Paul Templar, chief executive of Vipr Solutions, reveals why his firm should win the  Excellence in Technology - Service Provider accolade at the 2022 Insurance Times Awards

Explain briefly about your entry in the Excellence in Technology - Service Provider category.

We have established the leading software as a service technology for the delegated authority insurance market. Our 13-year-old brand has been tried and tested by some of the worlds leading insurance brands globally and we continue to grow into new markets.

The challenge in delegated authority is that companies are managing their user experience data, but once they have the data formalised, they don’t do anything with the insights to improve loss ratios, or make better underwriting and risk decisions.

This is what we are currently solving for clients, underwriters and risk managers.

We believe that there is no other brand in the market that offers what we can.

What would winning this award mean to you and your firm?

Our company has the expertise and flexibility to service some of the smallest MGAs and brokers as well as some of the largest reinsurers in the world.

We truly would be delighted and honoured to receive this award.
