Sequel shortlisted twice at the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2018

Great news – Sequel has been shortlisted for two awards at this year’s European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2018, in the Enterprise Solution of the year category. Celebrating its tenth year, the awards are recognised as the most prestigious IT Channel Awards, designed to distinguish excellence. This is the fourth year in a row Sequel has been nominated.

Sequel has been shortlisted for ‘Enterprise Solution of the Year’ following our work with Starstone. Starstone needed to completely overhaul its ageing legacy systems. So, in 2016 the company called upon Sequel to renew the underwriting systems used across all its operations. By creating a flexible, hugely powerful solution, based on its Eclipse underwriting technology, Sequel brought consistency to data capture, data management and reporting functions for each of the different insurance markets Starstone operates. This solution not only significantly reduced costs, it also allowed Starstone underwriters across the business to take ownership of the processes of capturing data and risk.

Sequel has also received a second nomination in the same category, this time for its work with Agora. Agora needed to implement a complete end to end underwriting system so that it could meet all the technical requirements needed to achieve full regulatory approval from Lloyds. Sequel were approached by Agora in September 2017 and were tasked with having the new system in place by 1st January 2018, a very tight timeframe. Sequel managed to fully integrate the new system ahead of Agora’s deadline, ensuring it met all technical requirements to receive full regulatory sign off from Lloyds -a key milestone for Agora.
