Hub International and Acturis introduce digital platform to provide Canadian small businesses with competitive choices for commercial insurance
HUB’s digital strategy streamlines quote and proposal process to deliver the best, most competitive and multi-carrier options to clients
Chicago, IL (Mar. 29, 2022) – Hub International Limited (HUB), a leading full-service global insurance brokerage and financial services firm, and Acturis, a leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider to the insurance industry, have announced the launch of Digital Choice Platform, a multi-insurance carrier digital platform that provides HUB small business clients in Canada with real-time, competitive and multiple commercial insurance quotes.
“HUB is committed to being an innovative provider of insurance solutions, using digital technology to revolutionize the way we service our clients,” said Tina Osen, President of HUB International Canada. “With the Digital Choice Platform, HUB is bringing leading-edge resources to help our HUB brokers be more efficient and responsive to our client insurance needs and omni-channel service expectations while interacting with small business clients in a more meaningful and transparent way.”
The Digital Choice Platform will quickly provide HUB brokers with quotes from multiple carriers, quote comparisons, digitize client information and underwriting data, and provide real-time updates from carriers on ratings and/or products. Initially, HUB will be focused on leveraging the platform for small businesses in retail, construction and professional services, that make up 40% of the Canadian market for these size organizations. Other industry sectors will be added in 2023.
“It has been an exciting opportunity to work with a forward-thinking broker such as HUB that is truly driven to provide the best experience and solutions to their team and the best options for their clients,” said Greg Toothe, Canadian Leader, Acturis. “HUB has been instrumental in the development of the platform, helping us refine and enhance it to serve other geographies, enabling the Digital Choice Platform to become a Canadian and global industry-leading solution.”
In an ever-changing climate, clients want choice. Today’s announcement continues to demonstrate HUB’s investment in providing comprehensive omni-channel transactional insurance services that are efficient and have even more expansive, competitive offerings and functionality to address clients’ needs. Digital Choice Platform is a fast follow in HUB’s digital acceleration journey with the recent acquisition of Insureon.
