Partnership to enable submission and quoting within the certificate management system
TAMPA, Fla. – October 7, 2021 – IVANS® today announced that Certificial will join the IVANS Distribution Platform to allow agents to submit risk information to insurers and receive quotes directly within the certificate management system. This partnership will enable agents to offer the required coverage to their clients without having to leave the Certificial workflow, expanding upon Certificial’s industry leading coverage verification solution with a frictionless submissions and quoting experience. "Certificial is proud to be partnering with IVANS,” said Peter Teresi, co-founder, Certificial. “Our partnership represents a collective mission to support and modernize our industry. Together, we'll create new opportunities for agents and brokers, while streamlining interactions with carriers." Certificial is used by leading companies to automate the process of ensuring their contractors have and continuously maintain the required insurance coverage. Agencies utilize Certificial to issue coverage information on behalf of their clients, the contractors. Additionally, if the contractor does not have the proper coverage required for the job, the agency will have the ability to offer additional coverage. IVANS Distribution Platform improves the commercial lines policy lifecycle, supporting both straight through processing as well as more complex risks that require an underwriter’s attention. The platform also identifies market appetite as part of the process to increase efficiencies and submission volume, and lower declination rates. By supporting a broad set of commercial line types, the platform provides valuable data insights for insurers and MGAs to review submission and quote details against industry benchmarks. “IVANS is on a mission to revolutionize the way agents and insurers exchange information at all points of the distribution channel, and this partnership is another proof point in our efforts to modernize and automate the policy lifecycle from quoting to submission to certificate management,” said Ben Goodman, chief commercial and strategy officer, IVANS Insurance Solutions. “We are excited to welcome Certificial to the IVANS Distribution Platform and join in our efforts to create a more connected insurance ecosystem.”
