DAS makes significant investment in E-Trade for brokers
Ahead of BIBA 2018, DAS UK Group has announced a significant investment in its E-Trade capability to support brokers with the sale of commercial legal expenses insurance.
The E-Trade programme, part of an extensive programme of digital transformation across the company, comprises DAS Connect, a brand new quote and buy web portal that will enable brokers to quote, buy, adjust and renew DAS products online.
To help integrate legal expenses insurance more closely with brokers’ other point of sale systems, this capability has been further extended with the launch of the DAS product range onto the SSP platform for the first time and a further investment in the Acturis platform.
To coincide with the June launch DAS has also developed a new suite of DAS commercial products that will be available via DAS Connect, Acturis and SSP, while a new personal product range will be launched later in the year.
The company’s wider programme of digital transformation also includes a brand-new portfolio of corporate websites and a new After The Event (ATE) online portal for the company’s solicitor partners that will enable them to apply for and bind ATE insurance cover more easily than ever before.
DAS will be promoting its new E-Trade capability at BIBA 2018 and will be inviting brokers to register their interest.
James Henderson, Managing Director Insurance UK & Ireland, DAS UK Group, said: “Historically commercial legal expenses insurance has evolved by the inclusion of more and more specialised and complex covers which sound great but have questionable value when you look at their utilisation. I think those days are now over and what brokers are telling us is that they now want something quite different - clear and straightforward products that are easy to explain to their customers; delivered quickly, digitally and integrated into their existing systems with a competitive price. I am delighted we are investing significantly to deliver that for them.”
