Sauce's timeline

We go way back. Here's a little bit of our history.

  • 2008
  • Our Humble Beginings

    Formed in 2008 by two colleagues Mark Faraday and Natalie Tordoff with a vision to solve an operational issue they had identified through their day to day working lives.

    First to market with a fully online, Driveaway Solution, designed to remove the Operational demands the traditional 7 day insurance model had always brought.

  • 2010
  • UK Domination

    Now being used daily by over 1,000 UK dealers the platform was proving to set the benchmark in the Driveaway industry with solutions provided for over 10 of the UK's leading motor manufacturer brands.

  • Industry Recognition

    In partnership with our clients we were nominated for the prestigious Insurance Times E-Business Award, shortlisted to the final five in recognition of the work we had achieved.

  • 2011
  • Continued Focus

    In further recognition of the continuous developments we undertook to improve sales and conversions we were again shortlisted for the prestigious Insurance Times awards, this time achieving Finalist status under the 'E-Business Initiative of the Year' category.

  • 2012
  • Automated Insights

    Working in partnership with Equifax, we developed a new and unique tool under the Risk Monitor brand. Designed specifically to allow our partners to better understand their business this unique tool provided insights in to business and MI trends never before seen. The ability to overlay social and demographic datasets from our partner Equifax offered further added value and helped our partners to target better and more profitable business.

  • 2013
  • Health and Safety Systems

    2013 saw the launch of our very first solution created specifically for the Health and Safety sector. Allowing our clients to move away from the traditional 'Accident Reporting Book' to a much-improved online platform with all the benefits this brings. The ability to deliver timely and immediate MI was key to making this the success it has seen to date.

  • 2014
  • Quote and Buy Solutions

    Following the purchase of our existing client by the iGO4 group we were appointed to develop a complete suite of Quote and Buy platforms for the CDL Strata and CDL Classic environments. With solutions for private car, motorcycle, commercial vehicle and home insurance we delivered for brands as wide and varied as RAC, Santander, first direct, Triumph, Nissan and Honda.

  • 2015
  • Telematics

    Growing on our successes with our mobile responsive Quote and Buy platforms we were appointed by Hastings Smart Miles to develop their new Telematics based customer platform. This move in to the world of Telematics has resulted in us working with other brands and their Hardware and Data Providers including woop, OCTO Telematics and Tom Tom.

  • Sauce is born

    In recognition of our continued growth we wanted a brand that better reflected who we are and what we do. Our continued growth had resulted in us not giving enough time and thought to our own brand identity. We wanted something new and exciting. Made by Sauce is that very vision.

  • 2016
