Appulate Digitizes Workers’ Compensation Policies with AmTrust
Appulate, a digital technology platform for insurance companies, today announced the company will be working with AmTrust Financial Services, Inc. (“AmTrust”) to allow retail insurance agents and brokers to rate, quote and bind workers’ compensation policies in real-time.
Appulate’s advanced technology paired with AmTrust’s innovative and market leading Digital API, allows agents and brokers to obtain an instant quote. The process begins in the agent or broker’s management system where ACORD data – the industry standard associated with property and casualty insurance – can be uploaded directly from their management system using Appulate’s bridging technology. Through the relationship, the data can now interact with AmTrust’s Application Programming Interface (API) to create a quote for workers’ compensation policies. Provided the agent is satisfied with the quote, they can also bind online to complete the transaction.
This modern workflow increases the speed at which agents working with AmTrust can provide a rate or quote to a current or potential client. Appulate simplifies and streamlines the process, as agents no longer need to email submissions to an underwriter or enter them manually into AmTrust’s agent portal.
“Delivering a real-time experience via API is the future,” said Dimitri Nikouline, Chief Technology Officer at Appulate. “Cutting edge carriers like AmTrust are at the forefront of this new frontier.”
“We are continually looking for ways to ensure a frictionless experience for our wholesale partners and the agents they serve. Appulate’s technology reduces the time it takes to rate, quote and bind policies – saving valuable time for brokers and agents,” said Michael Lebor, Global Head of Digital Innovation at AmTrust Financial.
