American Family Insurance, a U.S.-based insurance company in Madison, WI, with over 13,000 employees, recently faced a challenge to standardize numerous internal systems onto one security platform amidst quite a bit of organizational change. The company needed a tool that could manage and track potential risk and impact, which was impossible to accomplish properly with so many applications and technologies in use internally. After thoroughly reviewing many government, risk, and compliance (GRC) solutions, Onspring’s solution was exactly what the company needed and allowed them to quickly and easily implement a full-scale GRC solution to monitor potential risks.

AXIS Launches Environmental and General Liability Coverage for Manufacturers

Axis Launches | January 04, 2023

AXIS Capital Holdings Limited has announced the implementation of a Specialty Package Policy for manufacturers through its Environmental business unit. The SPPm policy protects manufacturers against a wide range of general and environmental liability risks in a single insurance package. Manufacturing, distribution, warehousing, and processing businesses, as well as waste storage, treatment, and disposal facilities, are all covered by SPPm. The new policy is accessible to US-based manufacturing and distribution enterprises with up to $2 billion in revenue. According to AXIS, this new environmental product is just one element of its larger initiative to bring more advanced capabilities and fresh ideas to the niche market. As a result of the complexity of the risks they confront, manufacturers and wholesalers require insurance policies of an equally high level of sophistication. SPPm offers ISO-based CGL, product and product pollution liability, non-owned site pollution liability, transportation pollution, premises pollution liability, employee benefits administration, emergency response expense coverage, and product withdrawal expense. As general liability and environmental risks become more linked, AXIS says it's no longer prudent to examine them separately. With SPPm, the company can provide its partners with an integrated solution to managing complicated risk and coverage in a simple, smooth, and cost-effective way. About AXIS Capital AXIS Capital is a global provider of specialty lines insurance and treaty reinsurance through its operating subsidiaries. As of September 30, 2022, the company held shareholder equity of $4.3 billion with locations in Bermuda, the United States, Europe, Singapore, and Canada. The ratings of 'A+' ('Strong') and 'A' ('Excellent') that have been given to the company's operating subsidiaries by Standard & Poor's and A.M. Best, respectively, reflect the company's excellent financial standing.

LuckyTruck strategizes with Great American Insurance Group to launch fully digital motor truck cargo insurance product

LuckyTruck and Great American Insurance Group | December 02, 2022

LuckyTruck, the tech-enabled retail agent focused exclusively on trucking, announced today it has collaborated with Great American Insurance Group (GAIG) to launch a fully digital Motor Truck Cargo (MTC) product. Over the last decade, the commercial insurance industry, especially trucking insurance, has been slow to adopt digital products. Historically, getting motor truck cargo coverage took a trucker between one to three days. Together, LuckyTruck and Great American Insurance Group will enable truckers to obtain a quote, purchase, and bind a policy in 10 minutes or less. "We are pleased to be working with Great American, Their financial strength, competitive coverages, and focus on providing a great customer experience through innovation aligns with what we do at LuckyTruck." -Julie Zimmer, CEO of LuckyTruck Great American's MTC product is fully digital, eliminating 100+ question applications, back-and-forth phone calls, multiple emails, and manual payment processing. Powered by Ascend's modern payment platform, LuckyTruck allows customers purchasing the GAIG MTC product to pay-in-full or enroll in premium financing instantaneously. After payment, the policy is bound in a matter of microseconds. Instead of sitting on the side of the road waiting days for coverage, truckers can hit the open road in just a few minutes with the coverage they need. Truckers are often on the road during their insurance agent's typical business hours, and in the fast-paced world of trucking every minute counts, We saw an opportunity to connect with our insureds differently, in a way that better meets their needs. Our digital (MTC) product is smart, fast, easy-to-use, and accessible around the clock via the LuckyTruck platform,said Travis Murphy, Assistant Vice President of Business Development, Great American Property & Inland Marine.
