At NIG we strive to make insurance easier for the brokers that work with us. In recent months we have made insurance easier by delivering significant positive changes to our Mini Fleet eProduct. This has involved reductions in rates, referrals, and declines, the addition of more vehicles, and increased product flexibility.

We also appreciate that not all systems work in the same way. In order to maximise quotability and ensure that you get the best possible price for your customers we have developed a handy hints and tips guide to help you trade our Mini Fleet eProduct.

Whether you trade through our own eTrade platform, TheHub, or through Acturis, these guides will make trading our Mini Fleet eProduct even more effortless.

The two ‘User Guide for NIG Mini Fleet’ documents provide responses to frequently asked questions whilst also offering step by step guidance for claims period capture and premium overrides. We believe the Usability Guide should make trading the Mini Fleet eProduct even more effortless for our brokers, regardless of which trading platform you decide to use.
