State Of The Art Automation Available For Agents Submitting To StateFund First
Agoura Hills, CA – October 8, 2012 Appulate, Inc., the leading provider of submission management system automation for the property and casualty sector of the insurance industry has been selected to provide the agent portal for StateFund First.
StateFund First was selected by the California State Compensation Insurance Fund to broker business for retail agents that do not have a direct active appointment. Beginning November 1, 2012, agents will be able to access the California State Compensation Insurance Fund through a new agent portal within StateFund First’s website. The technology will be provided and maintained by Appulate and will offer agents a platform to streamline the entire submission process.
Included in the technology, retail agents will be able to bridge data directly from their agency management system to complete the submission process without duplicate data entry. Agents will also be able to get real time rating and electronically sign applications.
“We are dedicated to making the submission process as easy as possible for the agents ,” said Riley Binford, Executive Vice President at StateFund First. “We chose to work with Appulate because they have created the best solution available for agents and brokers,” adds Binford.
StateFund First is administrated by Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., one of the world’s largest insurance brokerage and risk management services firms. They were one of only two brokers that were awarded a contract by the California State Compensation Insurance Fund. Appulate was included as part of StateFund First’s bid for the contract.
“This is one of the most exciting opportunities we have been involved with,” said Paul Areida, Appulate’s Chief Executive Officer. “It demonstrates that the industry is rewarding those that are taking advantage of the latest technologies available and moving away from those that are fine with status quo,” notes Areida.
Founded in 2005, Appulate offers an unprecedented level of connectivity to streamline business processes through its innovative abilities to bridge data between insurance systems. The combination of our advanced technology, outstanding level of service and high value proposition have made us one of the fastest gPosting technology companies that serve the insurance industry.
