The UK’s leading specialist motorcycle insurance broker Carole Nash has confirmed a new three-year partnership agreement with market-leading software house Open GI.

The deal also supports Carole Nash’s newest brand initiative, Just Motor Insurance. Using Open GI’s eBroker technology, this seamless solution is fully integrated with both the Open GI Back-Office and price comparison sites and is supported by Open GI’s real-time pricing component. In addition, Open GI is supplying a Carole Nash-branded web portal for the delivery of all customer correspondence, both improving service to the end client and assisting the broker in cost reduction.

Whilst Carole Nash is best known for motorcycle insurance, Just Motor Insurance is aimed at the mainstream private car market – but with a particular focus on niche risks. Rated five stars by Defaqto and celebrating 30 years in the industry, Carole Nash is a leading insurance specialist providing cover for over 240,000 motorcycles and scooters, representing 25% of the UK market.

Nick Baker, Products and Marketing Director for Carole Nash, commented:

“The market-leading solutions that Open GI equip us with enables us to increase efficiency and drive forward the company’s development plans. We have been partnering with Open GI for over 20 years and truly value our long-standing working relationship. The initiative with Open GI supports our longer term plans around the development of our strong core bike business and movement into other niche markets.”

Simon Hughes, Sales and Marketing Director, Open GI added:

“We are extremely proud of our association with the Carole Nash brand and business and we’re delighted to see our relationship renewed as they embark upon an exciting period in their growth and evolution.”
