Willis Group Holdings announced from London a partnership with Sequel Business Solutions Limited, which “has completed a major milestone in its Shaping our Future strategy for profitable growth with the implementation of Sequel’s Eclipse broking software solution to significantly speed up transactional processing.”
Willis noted that more than 1,000 of its Associates worldwide “are now using the application to provide exceptional service to Willis clients. Eclipse is used by the broker for straight-through processing of placements, claims and accounting transactions in the UK and other countries, and continued roll-out to additional business units is planned for 2009.
Willis Group President Grahame Millwater called the platform “an outstanding success,” indicating that it had “already delivered significant and tangible operational efficiencies, together with an impressive management information capability, and our clients are now benefiting from major process improvement efficiencies. The Eclipse application is a cornerstone of our London-based business and positions us well for future developments in London Market Reform.”
Sequel’s CEO David Smith added: “Eclipse delivers to Willis the powerful platform they deserve. Our implementation was all about people. The teams from both companies have worked impressively together and delivered against an aggressive timescale. We are incredibly proud of our achievements so far and we look forward to a successful on-going partnership with Willis.”
