InsuranceNoodle’s current line of commercial insurance products covers more than 1,000 small business types and includes business owners policy (BOP), commercial auto, umbrella insurance, workers’ compensation, employment practices liability insurance (EPLI), professional liability, and surety bonds.

“Our agreement with InsuranceNoodle rounds-out the offerings IMMS provides its members,” IMMS Chairman George Norhaus said. “Regardless of their size, our members can now access – with no technology costs and very fair commission splits – hundreds of business categories through InsuranceNoodle.”
