Business insurer QBE has expanded its e-trade offering with three new products designed specifically for SMEs. The Minibus, Office and Tradesman packages are now available on QBE’s FastFlow system, increasing the range of products now available to its 3,500-strong broking community to seven.
Usage of FastFlow by brokers has grown by more than 50% in the last 12 months and to further build on this success, QBE has appointed Corinne Pringle to the newly-created position of E-trade Manager.
Corinne has been with the FastFlow team for two years as a project manager and in her new role, reporting to Dave Greaves, Head of SME, she will be tasked with rolling out an integrated SME e-trading strategy and leading a new e-trade development team.
Minibus insurance on e-trade is a natural progression for QBE which has over 20 years’ experience in the minibus market and insures already thousands of minibuses on UK roads.
Office insurance includes Contents, Business Interruption, Employers’ Liability, Public Liability and Legal Expenses as standard, with other options to suit. Quotes are available for over 400 trades.
Tradesman is a flexible per capita insurance product for traditional trades plus contractors, professionals, administrative and service industries, and can cover firms with a turnover of up to £2.5 million and 25 employees.
Dave Greaves, Head of SME, commented, “The significant increase in brokers using our Fastflow system is a clear indication that we are doing things right. Our approach has always been to help brokers to trade online easily with a team of empowered underwriters on hand to offer additional immediate support where required. This year is about giving brokers even more choice and working with Corrine and the team we plan to introduce yet more products across more platforms”
