ClarionDoor, a Zywave company and provider of insurance distribution solutions, has partnered with Boston-based One80 Intermediaries.
One80 Intermediaries is a privately held insurance wholesale broker and programme manager with offices in both the US and Canada.
ClarionDoor, acquired by Zywave in November 2021, is a provider of “ultramodern” insurance product distribution, standalone rating, comparative rating, and policy management solutions with a multitude of customers live today across the US, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.
According to ClarionDoor, underwriters often find the quoting process on MGA platforms to be cumbersome because they are required to manually enter data on multiple platforms. This also leaves room for human error.
A single platform with a direct connection to a carrier network can reduce data entry requirements and provide indication comparisons in real-time, which improves operational efficiency, and gives underwriters an effective way of comparing carrier pricing.
Martin Burlingame, national contract binding practice leaders at Access One80, said, “Quoting speed, efficiency, and precision are critical to our operations. To better serve our customers, we needed a solution to streamline the quoting process with our carrier partners.
“ClarionDoor’s comparative rating and quoting solution allows brokers to evaluate indications from multiple carriers in real-time, mitigating the need for repetitive data entry, and manual comparisons. The ability to integrate ClarionDoor into our Access One80 portal was a win-win solution for Access One80.”
Patrick McCall, vice president of sales at ClarionDoor, added, “MGAs and specialty lines represent a critical arm of today’s digital insurance industry. As a sales extension platform for carriers, it is critical that brokerages have the proper tools to market and sell their products. What we have done with our comparative rating and quoting solution mitigates the frustration that both brokers and carriers have faced, enabling all parties to focus on marketing, distributing, and sales.”
Beasley General Agency recently implemented a comparative rating solution from ClarionDoor.
