RFIB to adopt Whitespace for digital risk placement
RFIB is partnering with Whitespace for a global roll out of its digital contract placement system across RFIB’s technicians, placing brokers, classes of business, and markets in the course of 2019. The adoption of the platform will be a foundational element for RFIB’s digital transformation initiatives which are reinventing the way in which the group works with its clients and markets: streamlining and enabling data flows from front to back office.
Angus Kennedy, Group CIO RFIB, said: “Whitespace gives us a platform to build a fully digital end-to-end broking experience. With contracts in the cloud from the beginning of the placing process we can open our clients up to global capacity with a click. Post-bind we can integrate the data flows into our downstream partners and systems to increase speed while reducing the errors that are inevitable in a process involving many human touchpoints.”
Marcus Broome, Director, Whitespace commented: “We are delighted to be part of RFIB’s digital transformation programme. Whitespace enables market firms to move their business online without compromising the people and business interactions which are central to the market. We look forward to working with RFIB in collaboration with other brokers and carriers using Whitespace and to enabling the downstream efficiencies”.
