Tasker Insurance Group, a fast-growing, agile and acquisitive insurance intermediary has recently partnered with leading Microsoft Azure service provider Atech to help them build and enhance their technology stack to support future growth plans.  

Tasker Insurance Group (Tasker) is a proudly independent insurance intermediary business with almost 20 years of experience serving communities in both the UK and Ireland. Throughout lockdown, Tasker never stopped focusing on growth and so innovative technologies play a key part in helping the organisation achieve its aspirations.

With the digital acceleration brought on by the pandemic, and the growth aspirations of the organisation, pivoting the technology strategy and moving from co-location to cloud first emerged as the strategy to help the business react fast, enable scalability and agility as well as providing a fit for the data governance requirements of the business.

‘The migration was seamless from beginning to end and Atech has shown their relentless approach to service and reliability. The agility and scalable nature of the Azure platform will give us limitless growth opportunities for our internal Tasker Technology Platform along with desktop deployment using Windows Virtual Desktop,’ Graeme Lalley, Chief Operating Officer, describes the process and thinking behind the process and desired outcomes. ‘Onboarding recently acquired businesses will be an efficient and painless process and there will be no constraints on our ability to scale up,’ he concluded.
