Articles - Xchanging begins roll-out of free Wi-Fi access in the City


 The first installation at 34 Leadenhall Street will be followed by installations at Lloyd’s and the London Underwriting centre later this year. Further locations will be added during 2013. Xchanging is also considering hosting free Wi-Fi in other UK insurance hub cities. 

 The service supports Xchanging’s growing mobile applications for the insurance market. However the Wi-Fi service is not password protected and can be used by anyone.

 Xchanging made a commitment to providing City Wi-Fi in February this year at the launch of X-presso. This application allows claims handlers and insurers to view and use claims files on the move using their iPads. The app has created a platform for further mobile applications, and new functions and services are due for release also in the second quarter of the year.

 Geoff Kennard, electronic services director at Xchanging , comments “The launch of Wi-Fi in the City is an important step to help the insurance market in modernising its processes, while simultaneously maintaining crucial face-to-face contact. Xchanging is investing in new innovations but it is also investing in existing technologies such as Wi-Fi to help the market make the most of the tools it already has.”
