Ask Kodiak’s Free Tool for Agents Is Love at First Sight

Published: March 28, 2024


Starting around Valentine’s Day, we kicked off our I Heart Ivans webinar series to show agents our tools worth falling for – including Ask Kodiak®, a FREE market appetite and eligibility tool that allows you to find the best coverage for commercial risks. To me, love at first sight is something that you see or hear and know that’s what you need, and that is what you will find with Ask Kodiak.

What Is Ask Kodiak?

Ask Kodiak is the single source of truth for eligibility and appetite for all of your carriers in one place, with information managed by the carriers, wholesalers, and MGAs listing the appetite. You can filter by state, classification, risk size, and other criteria to instantly see product highlights, underwriting details, and more across your contracted markets and beyond. Whether you know it or not, you may already be indirectly using Ask Kodiak. It is integrated with tools like Tarmika™, Applied Epic®, Ivans®, EZLynx®, Salesforce®, Trusted Choice®, and 70+ more.

What’s In It for You

One of the biggest benefits of using Ask Kodiak as your appetite tool is that you can say goodbye to the paper guides, phone calls, PDFs and other manual methods you currently use to find appetite. With Ask Kodiak, your agency can also:
