TechCanary and Ask Kodiak Establish Partnership to Bring Commercial Appetite Search to TechCanary Users

TechCanary, a provider of a cloud-based, analytics-driven insurance solution and the #1 insurance solution inside the Salesforce CRM platform, and Ask Kodiak, a software platform which helps agents and brokers easily find coverage for commercial clients through quick market identification, today announced the companies have established a partnership to provide Ask Kodiak capabilities to TechCanary users.


Both Insurtech companies provide tools which help agents and carriers better collaborate, communicate, and do business in the digital world. With the combined solutions, experience, and expertise of the organizations, agents, brokers, and even carriers will be provided a complete solution comprised of a full insurance operations platform, CRM, and quick and easy market identification to find the best available coverage to meet a customer’s insurance needs.


Ask Kodiak offers capabilities which further leverage TechCanary’s platform and the Salesforce ecosystem to help drive increased profitability and efficiency, enabling agents to remain current with insurance company product guidelines and simply match needs to markets for reduced agency costs and increased close rates.


Commenting on the partnership, Allan Egbert, Ask Kodiak co-founder, said, “In the traditional insurance environment, agents waste too much time searching for the best commercial coverage for their customers, and carriers need a better way to share their risk appetite with the agents.  In our ongoing effort to simplify rather than disrupt the traditional inefficient distribution model, we are thrilled to be collaborating with TechCanary to bring Kodiak market identification to the TechCanary sales and service platform.”


Reid Holzworth, TechCanary founder and CEO, added, “There is a lot of like mindedness between our two organizations.  Both were founded with the objective of leveraging technology and the digital world as enablers to make the insurance experience easier and better for all stakeholders from buyers, to agents, brokers and carriers.  We look forward to continuing a close working relationship with the Ask Kodiak team to ensure we maximize the value delivered to our mutual clients.”
