Vertafore announces partnership with Keystone Insurers Group

Bothell, WA – October 22, 2014 – Vertafore, the leading provider of software that transforms the business of insurance, today announced they have entered into a preferred partner program with Keystone Insurers Group, providing the group a suite of solutions including agency management systems, ratings systems, and real-time connectivity to industry-leading carriers.

Led by Laura Seltmann, Vertafore established a preferred partner program in early 2014. The program is designed to help provide customized solutions to industry associations and groups throughout the independent insurance channel. Partnering with Keystone allows Vertafore the opportunity to share cutting edge technology with leading groups of independent insurance experts.

“Partnering with Vertafore was a natural move that fit with our partners needs,” said Lea Ann Hawk, chief operating officer at Keystone Insurers Group. “In identifying Vertafore as a Keystone vendor, we are giving our partners more opportunities to increase the value of their businesses.”

“Keystone’s Partner Agencies will have access to best-in-breed insurance technology solutions designed to help them win more new business, improve insured retention ratios, and manage their businesses more efficiently. We think this will drive Agency profitability,” said Mark Sonders, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Vertafore. “As part of Vertafore’s Premier Partner Program, Keystone partner agents and Keystone leadership will have access to specialized and unique resources such as Vertafore’s association and group specialist, Laura Seltmann, and a team of cross-functional professionals to help them through the entire process of discovering, deciding, and implementing which solutions best meet the needs of each individual partner agency.”

“I am thrilled to hear that Keystone has formally partnered Vertafore” said John Hannon of Evarts Tremaine, a partner agency of Keystone Insurers Group. “For independent insurance agents like us, it’s critical that we remain on the cutting edge and Vertafore helps us stay on top of new trends that are so important to running our businesses. The Vertafore team is dedicated to our business goals and initiatives at all levels, and I know the Keystone Partners will benefit greatly from their ability to make a huge difference in the way we do business with our own clients”.

“The insurance industry is changing rapidly, and in order for agencies to build their businesses and enhance the customer experience, the right technology has to be in place,” said Hawk. “As a franchisor of independent insurance agencies, we strive to identify and provide the best products and services to our agency partners that help them write and retain more business.”

The partner agreement is another example of world-class agencies partnering with Vertafore for software related to the insurance industry. Vertafore works with 96 of the top 100 independent agencies and 80% of the industry’s top carriers. In 2013, the company reported over 81 million real-time transactions between carriers and agencies, representing 250% growth from 2011. From real-time connectivity with agencies to insurance-focused workflow, collaboration and compliance, only Vertafore offers agency and carrier-proven technology and market data to drive carrier success.
