A plan to digitally transform to better serve agency partners

Pekin Insurance experienced difficulty positioning themselves to get in front of new business. “We were not even a player in some of our commercial lines products,” said Subhasis Mukherjee, CIO at Pekin Insurance. The insurer did not see sufficient growth among new business.

Additionally, bottlenecks in existing systems were preventing them from introducing more efficient processes to their agents. “Our current system wasn’t meeting the service and processing expectations of our agents,” said Joe Ricigliano, vice president of Commercial Lines Underwriting at Pekin Insurance. Pekin planned to invest considerable resources into process and communication automation to grow and diversify their business via their independent agency partners. Staff needed technology that would enable them to communicate more efficiently with customers and react to future insurance needs.

IVANS gives us the connectivity and capability to work with a variety of different agency management systems and processes in a very fast and efficient manner.

IVANS enables agency staff to focus on writing new business while information exchange is now automated, putting it in the agent’s management systems as they need it.
