We are pleased to announce that at our AGM on 8th October, 2014, the Prize Draw for a Free Consultancy Day was held and has been won by Mr. Howard Coleman from H.S. Coleman Limited.


Howard Coleman, Managing Director, H.S. Coleman Limited commented: “It was a very nice surprise to hear that we had won the Free Consultancy Day. 


As a small broker I greatly value the work that the User Group conducts on our behalf and I know that a lot of the improvements to the system are as a result of representations made by the User Group to Open GI.  Without this group I am not sure we would have had as many of the enhancements to the system that we have seen over the past few years.


Winning the prize will give us the opportunity to assess what parts of the system we are not using that might, if used, help improve the running of our business.


Please convey my thanks to everybody for the great work they do for the User Group over the course of the year.”

Stuart Richardson, Director, Robert Nott Insurance commented: “As a member of the User Group since its inception in the 1980’s, I am well aware that my company has gained hugely from the input into development of the system by the Group, ensuring that it does what we require it to do, rather than what a ‘techie’ thinks it should.


Please continue to keep up the good work.”

    • Just wondering if any of the current members have previously been using Virtual Cabinet, and which originally was Invu provided by Linden House.   It is only relatively recently that Open GI have come up with Open Attach but there is an issue in transferring data.   If anyone is still using Virtual Cabinet which evolved from Invu and Linden House, could they let me know whether they had any issues with Open GI and printing.    Thanks
    • Hi Andrew   I do have a copy - but you can get them / best to get latest copy from the support site - presumably you have a registered account??   Just go to the link here RMAR Reports and Spreadsheet   Any problems come back and let me know!
    • Hi   I am new to OGi and not sure how the system deals with the FCA required Client Money Calculation. A previous post mentioned a OGI PDF document detailing the reports to get the numbers and apparently there is a spreadsheet to input all the numbers as well.   Is anyone able to forward the PDF and spreadsheet or provide assistance please.   Thanks
    • Hi Carol - good to see you here - there's plenty of people that can help!   This is the only official Open GI User Group Forum although there is a User Group Web Site too at this link   This Forum is fairly active with lots of contributions to questions raised - but of course not everyone uses this everyday - but as an active Forum, you will probably get answers fairly quickly! Post away in the relevant section and I'm sure you will get the help you need.    @Ian_Danby is still active, has access to this Forum and maybe you can contact him for assistance with your queries - he's really good!!   When you need it - here's a link to other resources that others have found really useful Open GI Resource and Info   Keep in touch - we're all here to help   Regards - Mark
    • I have been using Misys & Open GI since 1986 and have been a member of the Open User Group for many years. Is this the current Open GI User Group forum?  Does everyone use it? It would be great to throw some questions out there eg: why are we rebroking all broker direct and midas personal lines renewals every year? How do we update our Level one Client master frame to include the VIP code for vulnerable persons? How do we streamline our renewal letters and new business letters? I remember Ian Danby coming out to put on the Demands & Needs letter which we are still using today! Open GI are brilliant but they always refer you to the user manual which is very confusing! If there is anyone out there who would like to respond that would be great!
