Insurance EDI solutions
Underpinned by the Insurance e-Trading Standards body, Polaris, EDI is a fundamental part of the solutions that the various Software Houses implement between brokers and Insurers and also lies at the core of the plethora of comparative Web sites that exist in the market.
As technology has advanced and demands have changed, organisations have moved away from VAN (Value Added Networks) solutions to a fully managed B2B service. While we are always looking for ways for our customers to move forward to meet their business objectives, Orbit UK never forget those customers that have no desire to change and continue to use the traditional VAN services, such as Information Exchange and Tradanet, to manage their EDI messaging.
Specialised insurance solutions
Orbit UK has over 20 years experience of providing EDI solutions specifically for the insurance industry. While technology has its part to play, we feel that our real value proposition lies in our customer-focused approach and our willingness to go the extra mile to ensure that the customer gets what he needs when he needs it.
Our solutions for insurance companies include:
- Managed Gateway for Insurance - Supports multiple channels to market and adds value to the business process by translating between different message standards and validating transactions as we deliver them
- EDI consolidation - For those customers that wish to maintain control of their message gateways we have a modern equivalent to the VAN by the name of TGMS (Trading Grid Messaging Services), that exceeds the functionality of the traditional VAN and offers reduced costs
- Polaris mapping - Through our partnership with GXS, Orbit UK has access to a vast body of mapping expertise that enables us to develop solutions to meet our customers’ needs quickly and efficiently
- Origo standards - we have gained a clear working understanding of the Origo message standards and are able to provide a flexible service which meets both the needs of our customers and those of their partners, by providing a range of connectivity options along with data mapping, translation and validation services.
Orbit UK believe that we have the solution to meet the need of the Insurance market now and in the future. Our partnerships provide us with the tools and the expertise needed to support the changes in the market as it moves towards a more dynamic environment with the advent of real-time rating and the growth of e-trading in the SME sector.
