It's our birthday!

Published on 28 Oct 2016

We discovered yesterday that we can celebrate our 10 year anniversary as a software company.

From humble beginnings as DotOn Ltd in October 2006, we have innovated in software that has been "only Inhibited by the human brain"

In 2008 we rebranded as Brokertech, providing "Insurance software you think you'll never find...", but somehow did.

Only two of our current employees were around for those halcyon days of DotOn Ltd, as we have evolved and grown over the decade. We have released 3 full versions of our core SchemesWriter product, and countless other projects and products so far.

That is not to say we are looking only backwards. We have a lot of exciting developments currently in our coding workshop, so here's to the next 10 years of helping brokers and insurers get the best out of their business.

SW 3.20 is ready for testing

Published on 24 Oct 2016

Schemeswriter v3.20 includes bug fixes and new features and has been deployed to the testing environments

Live Chat has been integrated into the back office
You now have the ability to integrate live chat accounts such as LivePerson. A broker can talk directly with an insurer from anywhere associated with a specific scheme (quote, policy and renewal screens). We also plan to expand this into the direct-to-consumer environment in the near future.

Broker renewal declrations
When an upcoming renewal requires a declaration due to missing risk details a broker can now provide this information directly to the insurer via the online system.

Search Improvements
  • User searches can now be filtered by multiple tags, agent operator and date range.
  • Declined quotes are no longer tagged as expired in the search.
  • A user can now view an unlimited amount of search results.

General Improvements
  • The amount of time a quote is guaranteed for can now be configured per quote.
  • A user can now be associated with a department via their profile page.
  • French Tax is now handled for Marine risks.
  • Bulk operations have been removed for broker renewals.

Bug Fixes
  • An issue with the 'Bulk Download' feature on the broker renewal screen is now fixed.

User Logins
  • Brokerbility users that only use SW2 can now login via Connect. In addition to SW3, Brokerbility users now will access the Extranet and SW2 only via Connect.
  • Provision of a Connect administration site.
  • Hardened client to Connect communication security with a new certificate.
  • Improved the user experience for instances of forgotten passwords by e-mailing the address provided rather than only when a specified account does not exist.
  • Allowing the configuration of advanced user settings and token lifespan.
  • Fixed a bug caused by spaces not getting trimmed if entered in e-mail fields in Connect.

SW 2.37 is ready for testing

Published on 24 Oct 2016

Schemeswriter v2.37 is a maintenance release and has been deployed to the testing environments

Report Builder
The reporting builder has been updated to include the product name as well as expanding the financial section to include all available taxes.

General Improvements
  • Security between the Extranet & Connect has also been improved with a new private certificate.

Bug Fixes
  • An issue which intermittently allowed deleted users to log in via Connect has been resolved.

The Brokerbility Extranet has also been updated to take advantage of the Connect security improvements.
