LONDON, UK, February 1, 2021 – GPM Development, a leading London-based software development and cloud hosting company specialising in insurance intermediary software and related services, has announced its deployment of the ACORD Conductor message orchestration service as part of its collaboration with ACORD, the standards-setting body for the global insurance industry.
GPM is one of the founding members of the ACORD Solutions Group Licensed Integrator Partner (LIP) program. The LIP program now includes over 25 of the core global (Re)Insurance Solution Providers, powering over 95% of the London Market, and a significant proportion of the global market. As part of this program, GPM will be deploying ACORD Conductor, the industry-owned, next-generation global message orchestration service, to enable digital messaging for its broker client base.
GPM will be harnessing ACORD Conductor as a fully integrated message orchestration service for existing London Market message flows, while adopting the pre-packaged roadmap of integration end-points to the emerging placing platforms and new initiatives from the Future at Lloyds, and also future-proofing their brokers with connectivity to the wider International markets.
“As leaders in cloud-based broker insurance software solutions, we know the importance of a strong reputation. We’re proud to be able to expand our partnership with ACORD to offer a best-in-class, reliable and seamlessly integrated solution to further take the risk out of insurance broking and protect profit margins,” said Sharon Stanley, Managing Director of GPM.
ACORD Data Standards are widely used throughout the insurance industry, with ACORD members accounting for half of global gross written premiums. ACORD’s industry-owned Conductor operationalises these Standards to create a comprehensive global messaging and data service which aligns individual messages with industry processes, while centralizing and simplifying workflow. By replacing current manual processes of message exchange for GPM’s brokers, ACORD Conductor will drive significant cost savings, as well as improved data speed, accuracy, and consistency.
“The team at GPM Development Ltd have been leading advocates of ACORD, and the efforts of ACORD Solutions Group to drive process efficiencies through standardised data exchange,” said Chris Newman, Managing Director – Global of ACORD. “We rely on the contributions of Licensed Integrator Partners like GPM to ensure we are delivering the maximum return on investment, and generating the largest impact in connecting the global market. By promoting a ‘common language’ for placing, accounting and claims, ACORD and GPM will continue to drive modernisation and efficiency for the broking community.”
