Commenting on the appointment;

Keith Thompson (CEO – Pardus) “Today technology needs to be embedded in the business process.  In the past we suffered from not being able to achieve this. In Markit Systems we selected a partner that not only understood this but were capable of configuring their technology to meet our requirements. We now have everything in a single platform”

Darren Stockman (CUO – Pardus) “ We needed a technology solution which we could not only implement quickly but would also be flexible to our growing business.  From everything we have seen so far we are delighted with both the functionality of Markit Core and the team that have worked with us to deliver a Platform in a very short time.”

Simon Turner (Chairman – Markit Systems) commenting on the appointment.  “It’s always exciting to add a new client to our portfolio. In respect of Pardus we are particularly excited. We know the commercial market Pardus is targeting will benefit from the introduction of our class leading technology. It can play a key role in both securing distribution and improving overall operational efficiency.

Malcolm McLean (CTO – Markit Systems) commenting on the platform already delivered. “We’ve managed to configure a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) which now allows Pardus to both underwrite and administer risks on a single platform. Key benefits being the need not to re-key information, saving time and improving efficiencies”
