Tampa, FL – Oct. 15, 2018 – IVANS, a division of Applied Systems, today announced that The Main Street America Group selected IVANS Markets to support its growth and distribution strategy. IVANS Markets will enable The Main Street America Group to instantly communicate their latest appetite to both current and prospective agency partners.

“The Main Street America Group offers insurance exclusively through independent agents, so it’s critical for agent-customers to be aware of our appetite when they submit new and renewal business,” said Dan Gaynor, chief underwriting officer, Main Street America Group. “Through IVANS Markets, we can automate our appetite communications to agents, enabling us to respond to more insurance opportunities and drive premium growth.”

IVANS is the insurance industry’s exchange connecting insurers, MGAs, and agencies.
