Consumers Save Money and Insurers Get More Business With FMR.ie
Flood Maguire & Robertson Limited (FMR), a leading online insurance broker based in Ireland, chose LANSA over other web application and is pleased with it. This case study will tell the reader why. One can read about how using LANSA made them popular with their clients because it was now possible to compare quotes in whatever insurance they wanted to opt for. The insurance requests for car, house and travel insurance were accepted without any time lag. At the same time, queries posted and the results sent back to the client without any loss of time. FMR used InsureIT, a solution that was developed by MDC. Initially FMR had problems popularizing this concept. The insurance companies shied away because they did not want their rates listed with their competitors. But people began to get interested in this idea. Who can deny the comfort and ease with which they could get a number of quotes from their choice of companies and all done within a matter of moments? Not only that, in the beginning it took almost 24 hours for the client requests to get processed. FMR tried out Java and XML and hired contractors to do it. But it was even slower and that was how they contacted LANSA and decided to try out what they had to offer. As it turned out LANSA had a better integrator tool though it was in its developing stage. They now incorporate the flexibility of LANSA with their InsureIT and the decision opened up to newer and better business opportunities.
