ASIA partners with Appulate to offer submission workflow

Associated Specialty Insurance Agency (ASIA) is excited to announce that it now offers access to Workers’ Compensation markets for agents using Appulate.

Appulate offers independent insurance agents technology that allows them to bridge data directly from their management systems to make the submission process to key markets easier. By working with Appulate, ASIA will offer an automated way for agents to submit and quote Workers’ Compensation risks.

Using Appulate, ASIA offers agents a complete point of sale solution that will use ACORD data (supplied by the agent) to rate and quote Workers’ Compensation risks. In some cases, ASIA can even allow agents to bind these risks online without the need to interact with an Underwriter.

To access ASIA, an agent simply needs to have an Appulate account. This is offered free of charge and can be set up within 5 minutes. Once the agent has an account, they will be able to bridge ACORD and other data from their management system to complete the ASIA online application.

“Particularly for smaller Workers’ Comp risks, we are eager to provide as much of a straight-through process as possible,” said Frank Sorochen Jr., President at ASIA. “With Appulate’s automation and support from our carrier partners, this is becoming increasingly feasible,” commented Sorochen.

“Agents are demanding a more real-time submission and quoting process from their markets,” said Jeff Harris, President at Appulate, Inc. “ASIA has been able to create a process that makes them among the most modern and easy paths to submit a Workers’ Comp risk” stated Harris.

About Appulate, Inc.

The digital age is rapidly changing the way agents quote business with their carriers. Long gone is the fax machine – replaced by mobility and algorithms. Today, agents (and the insureds they represent) demand instant gratification. If business can’t be conducted quickly, customers go elsewhere.

Appulate powers the digital transformation of insurance by bringing together the insured, agent, wholesale broker, MGA and carrier on a single “point of sale” platform designed to expedite the rate, quote and even bind process for property and casualty risks.

Carriers, wholesale brokers and MGAs use Appulate to not only digitize their products and programs, but further expose them to the more than 30,000 agencies using Appulate today.
