State Auto joins Vertafore

Vertafore announced that State Auto joined its Commercial Submissions™ platform.

Commercial Submissions connects the end-insured, agents and carriers for simplified, real-time quoting on commercial policies. The platform works seamlessly within Vertafore’s agency management systems, allowing agents to significantly reduce the labor-intensive, repetitive and time-consuming process of quoting commercial insurance coverage.

Starting in early 2021, State Auto plans to enable agents to use Commercial Submissions to quote business owners’ policies (BOP) in real-time, followed by commercial auto and workers’ compensation.

“State Auto strongly believes that digital distribution in the independent agent channel is the best path forward for the insurance industry. Vertafore continues to innovate in ways that enable carriers like us to help independent agents grow. Integrating State Auto Connect, our fully digital quote and bind platform, with opportunities like Commercial Submissions brings even greater ease of use to our agents at a time where digital is becoming more and more important in commercial lines.” – State Auto VP of Platform Distribution Brandon Bauer.
