Cooper Gay Swett & Crawford (CGSC) has selected Sequel for a five year software and consultancy support program to modernize its London-based insurance business in a bid to deal with regulation, London market initiatives and competitors.

Currently, the company is implementing the Sequel’s Eclipse Broking software, which will go live by the summer of 2012 to replace multiple legacy systems with just one modern broking system.

CGSC group chief information officer Brent Kruger said that the implementation process was the first step in harmonizing its technology across the group.

According to CGSC CEO Shaun Hooper, the strength of the software and Sequel’s track record for delivery will allow the firm to streamline many of its global processes, through an enhanced technology portfolio.

The solution is expected to allow CGSC to manage business data more quickly, effectively and economically benefitting its internal and external stakeholders, Sequel sales and marketing director Michael Graham said.

CGSC offers risk transfer and risk mitigation programs to suit their clients’ needs in addition to delivering solutions to help firms meet global challenges.
