Vertafore, a leading provider of software and services to the insurance industry, today announced that it has significantly expanded its relationship with Hub International Limited (Hub), the ninth largest global insurance broker, to implement a full range of solutions from Vertafore. Hub will roll out Vertafore's full suite of solutions to its offices located across the United States.
"Hub is actively pursuing different solutions such as Vertafore to continually build a best-in-class brokerage, and we are certain that Vertafore can help us achieve this goal," said Donn Vucovich, Hub's president of brokerage shared services. "During the past 12 months, Hub has established a competitive advantage through the use of Vertafore offerings in a number of offices throughout the organization. Based on this success with Vertafore, we are extending Vertafore solutions to all U.S. offices in order to reap the same benefits in all of our operations."
Consolidating to a single Vertafore platform will help Hub better drive productivity, deliver value to agencies and reduce Errors & Omissions, which in turn helps improve customer satisfaction and efficiency. Customers will benefit from faster response times and accurate and consistent service. And instead of spending time re-entering data, Hub employees will be able to devote more time to high-value activities such as selling and servicing business.
Vertafore will provide Hub with a dedicated team to assist in establishing and implementing best-of-breed and integrated solutions, including the new WorkSmart™ workflow and content management system powered by Vertafore's award-winning ImageRight® solution, the Sagitta® management system, the BenefitPoint® management system, the PL Rating personal lines comparative rating solution and Producer Plus® commercial lines tool.
"By consolidating Hub's insurance technology platforms under the Vertafore product suite, we're able to significantly reduce complexity, provide streamlined reporting and establish world-class solutions and best practices for the entire company's operations," said Bill Bunker, president of Vertafore Agency Markets. "We're excited to be able to expand this partnership, and we believe it's a testament to the value of our deep industry expertise and suite of complementary products."
