Tunbridge Wells, Kent (PRWEB) August 12, 2009
Towergate Underwriting Group Limited has launched a new website and online quotation service for their Assure UK brand. Developed by a partnership between web design specialists Eonic Limited and insurance software house Applied Industrial Logic Limited, the site utilises the latest software technology to enable the delivery of new insurance products to market quickly and efficiently.
The site content is controlled by EonicWeb4, Eonic's powerful web design and e-commerce suite, which includes full integration with OpenQuote, the open source insurance quotation system created by Applied Industrial Logic. This integration allows any Assure UK insurance product to be configured in OpenQuote, and then made available on the website very rapidly, helping the Assure UK brand to maintain its position as a market leader in providing commercial insurance.
Fiona Kent, Marketing Manager for Towergate Your Insurance Group said, "Eonic and Applied Industrial Logic have enabled us to deliver a high quality solution for the Assure UK brand. The flexibility of both EonicWeb4 and OpenQuote means we can bring new products to market and make changes to existing ones quickly and efficiently, helping us maintain a competitive edge. Because EonicWeb4 offers full integration with OpenQuote, we are now able to offer a fast and efficient service to prospective customers who can visit the site and purchase cover within a few clicks."
The new website and quotation service is not only aimed at providing customers with a better service, but is also designed to allow Towergate to record and review all activity during the quotation process. Moving forward this information will be used to identify where products work well, and where they need tweaking, helping Towergate to remain at the top of a highly competitive market.
OpenQuote is the leading open source insurance solution available, it has been designed to help reduce both the time-to-market and costs of web-enabling insurance products. The software will enable Towergate to efficiently release and maintain products, allowing them to configure risk capture, risk assessment and rating rules, making products available on-line for providing quotations as and when the business requires.
Eonic is one of the UK's leading web design companies, offering a website design service with full OpenQuote integration.

The OpenQuote certifications are designed to maintain consistent, high standards of delivery across all third parties offering OpenQuote services.
