One80 forms new partnership

Zywave subsidiary ClarionDoor, a provider of insurance product distribution technology, has announced that a new partnership with Boston-based One80 Intermediaries and their contract binding division at Access One80, a wholesale brokerage, MGA and program manager, is now live on ClarionDoor’s comparative rating and quoting platform.

The quoting process on MGA platforms often requires underwriters to manually enter data on multiple platforms – a process which invites 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 boosts operational efficiency and allows underwriters to effectively compare carrier pricing, ClarionDoor said.

“Quoting speed, efficiency, and precision are critical to our operations,” said Martin Burlingame (pictured), national contract binding practice leader 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 for Access One80.”

“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 levels of service to their customers.”
