Veterinary buying group and pet insurer Vetsure has announced the launch of its new software as a service (SaaS) Acturis-powered technology platform.
The new platform means practices will be able to tailor policies to suit the individual needs of their customers, including multi-pet cover, and also provides the flexibility to manage their own promotional activity.
Real time access to the system also allows for better management of pet insurance sales.
The project was completed in partnership with Acturis, an award-winning SaaS provider to the insurance industry.
Ashley Gray, managing director of Vetsure said: “After a six-month project we are delighted to launch Vetsure on the Acturis SaaS platform. The sophistication of the platform has enabled us to achieve a number of firsts in the market such as provision for customer tailoring of cover benefits including variable excess and pick and choose policy features, free cover periods and vet portals for looking up policies and submitting sales leads. The impact on our service, retention and operations has been immediate.”
Leading edge platform
Theo Duchen, co-chief executive of Acturis added: “The project, which we completed with the Vetsure team and in conjunction with our Acturis colleagues in Denmark, made great use of our track record in the travel, health and assistance software market where we have a leading global position. We have been able to apply our experience in those areas to pet insurance here in the UK, which we feel can be transformed with better use of technology. Vetsure’s new cloud-based platform is now a leading edge platform, which has already made a significant difference to the Vetsure business.”
