Modernizing insurance distribution through partnership


By: James Thom, SVP, Corporate Development & Strategy

We are excited to announce the addition of two new Vertafore Orange Partners whose solutions work with AIM, our market-leading MGA management solution: ClarionDoor and InsCipher. These new partnerships allow for seamless data sharing across solutions, reduce manual work, and accelerate processes across the MGA—which has benefits for the entire distribution channel.

ClarionDoor: A better way to process insurance quotes

ClarionDoor’s (CD) MGA Hub provides an innovative, intelligent platform that enables access to over 25 excess and surplus (E&S) carriers from a single portal. Embedded features like Instant Market Appetite give MGAs an immediate read on carrier market availability. The collective capabilities of AIM and CD MGA Hub enable MGAs to enter submissions once in AIM and leverage the carrier connections in CD MGA Hub for comparative rating and quote binding, reducing quote and submission processing times.

InsCipher: Surplus line taxes made easy

InsCipher combines intuitive software with reliable insurance compliance capabilities to create one-of-a-kind tools for automating and managing surplus lines filing and reporting. With this new integration, AIM users’ policy data will transfer directly into InsCipher’s Connect™ system, simplifying surplus tax line management and reporting to deliver greater efficiency and reduced compliance risk. MGAs can focus on serving their agency and carrier partners instead of worrying about surplus line taxes. Check out to learn more.

Connecting the entire insurance distribution channel

With these new partnerships, we’re not only helping to drive efficiencies for MGAs, but across the entire independent insurance agency channel. Carriers can more conveniently share their appetites; MGAs can instantly compare quotes and easily manage surplus lines taxes; and policies can be bound for agents in a snap. Information can travel through the insurance distribution channel faster than ever, with end-insureds as the ultimate beneficiaries. At Vertafore, we are thrilled to be able to offer the insurance industry stronger, modernized connectivity through our products and invaluable Orange Partners.
