Partnership drives innovation: Introducing the Orange Partner Program
Written By: Amber Blodgett, Marketing Communications Coordinator
On January 29, 2019, we officially announced the launch of the , providing our customers and partners with open access and integration opportunities with Vertafore APIs. This program will also extend to third-party technology providers – encouraging these organizations to develop their own integrations with our agency management systems to achieve the common goal of driving innovation in the insurance industry.
We’re excited to share that industry leaders Agency Revolution, DocuSign and ePayPolicy are just a few of the organizations headlining as charter partners of the program. Our VP of Industry Relations & Partnerships, Doug Mohr, explains the importance of organizational partnerships and the impact the Orange Partner Program will have on those who contribute.
“Partnerships have always been an integral part of the Vertafore community, and the Orange Partner Program was created to help enable new and creative ways for these partners to continue to innovate through technology,” said Mohr. “By uniting our entire product suite under one streamlined partnership program, Orange Partner members will have unparalleled access to the full range of APIs available for each product and the ability to provide their solution across multiple products.”
Partnerships are available to solution providers that currently integrate with one of our P&C agency management systems including QQCatalyst, AMS360 and Sagitta – with additional integrations to come. “We’re truly excited to be a charter member of the Vertafore Orange Partner Program,” said Rick Fox, President of Agency Revolution. “The Program will bring a new level of collaboration between Vertafore and its partners. The open API, in particular, is a big win for both agents and partners, who will benefit from great gains in efficiency.”
One aspect of the Orange Partner Program that we’re particularly excited about is the ability to create a more cohesive environment for collaboration between management system users and vendors to support growth and streamlined efficiency for both parties.
“Agency Revolution is committed to working with the best AMS providers in North America. The new Orange Partner Program shows that Vertafore is making the same commitment to insurance technology companies,” continued Fox. “We provide a marketing technology platform to help independent agents build deeper, more meaningful relationships with their clients and prospects. Our integration with both AMS360 and QQCatalyst will be a huge benefit for Vertafore customers and independent agents everywhere.” And as we like to say here, “Customer success is our success.” Or in other words, a win for our customers (and partners) is a win for us!
One of our most vocal customers is Mike Foy, NetVU Chairman and owner of Foy Insurance. Mike says, “We are excited to see Vertafore launch the Orange Partner Program to provide a more formal relationship with vendors like Agency Revolution, who we use at Foy Insurance for their beneficial integration with AMS360. We also see this as a good thing for the NetVU community to help build a stronger partner ecosystem by expanding our options as independent agents with additional integration to the emerging InsurTech solutions that are hitting the market.”
Mike encourages all customers to watch, listen, and provide input via the NetVU community as this program grows and evolves in 2019. He also reminds you to visit the Exhibitor floor at 2019 Accelerate conference, since many of the Orange Partner Program members are also partnered with NetVU and will be there.
So, which technology partners do you want to see join up with your Vertafore solutions? We can’t wait to hear what you think and, as always, encourage you to utilize MyVertafore and the NetVU community forums to give us your feedback.
