ProWriters Selects IVANS to Grow Commercial Business

June 26, 2019

Cyber specialist selects IVANS to reach the largest network of independent insurance agents

Tampa, FL – June 26, 2019 – IVANS®, a division of Applied Systems®, today announced that ProWriters has selected IVANS Markets™ to support its growth and distribution strategy. Leveraging IVANS Markets, ProWriters will expand their marketing to reach agents looking for cyber products within their agency management systems.

“At ProWriters, we write cyber in all 50 states, including Washington D.C., so we wanted the right partner to lead us to agents and brokers that want multiple cyber quotes in seconds from top carriers with a detailed comparison,” said Brian Thornton, CEO of ProWriters. “With a network of more than 32,000 agents, IVANS will enable us to expand our digital marketing and distribution strategy to make sure that we are reaching the right agents at the moment of opportunity.”

IVANS is the insurance industry’s exchange connecting insurers, MGAs, and agencies. IVANS Markets provides insurers and MGAs an industry-first application to instantly communicate appetite and identify new business opportunities with agencies. Leveraging this digital channel also reduces dependency on time-consuming, manual steps traditionally used to communicate appetite. IVANS Markets directs more in-appetite submissions into your pipeline to drive growth and profitability.

“Providing more specialized coverage often presents insurers with the challenge of not being top of mind with CSRs, account managers and producers for their new and renewal business,” said Brian Wood, vice president of Data Products Group, IVANS Insurance Solutions. “IVANS Markets enables ProWriters to more effectively market their products while meeting agent demand for efficient risk placement.”

Agencies interested in writing cyber policies with ProWriters can now quote multiple top markets side by side in seconds along with a comparison when accessing ProWriters using IVANS Markets. Access IVANS Markets here.
