IVANS Launches New IVANS Partner Program
Program expanded to streamline IVANS Download and IVANS Real-Time solutions implementations to drive end-to-end agency-carrier connectivity
Tampa, FL – February 16, 2016 – IVANS Insurance Solutions, a division of Applied Systems, today announced the new IVANS Partner Program. The IVANS Partner Program brings together leading third-party software providers to collaborate with IVANS to more efficiently and effectively connect and transfer data among carriers, MGAs, and independent insurance agencies.
IVANS currently works with nearly 40 Agency Management System providers and connects more than 450 carriers to more than 29,000 independent insurance agencies for streamlined download and real-time data distribution. The IVANS Partner Program will formalize the partnership among these Agency Management System providers to become IVANS Partners for Agency Solutions. In addition, the new IVANS partner program introduces IVANS Partners for Carrier Solutions, which enables close collaboration between IVANS and Policy Administration System (PAS) providers to develop repeatable implementations for IVANS Download and IVANS Real-Time solutions. The collaboration between IVANS and IVANS Partners for Carrier Solutions aims to significantly reduce the time to implement, test, and deploy interface services for mutual carrier and MGA clients.
As part of the IVANS Partner Program, IVANS Partners for Agency and Carrier Solutions have the opportunity to certify their software solutions as IVANS Ready. Through the IVANS Partner Program and IVANS Ready certification process, IVANS works with third-party solution providers to:
- Increase automation and ease of doing business between agencies and carriers
- Improve time and cost savings for agency-carrier interface technology
- Serve as a single trusted technology partner to solve all carrier-agency interface connectivity needs
"Insurance carriers and MGAs are increasingly evaluating strategies to expand product distribution and capitalize on the value of their independent agency distribution channel," said Bill Tedrick, vice president of IVANS Insurance. "This program aligns well with independent agencies’ demand for robust and broad connectivity solutions. The new IVANS Partner Program makes it easier for carriers, MGAs, and agencies to achieve these goals by reducing the time it takes to implement IVANS solutions through Agency Management Systems and Policy Administration Systems integrations. The program demonstrates IVANS investment to drive end-to-end solutions for a more connected insurance lifecycle."
