Award recognizes innovative technologies reshaping industries and organizations
Tampa, FL – Feb. 23, 2016 – IVANS Insurance Solutions today announced that IVANS Market Appetite has been recognized by the Business Intelligence Group as a winner in the 2016 BIG Innovation Awards. The annual business awards program recognizes those who have brought new ideas to life and seek to change the way organizations and individuals interact with the world.
"This year we saw new innovations from virtually all industries," said Russ Fordyce, managing director, Business Intelligence Group. "It is clear that the role of technology in improving business results and consumer experiences is accelerating. We are thrilled to be honoring those who are leaders in the business of innovation. This year’s winners are an amazing group of organizations that are laser focused on improving the daily lives of so many."
IVANS Market Appetite is an online search tool integrated into an insurance agent's daily workflow that enables insurance carriers to communicate their appetite when agents begin searching for a market to submit their new and renewal business. Similar to a Google search, IVANS Market Appetite immediately presents the agent with a list of carriers, MGAs, and wholesalers with appetite for the specific risk, reducing dependency on time-consuming, manual steps traditionally used to find markets and enabling agents to present the best options for coverage to their clients. IVANS Market Appetite expands marketing opportunities and directs more in-appetite submissions from agents into a carrier’s pipeline. By providing a simple, automated solution to connect agents and carriers for new business opportunities, IVANS Market Appetite furthers IVANS’ commitment to drive greater efficiency and business value for carriers and agents in the independent agency channel.
For more than 30 years, IVANS has been committed to innovation for the benefit of the insurance industry, and we are pleased to be recognized by the Business Intelligence Group for our innovative new offering, IVANS Market Appetite," said Reid French, chief executive officer, Applied Systems. "Digital technology is transforming the insurance industry, and this recognition further underscores our company’s commitment to enabling individuals around the world to safeguard and protect what matters most through innovative software."

Nominations were then judged by a select group of business leaders and executives who volunteer their time and expertise to score submissions and provide feedback. The 2016 BIG Innovation awards were also awarded to ADP, Citigroup and Epson. For more information about the BIG Innovation awards, visit www.bintelligence.com/big-innovation-awards/.
