Why Rating, Download, & Zapier "Connectivity" Isn't Enough In Insurance

A Vertafore Podcast

Connection problems...

The independent model couldn’t survive without connectivity. When carriers and agencies must work closely together for the sake of the customer...and do so quickly...the health of our connectivity is unavoidable. When agencies are forced to weaponize speed as a competitive edge in their experience and operations, the quality of connectivity within their tech suites and into partners’ tech must be held to a high standard. Jamie Peers, VP of Business Development at Synatic, walks us through the death and rebirth of connectivity in insurance. You’ll walk away learning:

  • The two fundamental tech “lies” you’re probably telling yourself
  • Not all APIs are equal; how do you know which ones should make the cut?
  • The difference between “Policy Download” and APIs
  • How “tech debt” holds us back from modern connectivity
