Novidea: Pioneering Digital Transformation in the Insurance Sector

Established in 2009, Novidea offers a cloud-native, end-to-end platform that delivers real-time insights and smooth workflow management. This platform is designed for brokers, agents, and MGAs to oversee the insurance customer journey comprehensively, from start to finish, ensuring growth throughout the insurance distribution lifecycle on a global scale.

Ben Potts, the UK managing director of Novidea, noted that the company was born out of the necessity for digital transformation in the insurance industry. In his view, the insurance sector has been slow in adopting digital solutions compared to other major industries. Determined to address this gap, Novidea set out to design a state-of-the-art platform to replace antiquated insurance systems. Potts emphasized their ambition to achieve seamless connectivity within organizations, eliminating silos and leveraging data for actionable insights. “Our platform,” he said, “is reshaping how insurance entities function in the digital era.”

Proudly, Potts highlighted Novidea’s rapid growth and their significant accomplishments with major brokers, MGAs, and insurers. He attributed these achievements to the company’s commitment to innovation and its cloud-based, data-driven insurance platform.

Novidea’s unique selling proposition (USP) lies in its distinctiveness as the only worldwide insurance-specific solution built on Salesforce. This platform’s cloud-based, data-centric design revolutionizes the workflow of insurance brokers, agencies, MGAs, and carriers. Moreover, by ensuring seamless integration across the insurance distribution cycle, Novidea transforms essential processes, from policy transactions and claims management to accounting.
