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

Redesigned quote buttons and a new feature for agents

We’ve rolled out some anticipated UI changes: redesigned the Upload Quote, Request Quote, and Generate Quote buttons on the RFQ interface and moved them to the Action column.

Previously they were located under markets in the Market name column making the interface look a bit overloaded and odd. Now all the market and quote actions are in one place and feel more put together.  Read more

We’ve finally rolled out Uplink 3.0 — a huge update our team has been tirelessly working on for months.

Uplink is a free tool developed by Appulate that imports data from your AMS or any electronic document into Appulate. It saves a lot of time and simplifies the submission process as it uses ACORD data to manage customer information in Appulate or send it directly to carriers. Read more

Quote cover letter

Sometimes carriers and MGAs need to provide additional information in the proposal to the agency. For this reason, we’ve implemented a new feature to enhance better communication and save time. Carriers and MGAs can now send a quote cover letter to their agencies directly from Appulate.

1. To send a quote cover letter, click Release on the RFQ interface. Read more
