Digital insurance company Next Insurance has launched a new portal to enable agents to offer instant, tailored policies for more than 1,000 types of businesses.
The new portal, Next for Agents, will aid independent agents to quote and sell general liability, professional liability and commercial auto insurance quickly.
The digital insurance firm says that the new portal is designed to help independent agents sell more policies by receiving immediate decisions on all the quotes.
It will also help agents save time and eliminate the need for extensive paper work with a faster online process.
The company also hopes that the newly launched portal will reduce operating costs and provide affordable and custom insurance coverage for small businesses.
Next Insurance co-founder and CEO Guy Goldstein said: “We recognise that some business owners prefer to work with an agent, so in order to ensure that our product is available to all businesses we launched Next for Agents.
“By providing agents with access to our immediate quote and underwriting decisions, they can quickly provide their clients with affordable and tailored insurance policies suited to their unique business needs.”
The company is also working with BTIS, First Connect Insurance, London Underwriters and other agents.
The portal is being currently used by around 3,000 agents in its beta version since April this year. These agents have reportedly been selling Next Insurance policies each day.
The portal helps these agents sell customised policies for around different types of businesses in the US.
