Technology and data


Pioneering latest generation technology sits at the heart of our offering to insurers. Technology that will revolutionise your customer’s experience of dealing with you. Meet Gateway: a single, simple online platform that places control of the entire claims process in your policyholder’s palm.

  • Gateway enables your customer to submit and track their claim online or from their mobile or any other device, from first notification of an incident to end resolution, wherever they are. Leak in the loft? Bumped car? They can ping a notification directly to you, their insurer, getting an instant claim decision, and triggering the process.
  • Gateway seamlessly links your customer to the supply chain repairer network and to their insurer’s own platform. So the entire process becomes visible and transparent to everyone involved. From initial rescue to full restoration of your home or vehicle.
  • The end-to-end process is simplified for everyone involved – streamlining communications, saving time and money and improving your customer’s experience.
