PLEASANTON, CA, July 28, 2020 - New IIABCal Associate Member Talage is thrilled to join the IIABCal community and share what it has built with member agents and brokers. The team at Talage recognizes that the leading agents in California are IIABCal members, and they look forward to partnering and learning from all of the IIABCal agents and brokers.
"Talage is an InsurTech leader building technology and tools designed to power the digital distribution of commercial insurance for agents," said Talage CEO Adam Kiefer. "Our roots in the insurance industry fuel our passion and belief for improving the business and is why we are unyielding in our desire to empower agents and adamant about helping them grow and manage their business better.
"Our customer-first approach combined with our devotion to bring innovation to the commercial insurance industry has helped cement our relationships with top-rated carriers and connect directly to their underwriting systems, fundamentally changing the insurance quoting process," Kiefer said. "Talage is bridging the gap for agents, carriers, and small businesses."
Talage technology empowers agents to sell and service small commercial policies more profitably. "We are unlocking digital distribution for agents by connecting them directly with carriers (such as Liberty Mutual, Chubb, and more), requiring zero technical know-how by the agent," he said. "Wheelhouse, our innovative InsurTech SAAS product, supports agents by allowing business owners to request bindable policy quotes in a self-serve platform, providing better client data to improve renewals, and improving the overall growth and management of an agent’s business."
What are the most important issues facing the industry today?
"The insurance industry is in an exciting time as the incumbents embrace technology and move the entire industry forward," Kiefer said. "A key risk of this new movement is leaving behind the traditional agent and all of the value that they bring to customers. At Talage we are committed to developing technology that allows agents to continue to bring value to customers while performing their jobs more efficiently."
What's the biggest opportunities for independent agents today?
"Traditional insurance agents bring expertise to their customers that cannot be replaced by technology," he said. "However, there are numerous opportunities for agents to leverage technology to improve the efficiency of how they perform the day to day tasks of servicing their accounts. When embracing technology there is an opportunity for agents to increase the profitability of their book."
