About Us

The Surely Group was established in 2013 by an experienced team of entrepreneurs, insurance industry experts and technologists.

With a mission to “power digital insurance”, Surely provides innovative technology solutions to the insurance sector. Our novel platforms enable insurers and brokers to transact online with their customers, whether these are end-consumers, small businesses or intermediaries. Our platform is cloud-based, rapid to configure, works on all devices (web, tablet and mobile), is multi-lingual and multi-currency, and is highly cost-effective in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. The system allows a user to obtain a quote for an insurance product, buy the product and manage the product online, with a strong focus on User Experience throughout.

Our solutions include Quote & Buy (a Direct-to-Customer offering) and Broker Portal (an intermediary e-Trade offering).
