Bindable Unveils its New Digital Solution - The Agent Wholesale Platform for Insurance Industry

Bindable | November 19, 2020

Bindable, the insurance technology pioneer for elective dissemination, today declared the dispatch of its Agent Wholesale Platform, an advanced software solution that empowers autonomous agents to dispatch their own virtual offices and to flawlessly access and sell insurance items on the web, via telephone, or face to face.

The Agent Wholesale Platform is a white name insurance marketplace that permits agents and transporters to offer auxiliary items, for example, pet, lawful, and home guarantee through a virtual organization without disturbing their present auto and home stream. Locales can be custom  marked and incorporate a changed rendition of Policy Crusher®, Bindable's restrictive SaaS platform and CRM. Utilization of the Agent Wholesale Platform will bring about higher commissions and improved strategically pitching capacities for agents, just as better help for their clients. Strategically pitching auxiliary items is significant for agents since it assists with forestalling center auto and home clients from buying these items somewhere else and possibly exchanging over their auto and home insurance also.

“Our focus has always been to continuously drive innovation in the insurtech industry. We’re proud to have created digital tools so that agents and their carrier partners can achieve more growth and better customer retention through product diversification,” says Bill Suneson, CEO and co-founder of Bindable. “With a virtual agency, they can do just that, and initiate more efficient transactions with consumers online or over the phone.”

Coronavirus has quickened digitization, expecting agents to turn out to be more tech forward in their strategic approaches. As the quantity of purchasers finishing exchanges online versus in-person keeps on climbing, the desire for advanced admittance to insurance contributions has just expanded. Examination from Bindable shows that 93% of free agents were in understanding that with regards to buying insurance items, client desires are evolving. Furthermore, 76% announced that client desires around cycles, for example, cases and installments being robotized has expanded, flagging a more prominent longing for computerized exchanges.

Bindable's Agent Wholesale Platform is right now accessible in every one of the 50 states.

CCC and Verisk Form Strategic Partnership to Bring Innovations to P&C Insurance Claims

Businesswire | May 15, 2023

CCC Intelligent Solutions Inc. (CCC) and Verisk Analytics, Inc. (Verisk) announced today a strategic partnership to leverage the two providers’ market-leading technologies to bring new innovations to P&C insurance claims. CCC is a leading cloud platform for the P&C insurance economy and Verisk is a leading global data analytics and technology provider. The first project announced through the partnership is the planned integration of anti-fraud analytics from Verisk’s claims fraud detection solution with CCC’s claims platform. This integration will help P&C insurers fight the rising threat of fraud in auto physical damage (APD) claims. When fully integrated, insurers will be able to quickly and easily identify potential fraud in real-time within existing CCC-powered workflows. “Working with Verisk we can leverage the strengths of both companies to create new opportunities for our shared customers,” said Marc Fredman, chief strategy officer at CCC. “Mitigating fraud is a priority for insurers. By bringing the right data elements to adjusters’ fingertips, we can help them reduce fraud risk.” The Coalition Against Insurance Fraud estimated the cost of insurance fraud in America at more than $308 billion per year. According to the FBI, fraud costs the average family between $400 and $700 a year in premiums. With the increasing adoption of technology and the emergence of new capabilities like generative AI, the threat of fraud is expected to increase. “With macro-economic pressures like inflation and supply chain constraints, coupled with increasing criminal sophistication, it’s become necessary for insurers to quickly and accurately detect and defend against fraudulent claims,” said Shane Riedman, general manager of anti-fraud solutions at Verisk. “Verisk’s work with CCC will enable insurers to leverage robust analytics and powerful technology to not only reduce fraud loss but also accelerate the resolution of meritorious claims, thus providing better, faster service to policyholders.” This partnership builds upon an existing integration between the two companies. Auto insurers can currently use CCC’s platform to access insights from Verisk’s Liability Navigator to help assess damages in bodily injury claims.
