ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. and OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Nov. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Appalachian Underwriters, Inc. (AUI) and iBynd, LLC (iBynd) have teamed up with biBERK, a Berkshire Hathaway Company (biBERK), to offer independent agents immediate ability to digitally rate, quote, and bind biBERK's workers' compensation insurance. Powered by iBynd's proprietary, embedded insurance platform, AUI's agents can deliver biBERK's workers' compensation policies to customers in as little as 5 minutes. The combined effort delivers quick, easy access to coverage for small and midsize businesses (SMBs) who are time-strapped and want coverage and proof of insurance at the point-of-sale

"iBynd's solution is a perfect fit for agents, empowering them to quote biBERK directly from our portal without any additional credentialing necessary," said Dakota Stiles, Digital Enablement Manager at AUI. "Newly appointed agents have no wait, and existing agents benefit from single sign-on. This instant access eliminates weeks of delay, allowing our agents to quickly place much needed workers' compensation coverage for their SMB clients."

Embedded with just a few lines of code, iBynd's platform boasts built in integrations, underwriting rules, and business requirements crafted through careful collaboration between iBynd, AUI, and biBERK. With iBynd's platform at the center, integrations with biBERK and AUI systems drive major gains for agents. Integrations with AUI's systems provide real time access to manage business. Single sign-on integrations allow agents to use their AUI login credentials to access biBERK's workers' compensation product as soon as they are appointed. Sophisticated API integrations with biBERK are the key to streamlined, accurate quotes and point-of-sale documentation. Security is a top priority with iBynd's solution. Data is encrypted in flight and at rest in the database to ensure secure transactions, with data backups and disaster recovery also included.

"Integrations are a core competency of iBynd's platform, with information passing between the parties to ensure a smooth, accurate rate-quote-bind process and simple, accessible business management," said Phil Friedman, CEO of iBynd. "We have a history of working with AUI to accelerate their agents' success with A-rated insurance, and our combined efforts continue with this launch. We are thrilled to advance the work with AUI and biBERK in bringing these differentiating advantages to the agency base and ultimately the small and midsize commercial businesses who reap the benefits."
