Tell us a little about A-One Insurance Group…

A-One Insurance Group has been running for well over 25 years. There are nine companies within the group and we have well over 150 staff throughout the South coast. We worked with sage 50. I have to say, the pain we went through was horrendous information wasn’t being consolidated. There were replication conflicts. We were literally driving the business blind. And then when COVID hit, and we were going hybrid, nothing worked. 

So, you realised you couldn’t carry on the way you were working; what happened next?

We did a little bit of market research – Xero was too basic for what we needed and the bigger players in the market, NetSuite, Intacct and Dynamics just seemed too complex and too expensive. We were kind of stuck, then literally we just had a recommendation – someone said, “why don’t you try iplicit?”

iplicit was unlike anything we’d seen before and the staff attentively listened to our needs. And the icing on the cake for us was the fact that from the moment we decided to action and proceed to getting people set up, trained, it literally took 15 days!
