The companies’ partnership aims to address legacy processes in the health and group benefits sector, where accessing carrier products and data efficiently can be especially challenging for insurance agencies. The traditional approach of navigating multiple carrier websites is time-consuming and prone to missed opportunities, according to an AgencyBloc statement. However, the collaboration between Ideon and AgencyBloc solves this challenge by integrating real-time data from Ideon’s carrier network into the AgencyBloc Quote+ platform, the statement says.

“Ideon’s API has proven instrumental in our efforts to bolster the visibility of group benefit options for agencies, while simultaneously broadening distribution channels for carriers,” comments Bob Burns, chief product officer, AgencyBloc. “This innovative partnership has enhanced our approach to connecting agencies with carrier products, facilitating seamless collaboration and overall efficiency in group benefit selection and enrollment.”

AgencyBloc’s Quote+ platform serves over 5,500 insurance agencies with a solution to quote, compare, and enroll group benefit plans for employers. “In an era where employers prioritize affordable yet comprehensive options for their employees, Quote+ leads the way in facilitating these choices,” the AgencyBloc statement says.
