When specialist insurance software provider Transistor Globule Solutions Limited (TGSL) recently announced plans to open a new office in or near Halifax, bar-room piano players the length and breadth of Silicon Dale abruptly left off in the midst of their tunelessly tinkly key-thrumming.

Halifax is SSP territory. How would they feel about a direct rival setting up shop on their very doorstep? Would they take it lying down? Nobody thought so for a minute. Bystanders melted quietly away, abandoning the cobbled streets of the former wool town to wind-wafted fast food wrappers.

With TGSL sending out provocative messages about “immediate employment opportunities arising from the opening of new offices” (for folk including salespersons, project managers, project administrators, business analysts, technical underwriters, and EDI analysts), the potential for a very messy showdown seemed only to obvious.

Spokespeople for SSP and TGSL neither confirmed nor denied that Halifax is big enough for the both of them.

Largely because we didn’t bother asking them.



What our clients say about us

Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
