Ashbourne Insurance’s journey with SSP
My father-in-law started Ashbourne Insurance from nothing in 1981. After he retired in 2008, along with my wife and brother-in-law, we took over the business. One factor that originally made us decide to partner with SSP was the fact that SSP were and still are the market leader in technology. We had one office running an Open GI system (Misys) and another using SSP. There was no longer the need for two systems so, after a period of due diligence, we chose SSP ElectraM3.
It was the slicker platform and I was concerned that Towergate owned the Open GI system. As SSP brought two environments together, we’ve been able to use the branch system to greater effect. Our GWP has grown to £4.5m, with 18 employees in total. We have now been a client of SSP for 25 years, SSP is the best provider to help us support both our commercial and retail customers – they are better than any other provider.
Additionally, the SSP solution accommodates both personal and commercial lines – we are 40% commercial lines and 60% personal lines now. Our GWP has grown to £4.5m, with 18 employees in total.
