Websure opens US office


Websure, a software provider to the insurance and reinsurance industry, has opened a new North America operation.

The new office, located in Delaware, has been set up to make trading easier between the UK and US, following its appointment by several new clients in the US.

Andrew Holman, CEO of Websure, commented: “Enhancing our capabilities in the US is central to Websure’s growth strategy and we have been expanding our presence in North America and the Caribbean for some time now.”

Holman added: “Opening the US operation is a natural development now that these clients have reached a critical mass. We have a full-time business development manager operating in the US and we are a regular exhibitor and attendee at conferences throughout the continent.”

“However, we are not stopping here, we are already formulating plans to open a support centre from where we can care for our clients even more effectively.”

The location of the support centre is yet to be confirmed.
