Gore Mutual and Custom Software Enable Real-Time Direct Rating for Brokers in BC

Vancouver, BC (Nov. 15, 2018) – Custom Software Solutions Inc. (CSSI) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Gore Mutual that enables real-time, direct rating ability for brokers in British Columbia. The integration project connects CSSI’s broker management system The Broker’s Workstation (TBW) and vendor rating software IntelliQuote (IQ) with Gore Mutual’s rate tables.

Launched on September 14, the new integration improves efficiencies for brokers obtaining quotes for personal property insurance with better rating accuracy, rate updates in real time, rate maintenance efficiencies and the ability to quickly react to market conditions. Direct insurer-to-broker rating technology continues Gore Mutual’s focus on technological efficiency and commitment to broker distribution.

“Gore Mutual is nearing the end of a transformation and modernization strategy that began in 2014 and has touched every part of our business including sophisticated pricing, core systems, brand and products,” said Sean Christie, Chief Information Officer at Gore Mutual. “As part of the plan we continue to strengthen the capabilities of our broker partners to serve the needs of modern customers through technology solutions and partnerships with companies like CSSI. That’s what we do as a modern mutual company.”

“Direct rating technology offers benefits to the broker, carrier and vendor through a streamlined quoting process,” said Brock Andrew, COO of CSSI. “This real-time integration project with Gore Mutual is already allowing brokers in BC to do business more efficiently and effectively using IntelliQuote.”
