Insurance Noodle, part of Willis North America, has launched its immediate personal lines quoting hub. Expanding on the functionality of the company’s commercial lines quoting hub, the offering allows insurance agents to log-in and complete an online application to get real-time quotes for home and auto risks in 38 states. The quoting hub connects member agents to products from personal lines carriers. Currently, five top insurance carriers offer quotes via the hub, with additional carriers coming on in the next few months.
Insurance Noodle is the distribution vehicle for the Willis Commercial Network North America, which provides products and services to small insurance agents and brokers nationwide.
The firm said the personal lines automated quoting platform has been pilot tested by existing members since July. The company said nearly 1,000 members adopted the platform within the first month. It is now being offered for widespread distribution to small agencies across the country. While available carriers vary by state, the platform delivers at least two options (on personal lines) for most locations.
The Insurance Noodle platform also provides agents with a database of their Insurance Noodle book of business. All client records, quotes and policies from all carriers are stored in the member’s profile on the Insurance Noodle website. Agents can quote, bind, service, and renew business, all online. More enhancements to the network are in development.
