Simon Agency (Hempstead, N.Y.), a national wholesale insurance agency, announced that it has partnered with Semsee, a New York-based provider of a small commercial quoting platform for independent agents. Semsee will offer its online quoting platform to all retail agents and brokers associated with the Simon Agency, with the aim of enabling Simon’s agency partners to quote Business Owners Policies (BOP), Worker’s Comp and other lines more quickly and efficiently. The program is part of the wholesaler’s strategy to streamline business processing, providing new growth opportunities for its distribution partners.
“Today’s small business customers expect a fast, seamless insurance buying experience. As a wholesaler, sitting at the center of the distribution model, our goal is to provide a best in class quoting and submission experience for the agents and brokers we work with,” comments Shawn Diamond, EVP, Simon Agency. “With Semsee’s platform, we’re able to use cutting-edge technology to make the quoting process faster, smarter and more efficient.”
Responding to Market Opportunities Quicker
“We’re excited to work with Simon Agency and its partners enabling them to quote small commercial policies using our platform. With our solution—which uses both API integrations and robotic process automation—agents can quote and evaluate multiple carriers in real-time, responding to market opportunities more quickly,” comments Philip Charles-Pierre, CEO, Semsee. “In addition, Simon Agency benefits from standardizing on a single platform that allows their partner agents to quote with Simon appointed carriers in addition to their own appointed carriers.”
