The time has been flying by while we have been working hard on a new WinBEAT4.2 release, completed with the new Background Funding module, as well as WinBEAT Policy Integration with Ebix SmartOffice CRM. In other news, Ebix Australia's COO Simon Agar has been spending a lot of time in London recently, assisting with Ebix market-changing single Exchange Platform implementation. Read below for more on the most recent news and updates from Ebix. 


Ebix Single Insurance Exchange Implementation to Serve the Entire London Market a Sucess

londonEbix has been working with a representative group formed by London's insurance industry's associations over the last year to deploy a single insurance Exchange across the entire London insurance marketplace. The software, which is known as Placing Platform Limited (PPL), facilitates electronic placement of insurance, while capturing and processing risks electronically, for both online or traditional face-to-face transactions. This platform will save significant costs across the sector due to its centralised service, economies of scale, reduction in data entry and acceleration in some functions by up to 30 days. It will also improve the efficiency and attactiveness of the London market thanks to its up-to-date technology.

Ebix CEO Robin Raina said at the time of signing the agreement,

"It is the first time in the world that a single Exchange platform is being deployed to facilitate electronic placement of insurance across a market comprised of all the consituents. That it is done by the largest insurance marketplace in the world - London - makes this a particularly significant event in the global insurance market".

We are pleased to report business placed via the PPL increases steadily and classes continue to be made available on the platform including Marine which was released in March. A total number of 2,376 risks bound, 1,529 quote requests sent and just under 4,000 endorsements agreed, was reported just last month.

Ebix Australia's COO Simon Agar has been spending a lot of time working on the project with frequent visits to London;

"PPL goes from strength to strength, with a publicised market rollout which may increase to over 10,000 users from the current 4,000 before the end of the year. Ebix and the PPL team have worked extremely hard to ensure that the Platform is continuing to meet market requirements, provides scalability and with a future focus on integration", he said.

Ebix are working through a roadmap that will ensure that PPL is the single service for placing business in the London Market, enabling brokers and insurers to quote, negotiate and bind business electronically.
