General Insurance technology provider Uinsure has achieved record sales levels and growth during 2018.
Uinsure has appointed six members of staff in recent weeks – including David Smith, formerly of iPipeline, as its first chief innovation officer and Andy Murphy, previously at Paymentshield, as a sales team manager.
Simon Hoang, Lauren Helsby, Michael Bagshaw and Jon Hall have also joined the firm in telephone-based roles to account for the record number of sales.
Simon Taylor, Uinsure’s chief executive officer, said: “I’m absolutely thrilled with the success we’ve achieved over the last year.
“We’ve gone above and beyond our previously held records and to be recognised by HLPartnership with their Best GI Provider award really tops off this fantastic period for us.
“We’re set up perfectly for 2019 and I can’t wait for us to continue this growth into the new year. We have a number of exciting developments and industry firsts to launch, and I’m very confident that we’ll achieve even bigger and better things next year.”
Earlier this year, Uinsure was named as one of the top five fastest growing FinTech firms in the North of England and have recently won HLPartnership’s Best GI Provider award too.
Last month also saw the firm launch ‘Direct Apply’, a development made to their quotation system that allows its advisers to email quotes directly to their clients.
This offers them choice and freedom when it comes to home insurance, whilst giving advisers the ability to earn full commission anytime and anywhere.
