Direct Line for business launches new product with SSP

30th September 2020

Insurance technology specialist SSP is pleased to announce the launch of a new product with Direct Line for business, one of the UK’s leading commercial insurers.

This news comes as part of Direct Line Group’s five-year contract with SSP; as the insurer launches its second product on the platform, Van, a commercial motor offering, whilst also expanding the small business product to tradespeople. 

SSP Select Insurance as a Service, provides insurers with the tools required to be self-sufficient when it comes to managing their own improvements to their products and documentation, reducing costs and providing insurers with more agility and development capabilities.

Jasvinder Gakhal, Managing Director, Direct Line for business, said: “We delivered the product builds collaboratively using Agile methods in scrum teams. The innovative combination of tools available have allowed us to build our Van product in-house, using the SSP core features, with the product already being expanded on now.”

Steve Lathrope, SSP’s CEO says: “It has been a pleasure working on this project so far, providing Direct Line for business with the technology and support they need to be proactively self-sufficient in many areas. Although SSP is still at hand to assist with the deployment, Direct Line for business have the ability to update its premium rating using the Precision Rating Engine tool and can deploy this directly into production.”
