Open GI User Group Marks 30th Year Anniversary


Independent broker body, the Open GI User Group is this year celebrating its 30th anniversary - marking the longest serving independent collective supporting the development of broker software in the UK and Ireland.


Commenting on the anniversary, User Group Acting Chair Jonathan Lyth, JCB Insurance Services said: "This is such a remarkable achievement and one in which I am delighted to be  a part of.  The work we undertake as a forum allows our members to influence changes to the technology provided by Open GI, to ensure that its functionality is robust and efficient and is meeting the needs of all brokers nationwide.


"Whilst we are a separate, independent body, over the last 30 years we have worked closely with Open GI to ensure our members' voices are heard.  Open GI have allowed us to influence the direction in which their solutions have evolved and we feel as though we've made a real difference.  We regularly canvas opinion from members on what they'd like to see from Open GI and it's pleasing to see that more often than not, these opinions are reflected in the solutions that Open GI create.  We feel as though we're helping to shape technologies for both commercial and personal lines".


Sales and Marketing Director, Simon Hughes commented: "Ensuring we have continuous consultation with our brokers is of paramount importance to Open GI. The work undertaken by the User Group is so valuable to help us design and build a range of cutting edge technologies for the broker community.


"Via our quarterly reviews, the impartial perspective that the User Group provides is critical to ensuring that we serve the industry with forward-thinking technologies that reflect the needs of the clients that actively use our solutions."

    • Hi Claire,   We took on INVU back in 2008 and still use it today in its Virtual Cabinet guise. No issues with printing from VC whether that be to network printers or pdf and there are also options to send from VC to email which can be useful.    Overall, we remain very happy with VC so have seen no real advantage to move over to OpenAttach.   One little issue is we never managed to get the automatic indexing / filing of standard OGI/OpenWord letters and emails into VC. We just click a few buttons to file them manually.   Happy to chat through further if you wish - I will be at the Members day this coming Thursday    Darren
    • Hi @Clare Carter   I probably cant advise on day to day use / issues, but may be able to help although not sure of your question   Are you still on Virtual Cabinet (VC) and how are you trying to print on OGI - and what / where from   Also - I'm pretty sure there are minimal issues with transferring to OpenAttach - what are the concerns there?  
    • 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
