Online broking system 24 7 should have 20 brokers live by Christmas, according to Rarrigini & Rosso chief executive Julie Rodilosso.

Rodilosso added that R&R was developing a human resources package that would be launched by the end of the year. This would accompany the personal lines broking element that was currently being launched.

The system is live with three brokers, including TL Dallas - a large broker headquartered in Bradford.

TL Dallas company secretary Mark Hudson explained that the system had been running since the beginning of August.

"We are delighted with it," he said.

He said that TL Dallas was mainly using the system as a back-office system.

R&R has developed 32 risk registers for brokers to fill in as they quiz clients. These risk registers have been sent to Polaris.
