Joining the digital marketing platform connects the insurtech managing general agent (MGA) with 20,000 Trusted Choice member agencies
MINNEAPOLIS, MINN., Oct. 16, 2018—TrustedChoice.com today announced that Vindati has joined its digital marketing program. This partnership will give Trusted Choice member agencies exposure and access to Vindati, an innovative MGA specifically designed to meet the needs of independent insurance brokers and agents who serve small- to medium-sized businesses. Vindati has a “no upfront appointment process,” which means that all Trusted Choice agents can immediately submit business without waiting for an appointment.
TrustedChoice.com will connect over 200,000 insurance consumers this year with the right independent agent or broker for their personal or commercial insurance needs. The website’s Appetite Engine™ assesses a consumer’s unique insurance needs and recommends an agency based on location and proven expertise, along with marketplace visibility to insurance companies with an appetite for the risk.
Vindati’s participation on the TrustedChoice.com platform places their brand in front of independent insurance brokers and agents when there is a consumer match for contractors equipment, builder’s risk and farm/ranch owners packages, with future expansion to include commercial auto, motor truck cargo and warehouse legal solutions.
A new way to access insurance, Vindati puts the power in the hands of the broker. Vindati provides brokers with instant customizable quotes using leading technology, integrated data and analytic tools. Brokers choose how to connect and place business with Vindati either through simple emailed ACORD forms, Ask Kodiak and digital broker channels, or directly on the Vindati shopping platform. This approach to quickening and simplifying transactions based on how a broker wants to connect and place business means that they can seamlessly connect or instantly customize quoting with technology that delivers policies on demand.
“Vindati was built with brokers’ convenience in mind; we’re 100 percent focused on delivering a great brand experience that’s tailored to how a broker likes to work,” said Hugh Burgess, CEO of Vindati. “Partnering with TrustedChoice.com gives us unparalleled access to this audience, and we’re excited to provide their member network with a seamless, easy to navigate buying experience.”
Commenting on the partnership with Vindati, TrustedChoice.com CEO Chip Bacciocco notes, “As agents and brokers continue to look for efficient ways to work through innovation, we couldn’t be more pleased to welcome future-focused Vindati to our digital platform, an insurtech MGA committed to leading the way with products and services that also move the independent insurance channel forward.”
