Digital insurer Simply Business partners with Tarmika


Simply Business, a Boston-based digital insurance company focussed on small businesses, will offer general liability insurance on Tarmika, an online quoting platform for independent agents.

Simply Business is aiming to change the way small business owners find business insurance by offering customers tailored insurance coverage online.

The company began in the UK and expanded to the US in 2017, naming Boston home.

Tarmika’s platform streamlines the commercial lines quoting process by providing agents with multiple quotes from several insurers in seconds.

With over 900,000 customers globally, Simply Business positioned itself as a leader in the space through its commitment to a customer-first model, focusing heavily on simplicity, choice and value.

Harborway Insurance™, presented by Simply Business, will participate on Tarmika’s panel of carriers as a general liability provider.

David Summers, Group CEO at Simply Business, said, “We recognize the significant value that agents bring to entrepreneurs. We’re looking forward to expanding our footprint within that distribution channel and working with Tarmika to provide agents with additional digital insurance options and customized solutions for their customers.”

Raghav Tanna, senior vice president, Small Commercial Lines, Applied Systems, added, “When accidents occur, all small businesses need general liability insurance to stay operational and above water. Our decision to offer solutions from Simply Business to our network of independent agents is an important step in strengthening our commitment to provide top-tier technology to our customers.”

In March last year, Simply Business launched tailored insurance solutions for home-based businesses.

The new offering, RLI Home Business Insurance, is underwritten by specialty insurer RLI and covers home and offsite exposures such as general liability, equipment, furniture, fixtures and inventory.

Simply Business said adequate protection for these risks is not typically provided through standard homeowners’ insurance policies.

Simply Business also partnered with Appalachian Underwriters (AUI) to offer general liability solutions.
