Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire (PRWeb) December 14, 2006 -- Alan & Thomas, the independent Dorset based commercial and personal lines broker, are now able to give instant, online indicative quotes to any prospect at any time of day or night using Quotiva. The risk profile information is collected via their new dedicated Bentley and Rolls Royce insurance website.
Jim Starling, Personal Insurance Executive, Alan & Thomas, explained, "Online quotes are a low risk and convenient way for a prospect to gain access to your product, particularly in this sector where clients aren't shopping during the regular working day. Having Quotiva means that we capture extra business leads that we may have otherwise lost."
The Quotiva Broker System (http://www.quotiva.co.uk) is an online e-trading platform that enables Brokers to provide instant indicative quotes to the public directly from their websites using a limited risk profile. Uniquely, the quote engines are developed using Brokers' own rating structures and can be set up for any niche product, even those not covered previously by traditional providers and systems. For Alan & Thomas, this creates a competitive edge through the effective use of technology:
Said Clive Clifford, Alan & Thomas's Development Director, "We wanted to increase efficiency by providing indicative quotations to our clients and prospects through our website. With Quotiva, we have an online system in place that will increase the potential for growth of this niche offering while providing a platform for achieving this in other areas of our business."
Said Chris Wright, Managing Director of Wonderstore Developments Limited, creators of Quotiva, "We are delighted to be working with an innovative organisation like Alan & Thomas who have taken Quotiva and fully integrated it into their sales cycle for new business development. We are looking forward to working alongside them in this exciting development area over the coming months."
