Core 15 has arrived

Feedback from our workshops with Irish brokers and the Open GI User Group, is directly behind the latest evolution of the Open GI Core System, Core 15. Fundamental enhancements have been made to our broking system, designed to augment and reaffirm what is already the most powerful Back-Office technology currently available in the marketplace.

Designed to improve the speed and accuracy of broking business processes, the Open GI Core System is the ideal solution for any broker looking to get ahead in both Commercial and Personal Lines trading. With its simplicity and effectiveness, the entire broking process offers total control and automation from managing quotations and converting prospects to live clients through to reconciliation of accounts with insurers.

Our latest innovations to the Open GI Core System, with its combination of speed, efficiency and reliability, ensure the broking experience is improved across a number of business lines. In addition, the system offers a full range of comprehensive accounting and reporting facilities to make managing your business even easier, allowing you to focus on your valued customers.
