Since our inception in 1999, we’ve developed technology led insurance comparison products and delivered consumer solutions in the FinTech and financial services sector.
From our beginnings as a lean start-up, our early success was specialising in providing life insurance. We’ve evolved over the years and partnered with many UK insurance brands, diversifying into a range of insurance products that now includes travel, pet and group life insurance. We have honed and refined our technology, which has enabled us to keep our staff numbers low whilst processing high volumes of insurance product quotes, applications and sales. Today Legal & General is 100% our parent, however this does not change the culture and passion we bring to projects.
We don’t like to brag but our track record of partnerships with household name comparison brands, insurance providers and SMEs speaks for itself.
We offer a true partnership that delivers more than a piece of software. We’re proud to work alongside our partners and our solution-focused approach delivers commercial models which reward everyone for success. This has been possible not just by building great technology but from understanding that the partners we work with are individual and each have their own bespoke requirements. We take our responsibility to our partners seriously. We’re directly regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, so we understand the complexities and challenges of regulation.
Agility is in our DNA. That’s why our highly skilled cross-functional teams work so successfully and deliver the very best solutions.
By working closely with our partners our agile operating model helps deliver a better product. We assign a project manager, technical lead and knowledgeable and experienced front-end and back-end develops for each project.
Located in the market town of Penrith, we’re lucky enough to sit on the edge of the beautiful Lake District (designated as a World Heritage Site in 2017)
We’ve moved into newly-built offices in November 2017 and are 3 hours from London by train and only a few minutes from the M6.
These are just some of the values that underpin our culture here at theidol.com.
