Insurance Brokers

Insurance brokers rely on using technology and innovation to deliver results for their clients.  Operating within a secure infrastructure that mitigates risk and meets with regulations, works hand in hand to deliver a high level of productivity that creates more hours in the day to be client focused. 

Technology opportunities are available to solve the many challenges insurance brokers face, while also enhancing their client experience.  Developing and maintaining a trusted technical partner relationship to review and implement these opportunities is instrumental for brokers to succeed.

The Challenge:

Carroll Holman and the PSC Group businesses rely heavily on a smooth running IT infrastructure and one of the biggest challenges they had was to find a supplier they could trust.  They had a few suppliers before Clear Thinking and the Managing Director told Clear Thinking: 

“I always felt unsure about whether we really had the systems secure and well managed.”

In a time where cyber threat is possibly one of the largest risks to their business, it was more important than ever for them to find a long term partner they believed in.  

As an acquisitive group, Carroll Holman and the PSC Group are always making changes to accommodate new group businesses and they needed a rock solid backbone to do this well, therefore they engaged with Clear Thinking.

“I instantly noticed a significant difference to the way Clear Thinking work. We know Clear Thinking are not about finding ways to sell you product but all about creating the most secure setup they can. I can genuinely say this is the first time we have had a supplier that I feel is truly part of our business.”

Carroll Holman’s Managing Director


The outstanding result with this customer, is to hear that the biggest thing they feel by having Clear Thinking as partners, is trust. 

From the outset the Clear Thinking team were very open and laid out all the facts.  A considerable amount of time was spent reviewing, auditing, fixing, updating and enhancing the infrastructure security, while pointing out solutions to holes they were not aware of.  

This resulted in an improved infrastructure that allowed us to efficiently integrate the businesses they have bought into their group, making that part of their operation seamless.
