By drawing upon Aviva’s underwriting expertise in the direct marketplace, SSP users can now access Aviva’s advanced pricing elements, creating a transparent alignment between direct and broker prices.

Following on from the success of Insurecom, SSP is the second software house to integrate with Aviva’s rating engine. Open GI will be the third and is due to go live at the end of April.

The partnership with SSP means brokers will have the opportunity to improve their service to customers, which follows the launch of Personal Best from Aviva, created to allow brokers online access to Aviva’s competitive pricing and special offers via an extranet portal.

Sam Hudson, head of broker personal lines at Aviva, said: “Working with SSP means we can provide a further 600 brokers with the chance to offer customers personal lines products that are more price competitive with the direct insurance marketplace.

“The initiatives we have launched over the last few months, including Personal Best and our work with software houses, have used sophisticated technology to help improve our competitive pricing in personal lines and open up access to our direct offers.

“We’re being told we’ve revolutionised the way personal lines is priced in the broker marketplace, bringing in the most significant change for more than a decade.”
