Adding markets to requests for a quote by default

Have you ever wondered if a list of markets you often submit to can be fixed, so you don’t have to add them each time you make a new submission? Some of you have, that’s why, based on our customers’ feedback, we decided to automate these actions.

We’ve rolled out a new feature allowing you to choose what markets you want to always have on the RFQ interface whenever you create a new request for a quote. Read more

Introducing indications

We started to implement indications in the Appulate system a while ago. Now we’ve added new statuses to help you track the progress and minor tweaks to smooth your user experience.

An indication is a non-binding rate of the estimated premium. If you are satisfied with the indication, you are expected to provide new information on the Q&A tab or market’s website to get a bindable quote. Read more

Quote cover page

We continue to expand the quote functionality. This time we’re implementing a quote cover page for market users. 

A quote cover page is an additional page attached to an uploaded or generated quote. This feature is implemented mainly for MGAs, since they need to provide information that affects the policy premium, such as commissions, or binding requirements not included in the quote. To turn on this feature for your company, please contact us at sales@appulate.com. Read more

Assigning Underwriter & CSR to agencies

Since Underwriters and CSRs typically work with particular agencies, we’ve decided to implement a new feature to reflect your business relations in Appulate.

Previously you had to specify an Underwriter and CSR on the Options tab, in the Policies and Quotes menus for every RFQ or Policy, but it makes a lot more sense to have a separate setting. Plus, you’ll avoid a tedious work assigning them every time you get a new submission.   Read more
