Intermediary-only insurer MMA is to add new products to Broker Online Services after seeing 80% of its commercial business transacted online less than a year after launch.

MMA will add a motor trade road risks product to the system in the next month. The insurer said it also had a landlords product in development for the system.

The internet-based trading platform already includes shops and offices, surgeries, commercial property owners and small contractors' liability products.

MMA said: "Our strategy is to make transacting all classes of business, including commercial property and packages, more cost effective and straightforward for our intermediaries through the use of electronic methods.

"This extends beyond Broker Online Services to include developments with a number of software houses, particularly our strategic partners.

"It complements our overall strategy to grow the commercial account and recognises that the small SME market is becoming increasingly commoditised."

In November 2003 MMA revealed plans to grow its SME business five-fold by 2007, of which the development and expansion of Broker Online Services was a key part.
