Berkshire Hathaway GUARD Insurance Companies Expands Connectivity with Ivans for Workers’ Compensation Business

June 16, 2022

GUARD is now accepting digital quotes from agents using Ivans’ partner systems including Applied Epic

UNIVERSITY PARK, Ill. – June 16, 2022 – Ivans today announced that Berkshire Hathaway GUARD Insurance Companies has expanded its relationship to extend Workers’ Compensation lines connectivity via the Ivans Distribution Platform. Connecting to the platform creates a single submissions interface for quote data collection via insurtechs and agency management systems.

“We are happy to work with Ivans on an API for Workers’ Compensation connecting to various agents for real-time quoting,” said Dave Simmons, Senior Vice President of Sales at Berkshire Hathaway GUARD Insurance Companies.

Ivans Distribution Platform improves the entire commercial lines policy lifecycle. Unlike point solutions available in the market, the Ivans solution supports both straight-through processing as well as more complex risks that require an underwriter’s attention.

“True industry connectivity has been held back by the need for carriers and MGAs to individually connect to each insurtech and agency management system partner,” said Reid Holzworth, chief executive officer, Ivans. “The Ivans Distribution Platform provides the one-to-many connection that carriers require to connect to thousands of agents on various platforms, making work easier between the carrier and agents and creating opportunities for all to win more business.”
