Ivans Marketing Insights keeps getting better, with new insights for personal lines!  Check it out!


Independent agencies are key components of distribution so it’s important to make it easy for them to do business with you. And let’s face it, making calls, asking co-workers and flipping from portal to portal to understand appetite and find products to match your risks isn’t exactly easy. It can also lead to you missing out on business you want to write.

At the same time, you need a way to keep your appetite communication current without having to update a million places. Meet Ask Kodiak™, a search engine for commercial insurance products and the single place for you to manage Commercial Lines appetite and eligibility information. By updating appetite details and communicating them to the broadest network of agencies in real time, you can win more new and renewal business.
