AVYST Joins Vertafore Orange Partner Program
Bi-Directional Forms Integration Extends Reach of eForms Wizard Submission Tool
DENVER and DALLAS (April 2, 2019) — Vertafore, the leading provider of insurance software and Wave Insurance Technologies Inc., dba AVYST, today jointly announced that AVYST has joined the Orange Partner Program. AVYST is an insurtech company providing sales and risk management solutions for independent agents and brokers and their carrier partners.
“We are excited to welcome AVYST into the Vertafore Orange Partner Program,” said Doug Mohr, Vertafore VP of Industry Relations and Partnerships. “Our partners will have unparalleled access to the full range of APIs available for each product, enabling the provision of solutions across multiple Vertafore products.”
The Orange Partner Program provides open access and integration opportunities with Vertafore application programming interfaces (APIs) for customers and partners. The program also extends to complementary third-party technology providers, such as AVYST, which have developed their own integrations with Vertafore solutions and continue to provide innovation within the insurance industry.
“Becoming a member of the Orange Partner Program is the perfect culmination of our product development initiatives,” said Marc Still, AVYST CEO. “We’ve been working with Vertafore’s talented sales and technology executives over the past year and have already engaged with a number of agency owners and carriers we mutually identified as the industry’s outstanding technology leaders.”
eForms Wizard is the initial AVYST solution enabling bi-directional forms integration with Vertafore’s AMS360, with other Vertafore solution integrations to follow. eForms Wizard was launched in 2017 by industry veterans and key AVYST investors who sought to vastly improve the scattered, inefficient workflow required to submit a risk or account to a carrier or wholesaler. eForms Wizard eliminates the numerous manual, paper-based steps in marketing and point-of-sale processes for agents, carriers, MGAs and wholesalers. It provides hundreds of industry standard and carrier-unique applications and forms and also integrates with the IRMI Glossary of Termsä, leading to a more complete and effective submission process.
AMS360 is an agency management software that enables you to focus on the heart of your business – your customers. It streamlines accounting, automates manual processes, and enables seamless connections with carriers, so you can dedicate more time to your customers and prospects.
AVYST was built by insurance professionals known for their technology advocacy in the industry, noted Kitty Ambers, CIC, CPIA, CISR, AVYST Chief Growth Officer. “We are all about enabling the independent agent and broker system and thoroughly understand this industry and the inherent challenges for producers and CSRs. Quite simply, our vision is a world where confident insurance professionals deliver an enjoyable customer experience without paper or error.”
The Vertafore integration is part of AVYST’s strategy to build partnerships across the industry, Ambers said, adding that the insurtech firm already has strong partnerships with agent associations including PIA National, user groups such as NetVU (Network of Vertafore Users), MGAs, carriers and other technology solution providers.
Wave Insurance Technologies Inc., dba AVYST, is a Dallas, Texas, and Aurora, Colorado-based company providing sales and risk management solutions to efficiently manage a referral through the application and submissions process. The initial product, eForms Wizard, eliminates the numerous manual and paper-based steps in marketing and point-of-sale processes for agents, carriers, MGAs and wholesalers. For insurance professionals seeking to eliminate inefficient workflows, AVYST technology seeks to connect all industry stakeholders – including agents, brokers, carriers, MGAs, wholesalers, user groups, and other technology firms – by seamlessly and securely sharing data. The AVYST team comprises entrepreneurs, insurance experts and technology advocates who for years have campaigned to improve the experience for the insurance professional and consumer.
