UK: Lloyd’s has joined with brokers Marsh, Cooper Gay and RK Harrison Group to trial the use of iPad in its underwriting room, reports the “Post Online” (’s+to+trial+Ipads+in+underwriting+process).

The trial will get underway any day now and will see the Apple tablets used as an alternative to the traditional underwriting slips. Lloyd’s said that the iPads will effectively be used as an “electronic slip case,” enabling brokers to take documents in to the market electronically, review documents with underwriters and annotate them where required, notes the “Post Online.”
