Patriot Underwriters Launches Appulate Portal for Workers’ Compensation

Leading Workers’ Comp MGA Uses State-of-the-Art Portal to Make Business Easier for Agents and Brokers

Ft. Lauderdale, FL – March 12, 2015 – Patriot Underwriters (PUI), a division of Patriot National, Inc. (NYSE: PN), has launched Appulate, a state-of-the-art online submission platform.

Agents and brokers doing business with PUI will be able to use Appulate to upload submission data, receive quotes and bind coverage, all in real-time. The technology is provided to PUI agents and brokers at no cost and offers upload of ACORD data from any retail agency management system into PUI’s portal. From there, agents are able to complete the process by electronically signing the ACORD, uploading loss runs and submitting a request to bind.

 “The combination of our service offerings with great technology is what puts PUI on the leading edge for workers’ compensation insurance production,” said Judith Haddad, Chief Information Officer at Patriot National, Inc.  “By working with Appulate, we have created a management system that delivers significant value to our agents and brokers.”

Implementation of Appulate took nearly six months to complete and is the first of its kind in the industry capable of fully automating the submission process for all participants including the insured, agent, broker, PUI and its carrier partners.

“PUI is definitely at the forefront of a new movement to leverage technology for commercial lines submissions,” said Dimitri Nikouline, Co-Founder of Appulate, Inc. “The automated system that we developed with PUI allows for a collaborative submission and underwriting workflow that will benefit all stakeholders.”
