Blue Goose and Appulate Announce Strategic Partnership

Appulate’s Agent Connectivity is now Integrated with the Blue Goose MGA Management System

Westlake Village, CA – November 20, 2018 – Blue Goose, the provider of a leading underwriting workflow and policy administration solution and Appulate, the leading provider of forms parsing and data bridging technology for the P&C industry, announced a strategic partnership.

Blue Goose will offer Appulate Uplink™ as an integrated component of its solution.  The partnership will offer Blue Goose customers best-of-breed connectivity to any agency management system, improving efficiency and quality while reducing agent data entry. In turn, Appulate will gain a distribution partner that offers market-leading solutions for new business and policy administration for MGAs.

“Blue Goose customers will now have an effective and affordable turnkey solution for agent connectivity that will make it easier for them to do business with their agents and brokers,” said Keith Aderhold, President of Blue Goose. “For more than a decade, Appulate has been the best solution available for agent connectivity.”

“Appulate has reserved its partnerships for those organizations that demonstrate strong technical prowess and industry reputation,” said Dimitri Nikouline, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder at Appulate. “Blue Goose has impressed us by offering an integration with Appulate to allow data to move reliably through the submission/quote/bind workflow to minimize costly data entry time,” believes Nikouline.

Appulate is a versatile middleware product that can either bridge data from the agent’s internal management software or is used by a carrier as a back-office forms parsing tool. It allows ACORD data to be more easily moved throughout the submission workflow to improve efficiency and reduce the time associated with completing carrier application forms without the costly transaction fees associated with other solutions. When integrated with Expert Insure, it provides MGAs with a complete insurance distribution system that automates the entire submission workflow from quote generation to binding and issuance.

About Blue Goose

Blue Goose is a next-generation solutions provider for the insurance industry.

Across the industry, insurance companies are seeking ways to streamline every element of their business processes. Competition is fierce and the demand for growth presents what might seem an impossible scenario—to grow profitability and reduce expenses while increasing customer service. That can only be accomplished with the most advanced “best of breed” technology solutions.

The limitations of the old dinosaur legacy systems for underwriting and policy processing have weighed down companies and left them grappling with integrations that are difficult to support. Their only options are expensive customizations that are time-consuming, difficult to implement, and many times do not work.

That is until now.
