Digitally Transforming The Commercial Lines Application Process

Applying technology to commercial lines, from marketing through applications, quotes, underwriting and issue is a major focus of the P&C Insurance today.

Calefy has applied technology to improve the customer-enabled application process. It validates data and creates a request for quote which is reviewed by a broker who submits to selected markets, either by email or through an API.

The front end process is dramatically improved for both customer and broker, saving 40 minutes on average per submission. The MGA or Insurer also benefits from the time saving and improved request process.

Calefy President and Co-founder Simon Hlywa will share:

  • A brief history of Calefy
  • Why the current quoting process is inefficient
  • How Calefy digitizes lead intake
  • How the process saves time and generates cleaner submissions
