Allied Insurance Changes Quoting Process for Writing Business Insurance

July 14, 2010

Allied Insurance, based in Des Moines, Iowa, announced new changes to its commercial quoting process that it says will allow independent agents to write business insurance quicker and easier. Among the new features:

  • 25 percent – 45 percent of previously asked commercial application questions have been eliminated (depending on the specific business-owners-product program);
  • Elimination of up to six supplemental applications;
  • Addition of clearer questions to improve underwriting efficiency and turnaround times.

Allied Insurance President W. Kim Austen said the “changes reflect direct feedback from our agents, so we felt compelled to take steps that make Allied easier to do business with.”

Allied Insurance has also recently announced significant product changes with expanded coverage options and is now offering coverage enhancement endorsements for a wide range of industries and products.

With a new application process for premier business owners and business auto, independent agents will be better equipped to meet their clients’ needs with superior service and coverage from Allied, the company said.

Allied operates in 34 states through a network of independent agents with regional offices in Denver, Colo.; Des Moines, Iowa; Lincoln, Neb.; Gainesville, Fla; and Sacramento, Calif. Allied has been a member of the Nationwide family of companies since 1998, and is responsible for Nationwide’s independent agency system.
