Appalachian Underwriters and Ask Kodiak (IVANS) Launch AUI Digital Platform, Transforming Independent Agent Appetite Search

A new way for insurance agents to find the best markets for their customers is here! Appalachian Underwriters has launched AUI Digital: an online market finder tool, powered by Ask Kodiak’s industry-leading technology, built with a focus on Appalachian’s agent customers.

This digital platform provides agents with the ability to search dozens of products, in a matter of seconds, across Life, Commercial, and Personal Lines. After logging in with their Appalachian login credentials to search and find the best product for their customer, the agent will be bridged directly into the relevant market’s insurance application to submit, quote, bind, and/or pay for their business online (depending on that market’s capabilities).

“Appalachian Underwriters works with some of the most digitally advanced markets across Life, Commercial, and Personal Lines. The AUI Digital platform will help agents transact business more efficiently through these markets; giving our agents the opportunity to submit, quote, and, in some cases, bind their customer’s insurance online in a matter of minutes!” said Will Chambers, Director of Digital Partnerships at AUI.

With more markets and platform features being added regularly, Appalachian Underwriters and Ask Kodiak, now part of IVANS, continue to be trailblazers in the world of agent distribution. Agents are now able to log in to AUI Digital, with their Appalachian Underwriters login credentials, and start saving time in finding the best product for their clients.
