An Ultimate Victory – Partnering with CVS

In March Ultimate were excited to sign contracts for an exciting new partnership with veterinary group CVS.  Our new offering was launched nationwide on 14 August.

CVS Group Plc is the largest veterinary group in the UK with more than 400 practices, 1000 vets and 1500 vet nurses throughout the UK and the Netherlands.

This contract will see our pet insurance offering become the only insurance product marketed to CVS customers.  With an exciting offer of 4 weeks of free insurance customers can then choose to upgrade afterwards to annual policies.

One of the reasons that CVS were keen to work with us was the fact that we have such a great system in place.  Our platform is built, consistently developed in Portsmouth and is specifically designed for pet insurance.  It’s fully online and includes an easy-to-use customer portal.  Additionally, it generates Management Information data for both the veterinary practice and the customer.

Bringing this project to fruition has been a real team effort.  It’s a hugely exciting distribution channel for the Company, and is a true partnership between Ultimate, Zenith (the Underwriters) and CVS.  As a combined force, we’ll be able to provide the customer with the best available products and competitive prices, all accessible through a fast and simple process.

 Who are CVS?

  • The Healthy Pet Club, which deals in preventative care;
