Retail Agent to MGA/Broker Data Transfer Demonstrations
The General Agent Interface subgroup of the E&S Joint Working Group has been working with vendors on current technologies that transfer data from retail agent systems to MGA/Broker Systems and the subgroup is hosting a series of proof of concept webinar demonstrations.
Four firms (ADTS, Appulate, InsuranceZone, and Vertafore) demonstrated their programs at a company vendor forum in 2009 and are now participating in webinars to allow additional people the chance to see the demonstrations. In addition the subgroup is talking with other firms and additional demonstrations may be added.
ADTS - ADTS is a Dallas based technology company that builds “bridges” for property-casualty agencies and underwriters. A replay of the Aug. 11 webinar showing the technology they offer is available online.
Appulate - Appulate provides bridging technology that allows retail agents to send ACORD, supplemental, loss and other data to carriers, wholesale brokerages, MGA and TPA receivers.
InsuranceZone- InsureZone's mission is to quickly and easily enable financial institutions, web portals, and other businesses to offer insurance services to their customers nationwide.
Vertafore- Vertafore offers a family of connected technology and information solutions for the insurance distribution channel, including TransactNOW, which enables real-time connectivity with agents that are on AMS/Vertafore agency management systems.
