The Management Information (MI) functionality within the PPL platform gives brokers and carriers the ability to download MI data extracts for quotes, firm orders and endorsements, whenever you need it.
PPL offers both classroom-based training at Ebix, Liverpool Street [COVID-19 update: classroom-based courses are currently being held via WebEx] and online training with our eLearning Management System (LMS). The various training approaches enable users to quote, negotiate, bind and endorse business digitally or give professional trainers the tools to train others. Our courses receive excellent feedback in terms of content, training and materials. To see full training details, please click here.
PPL supports and listens to the Market by hosting a range of town halls, open house demonstrations and masterclasses. These informative events look at functionality, showcase new releases and address market feedback while educating practitioners. To sign up to the latest events, please click here.
PPL holds open house demonstrations at Lloyd’s on a bi-weekly basis, welcoming brokers and underwriters who wish to see the PPL Platform for themselves, or practitioners who want to refresh and ask questions in a relaxed, informative environment. We also host broker-only demonstrations at LIIBA. To sign up to a demonstration, please click here.

Support with Lloyd's Mandates
Q2, 2018 saw the first launch of an e-placing mandate for all Lloyd’s managing agents. All in-scope business has to be bound electronically using a “Lloyd’s recognised” platform with pre-set targets for digital adoption.
In Q2 of 2019, Lloyd’s have widened the net in two areas; they have added quoting to the mandate, to be transacted digitally with targets to achieve and secondly, on 1st June 2019 all Lloyd’s brokers have to be connected to a recognised e-placing platform as part of the criteria to be a Lloyd’s registered broker.
You will have access to a number of marketing and communication materials, e.g. high resolution images, pop up banners and email signatures. For more information, please contact PPLEnquiries@placingplatformlimited.com.
