Broker moves software to single platform

Cooke & Mason has switched its broking software from Applied and Open GI systems to Acturis.

The Brokerbility member now has 86 users across its Retford, Nottinghamshire, and Lincoln sites on a single system.

Director Adrian Hiley said using Acturis was “not only ahead of the competition now” but that additional developments would help it work smarter in the future.

He added: “Changing from two suppliers to a single platform was a big challenge. Having just gone live on Acturis, the project management, attention to detail, training and support throughout has been second to none. The process ran more smoothly than I expected and I’m excited about the benefits that Acturis will bring to our business.”

Jeff McCracken, Acturis sales and marketing manager, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Cooke & Mason. As well as successfully migrating all their commercial and personal lines business on to our system, we’ll be working closely with them to develop further web-based facilities to introduce a range of services to make it even easier for their clients to do business with them.”
