Send, which is a rapidly growing InsurTech software company based in London with global reach, has developed an innovative connected workbench that enables re/insurers and MGAs to automate, streamline and optimise their underwriting operations.
The company offers a composable platform that gives teams everything they need to be more productive, in one place - a single platform for managing new business, renewals and endorsements.
As a result of designing its business model to meet marketplace demands, Send has already expanded significantly, and has plans to increase its global presence through a number of strategic moves over the next few months.
The SaaS platform brings complex data out of silos into one solution, providing a consolidated view throughout the lifecycle. Its automation enables new and mature insurers to eliminate rekeying, improve predictability, and work smarter.
Battheram, who will play a key role in driving the new service rollouts, joins Send founders, Andy Moss, Ben Huckel and Matt McGrillis, as well as non-executive director, Darryl Catts, on the Board.
