We are presenting our go-live solution to the insurance markets with our partner today. This is a very exciting moment for us and it will provide capacity to the platform. Our own appointed representative application is also progressing rapidly, and we hope to complete within 4 weeks. This will allow us to provide insurance products on our own.
This week we have made some significant progress in two areas of selfinsurancemarket.com. Firstly, we have completed a conceptual redesign of the site creating a much cleaner look and feel with clear calls to action. Secondly, we have been doing a lot of work on the customer journeys and how we interlink visitors with our member companies., there is a bit more work to be done on this but all going well we are aiming to get started on the site’s physical rebuild the week after next.
The work is quickly progressing to bring in the ixledger solutions to the platform, with IXT utility being one of the guiding principles.
