Qdos – Winners at the Insurance Times Awards 2015
Wow, we feel great. What a fantastic award we have. Last night saw the Insurance Times Awards for 2015 which was held in London.
Qdos Broker and Underwriting Services Ltd (QBUS) were nominated for two awards, picking up the Schemes Broker of the Year award.
The criteria for submissions were:
Broker Innovation of the Year – judges were looking for initiatives and developments from insurance brokers who had enhanced their operations and/or services, enabled them to deliver value to their clients or partners. We were one of four companies shortlisted for the award.
Schemes Broker of the Year – this category was open to all insurance brokers that had created a new commercial or personal lines scheme in the past 12 months. We were again one of four companies shortlisted. The judges were impressed by the breadth and innovation displayed by our product range, and the number of different trading options we can offer to our brokers: delegated authority, QUBE (online broker transactions), and online retail systems.
Brendan Dawson MD QBUS, who collected the award from Karen Beales (MD of UK General Insurance) and comedian David Walliams said, “It was a great evening, being nominated for Broker Innovation of the Year and winning the Schemes Broker of the Year is a tremendous achievement. It is recognition of the way the business is growing and is now being recognised as a serious player in a very serious market. 2015 has been a fabulous year for Qdos and we know that 2016 will be even better”
2015 has certainly been a good year for awards. Last week QBUS was nominated for the Digital Champion Award at The Growing Business Awards prior to which, in September, QBUS won the Digital Broker of the Year award and was Highly Commended for the Schemes Broker of the Year awards at the prestigious UK Broker Awards 2015 hosted by Insurance Age.
