Our industry is transforming. And so are we.  Get Started


Forty years ago, Applied started with humble beginnings – not dissimilar to many great tech startups – in our founder’s basement. We were guided by a belief that the insurance industry was on the cusp of making the next great leap, sparking new growth and ways of doing business.

Our journey has been built on creating and delivering firsts – from the first broker management system to providing market access with the first quoting capabilities, providing you with a single view of your business, and many in between to digitise the roundtrip of insurance for all stakeholders in the ecosystem.

These firsts didn’t happen by accident. They were made possible through the collaboration of thousands of people – from different backgrounds, countries, businesses, and experiences – all anchored by the belief that we can make this great industry better together to uphold its noble mission of safeguarding and protecting what matters most to millions worldwide.

But don't take our word for it. Here's what some of our broker partners had to say about Applied Systems.

“What's great about our relationship with Applied is the strategic partnership. Applied understands our business, and they understand the marketplace. They work closely with us to help deliver our growth strategy, so it’s that real partnership with a laser-like focus on solutions.” – Kelly Ogley, CEO, A-Plan Insurance (first Applied Epic customer in the UK)

“We chose Applied because they are a true business partner who worked with us to create a digital strategy, and we’re confident that Epic will take us into the future and help us meet our ambitious growth goals.” – James Woollam, Managing Director, Hayes Parsons Insurance Brokers
