that Acturis was the ideal fit for their business. Key to the success of the transition was the extended implementation and roll out process across Lark’s locations to minimise the impact on the day to day operation of the business.
