CINCINNATI, January 21, 2021 – Coterie, the technology company that simplifies buying small business insurance, today announced the launch of digital insurance solutions for independent agents and brokers that will help them streamline processes and better serve small business clients.
Coterie for independent insurance agents and brokers, launching in January 2021, allows agents to digitize their small business insurance operations – saving them valuable time by making applications quick and easy, enabling them to provide exceptional customer service, and providing agencies and brokerages with a 24/7 online presence.
“Coterie is on a mission to make business insurance easy,” said Tim Metzner, Chief Strategy and Growth Officer and Co-Founder of Coterie. “We know that most business insurance still goes through an agent or broker – they are an invaluable resource! We also have heard loud and clear that the process of quoting, binding, and servicing small business insurance policies can be more time consuming than it is profitable. Coterie for agents and brokers simplifies the application process and offers automated underwriting and binding, digitally transforming how agents and brokers operate when servicing their small business clients.”
Coterie’s tech-based business insurance solutions for independent agents and brokers will be launching at the end of the month in select states and will expand to the remaining states throughout 2021. Onboarded agents and brokers will be able to:
- Instantly quote and issue policies or renewals
- Benefit from 100% digital up-front underwriting and an expansive appetite for the small businesses of today
- Gain immediate access to policy documents, insurance certificates, renewals, billing and claims – all in one dashboard
- Leverage Coterie’s technology to enable a 24/7 digital presence
- Start quoting right away using Coterie’s robust agent portal
- Give their policyholders the ability to manage their own certificates or make policy changes
- Access professional claims handling and hands-on customer service support
“Coterie for independent agents and brokers will also be available right within the software tools and workflows that agents leverage today to help manage their business,” said David McFarland, CEO and co-founder of Coterie. “Through our simple, easy to use APIs, we are able to integrate with the leading digital insurance platforms on the market to deliver a simple quoting experience for agents and unlock the power of data to provide instant, bindable quotes.”
