Appulate And BizAssure Partner To Benefit Retail Agent Community
Leading Technology Companies Focus On Integration And Cross Promotion
Fresno, CA – January 18, 2017 Appulate, Inc., the leading provider of submission and quoting management solutions for the property and casualty sector of the insurance industry, has announced a partnership with independent retail insurance agency sales platform provider, BizAssure. The two companies are creating an integration that will allow agents using Appulate to upload ACORD and other data directly into BizAssure’s Rhapsodic Sales™ platform.
More than 25,000 independent insurance agencies use Appulate ProducerConnect™ to “upload” data from their agency management system to quote the carriers they work with. In addition to carriers, Appulate will now offer agents the ability to also upload this data into BizAssure’s Rhapsodic sales platform, which offers valuable tools to help agents increase their sales and retention ratios.
“Our mission at Appulate is to empower the agent,” explains Jeff Harris, President of Appulate, Inc. “Adding integration to BizAssure opens up the door for agents to take advantage of two best-of-breed solutions,” states Harris.
BizAssure couples sales process workflow technology with a variety of service providers to help agents exclusively serve the needs of their prospects. This helps the insureds to obtain the best coverage at the best price, have access to exclusive services, and save a significant amount of money.
“Adding the convenience of Appulate to our platform will reduce data entry and offer more value to our agency customers,” says Gerald A. Cooper, President and CEO of BizAssure. “We believe the combination of the two products (BizAssure and Appulate), is a must-have for retail agencies that are looking to grow their book of business in 2017.”
Appulate, “Empowering The Agent™” offers an unprecedented level of automation to streamline the submission processes through its innovative abilities to bridge data between insurance systems. Today, Appulate technology is used by more than 25,000 retail agents and has been recognized by key industry groups and analysts for its contribution to time and cost savings. The combination of Appulate’s advanced technology, outstanding level of service, and high value proposition has made them one of the fastest growing technology companies that serves the insurance industry.
