Hiscox Real Time Quote Live in Appulate

Chicago, IL – August 5th, 2019 – Appulate today announced that Hiscox, a global specialist insurer, has gone live with a new tool from Appulate that allows MGAs and their agents to obtain quotes for its General Liability program for US small businesses. The program will permit agents to experience real-time quoting of GL risks within Appulate’s solution and give them the opportunity to bind policies through a Hiscox and MGA cobranded portal immediately afterwards.

MGAs using Appulate can bring this automated program to their own agents, as well as tap into the vast network of agencies that use Appulate nationwide. By using Appulate, retail agents will be able to upload ACORD applications and easily complete additional questions in order to receive a real-time quote.
Two MGAs (First Choice Insurance Intermediaries and Hull & Co.) were quick to take advantage of the automated program from Hiscox.

”Hiscox has developed an API that allows our agents  to access Hiscox’s quotes in real-time, close and issue a policy on new sales before their competition” said Lou Lacovelli, President at First Choice Insurance Intermediaries. “Coupled with Hiscox excellent client service, this gives our agents a huge edge in meeting their sales goals each month and makes writing small business customers profitable for the agencies.”

“Hiscox offers a great product at competitive prices,” said Brian DeGraw, Vice President at Hull & Co. “Now that we can offer this product on Appulate, retail agents can take advantage of an automated solution to more quickly and efficiently provide coverage for their small business clients”

Hiscox’s small business General Liability program offers broad coverage for claims of bodily injury, property damage, personal injury, medical expenses and defense costs. The program is available nationally, with the exception of Alaska, and provides insurance for many industries, including artisan contractors, landscaping, janitorial services, retail stores, and most office-related professions.

“Our vision is to place our products in areas where our MGA/wholesale partners’ agents spend most of their time – whether that is a partner portal, carrier portal, or the Appulate platform.” said Will Chambers, Partnership Manager at Hiscox. “With Appulate attracting thousands of agents to their platform, offering our GL product through Appulate will allow our partners to get closer to their current agents and    attract additional clientele as well.”

Chambers added, “We are also very excited to partner with Appulate, which can save agents time during the application process, so they can spend additional energy on the important things: customer relationships and identifying new opportunities.”
