Appalachian Underwriters launches digital platform for SB insurance

Slice Labs and Appalachian Underwriters announced the availability of a small business insurance platform built on Slice’s Insurance Cloud Services platform under Appalachian’s digital brand, AERO Insurance Services.

Appalachian’s customer base of over 100,000 independent agents can now Submit, Quote, Bind, Pay, and Service Small Business accounts, 100% online, in a matter of minutes. Appalachian and Slice will look to expand into other industry segments in the future, including Personal Lines.

“Small business owners understand the importance of comprehensive coverage. Many of today’s insurance offerings are complicated and slow, leaving many small businesses with coverage gaps or with no coverage at all. The launch of the AERO digital platform is another step in our journey to provide a better insurance experience for both agents and customers.” – Will Chambers, Director of Digital Partnerships at Appalachian Underwriters.

“The digital journey is driven by customer centricity, and powered by AI and ML. Allowing agents and customers to leverage readily available data, and innovative technologies to deliver an Amazon-like experience is table stakes in insurance.” – Tim Attia, CEO at Slice.
