The product is the first Commercial Combined offering available to Open GI’s commercial brokers, with plans to add further products during 2019 that will strengthen the panel further. Open GI provides distribution to over 1,100 brokers across its commercial lines’ solutions.
The QBE cover is particularly well-suited to a wide spectrum of manufacturing, engineering, wholesale and supply industries. The product offers an extensive range of optional covers, including Buildings, Business Interruption and Liabilities, in addition to the core Contents offering – all in one flexible package.
The policy can be tailored to meet customers’ needs, with the assurance of wide policy cover and generous inner limits for various extensions. Another benefit is the ability to quote property covers in isolation, for example contractors’ premises.
This new addition from QBE comes just a few weeks after the launch of QBE Office insurance on Powerplace.
QBE’s E-trade Development Manager, Corinne Pringle, said:
“QBE is delighted to be the first insurer to offer an e-trade Business Combined product on Open GI’s platforms. Together we are committed to serving brokers more flexibly.”
Open GI’s Chief Sales Officer, David Kelly, added:
“We have been busy working on a Commercial Combined offering for some time with our brokers, and so I am thrilled to welcome the addition of QBE Business Combined to our Powerplace SME and Mobius panel. Product choice, price competitiveness and ease of use are areas Open GI is very much invested in as we continue to enhance brokers satisfaction and trading via our platforms.”
