MINNEAPOLIS, MINN., April 19, 2018 — TrustedChoice.com and Ask Kodiak today announced a new integration partnership. The collaboration advances new levels of convenience and efficiency for independent agents using TrustedChoice.com’s Advantage digital marketing platform by greatly simplifying the insurance placement process with Ask Kodiak’s real-time insurance marketplace engine.
For independent insurance agents and staff, navigating the fluid commercial lines marketplace is time-consuming and difficult. The new Advantage Market Finder feature integrates Ask Kodiak’s real-time insurance search engine into TrustedChoice.com’s digital marketing platform, which matches the right insurance consumer to the right independent agent and IA company based on underwriting appetite.
“The integration of Ask Kodiak technology via API into our digital marketing platform further builds on the strength of our proprietary consumer-to-agent-to-carrier Appetite Engine,” said Chip Bacciocco, CEO of TrustedChoice.com. “The new Market Finder takes our agent experience to the next level, completing a convenience loop that offers one-click access to real-time appetite data that makes sourcing insurance coverage as fast and simple as online shopping.”
As likeminded insurtech companies, Ask Kodiak and TrustedChoice.com share a mission to transform how independent agents and their insurance company partners work by building innovative technology solutions that empower better ways of serving P&C insurance buyers.
“For Ask Kodiak, the API integration powering TrustedChoice.com’s Market Finder feature harnesses what we do best, helping agents and carriers to write more of the risks they want to write, faster,” said Michael Albert, co-founder of Ask Kodiak. “From day one, we’ve built our business through the eyes of our customers, and we couldn’t be more pleased to be extending the value of our platform to the Trusted Choice agency network.”
