Santa Barbara, California — October 11, 2022 — ClarionDoor, a Zywave company, and provider of ultramodern insurance product distribution solutions, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Boston-based, One80 Intermediaries (One80) and their contract binding division at Access One80. One80, a wholesale brokerage, managing general agency (MGA), and program manager, is now live on ClarionDoor’s comparative rating and quoting solution.
Underwriters often find the quoting process on MGA platforms to be cumbersome because they are required to manually enter data on multiple platforms—this also leaves room for human error. A single platform with a direct connection to a carrier network can reduce data entry requirements and provide indication comparisons in real-time, which improves operational efficiency, and gives underwriters an effective way of comparing carrier pricing.
“Quoting speed, efficiency, and precision are critical to our operations,” said Martin Burlingame, national contract binding practice leaders at Access One80. “To better serve our customers, we needed a solution to streamline the quoting process with our carrier partners. ClarionDoor’s comparative rating and quoting solution allows brokers to evaluate indications from multiple carriers in real-time, mitigating the need for repetitive data entry, and manual comparisons. The ability to integrate ClarionDoor into our Access One80 portal was a win-win solution for Access One80.”
ClarionDoor’s comparative rating and quoting solution revolutionizes MGA services with speed, efficiency and transparency. Established with the fastest growing excess and surplus (E&S) lines carrier network, ClarionDoor’s solution helps MGAs and carriers expand distribution channels and create business opportunities.
“MGAs and specialty lines represent a critical arm of today’s digital insurance industry,” said Patrick McCall, vice president of sales at ClarionDoor. “As a sales extension platform for carriers, it is critical that brokerages have the proper tools to market and sell their products. What we have done with our comparative rating and quoting solution mitigates the frustration that both brokers and carriers have faced, enabling all parties to focus on marketing, distributing, and sales. We are thrilled to have One80 join the ClarionDoor experience, leveraging our modern technology to bring the highest level of service to their customers.”
