Simplify small business insurance

IBQ integrates with Coterie to improve agency workflows and simplify small business insurance while expanding opportunities for independent agents with Coterie’s expansive appetite and simplified application. 

Coterie, the technology company that simplifies small business insurance, is pleased to announce a partnership with IBQ, an insurance technology leader in personal and commercial lines comparative rating.

The Coterie and IBQ partnership combine Coterie’s tech-based approach to simplify insurance offerings with IBQ’s cutting-edge technology which enhances the quoting process, simplifying the process for independent insurance agencies.

“With IBQ, Coterie can reach more agents seeking to benefit from technology to modernize the commercial insurance process,” says Ray Lynch, Director of Director of Digital Agency & Broker Distribution. “Our 100% digital upfront underwriting will seamlessly complement IBQ’s digital tools to provide agencies with the easiest small business insurance process around.”

“We are very excited to be offering the Coterie Businessowners and General Liability products on the IBQ comparative rating platform,” says Bruce Hopkins, IBQ Systems Co-Founder. “The Independent agent will appreciate how streamlined Coterie’s quote, bind and issue process is through IBQ’s rating platform. Coterie rates will also be available on the agents direct to consumer channel, which is included with their current IBQ subscription.”
