Insurtech partners with Ivans to provide agency customers greater access to commercial markets
Milwaukee, WI. – August 15, 2023 – Ivans® today announced that InsureZone, a Texas-based insurance services and software developer that specializes in operational throughput enhancement, sales CRM, submission management and policy servicing, has signed an agreement to connect to the Ivans Distribution Platform. The partnership will enable InsureZone to access the largest commercial quoting network, delivering greater efficiencies for agency customers and more coverage options for insureds.
"InsureZone has focused on automating and streamlining the entire policy sales and servicing process, and by connecting with Ivans, we are able to leverage existing carrier integrations and reduce the complexity of getting a policy sold for our agency partners," said John Pergande, chief executive officer, InsureZone. "Our goal is to help our customers grow their agencies in the most efficient manner and the Ivans Distribution Platform will connect us to the carriers needed to make that a reality."
Ivans Distribution Platform improves the commercial lines policy lifecycle. Unlike point solutions available in the market, the Ivans solution supports both straight-through processing as well as more complex risks that require an underwriter’s attention. By using Ask Kodiak to identify market appetite as part of the process, the Ivans solution increases efficiencies and submission volume and can lower declination rates.
"Our mission at Ivans is to connect the independent agency channel to the greatest number of carriers, giving them access to more markets and thus more coverage options for their insureds," said Reid Holzworth, chief executive officer, Ivans. "Our partnership with InsureZone further connects the industry, bridging historical gaps between carriers and agencies and driving success for everyone involved."
