Keystone Set To Launch Agent Portal For BOP

Leading Franchisor of Independent Insurance Agencies Uses Appulate to Make Submitting Business Easier And Faster for Keystone Agents

Northumberland, PA – April 15, 2014 Keystone Insurers Group is getting ready to unveil a state of the art online submission platform for their Business Owners Policy division, Keystone Select.

Beginning this Spring, Keystone agents submitting to Keystone Select will be able to use Appulate to upload submission data and receive a quote. The technology is provided to retail agents at no cost and offers upload of ACORD data from any retail agency management system into Keystone’s agent portal. From there, agents will be able to complete the process by electronically signing the ACORD, uploading loss runs and submitting a request to bind.

 “Our goal has always been to strengthen the independent agency system. To do that, we need to provide our partner agencies the best possible solutions available on the market that will help them become more effective and efficient in their businesses,” said Bob Scullin, Chief Technology Officer of Keystone Insurers Group. “Appulate will offer us an unprecedented level of automation,” stated Scullin.

Once only reserved for large insurance companies, the agent portal is now on the wish lists of many insurance brokers. “It is a competitive advantage,” said Dimitri Nikouline, Chief Architect at Appulate, Inc. “Keystone agencies will be able to submit business and get quotes faster,” commented Nikouline.
