INDIANAPOLIS, June 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- From the IASA Annual Educational Conference and Business Show, BOLT Solutions, Inc. (www.boltinc.com), provider of the leading omni-channel distribution platform to the property and casualty (P&C) insurance industry, and e2Value, Inc. (www.e2value.com), the leading provider of web-based property valuation solutions, today announced a partnership to enhance the Bolt Platform with e2Value's solutions. The e2Value capabilities are now available to current Bolt Platform customers and have been pre-integrated into the Platform for future customers.
The Bolt/e2Value partnership is a direct result of the companies' common goal to enable the ideal customer experience and to make it easier for both customers and insurance companies to conduct business. The Bolt Platform includes the leading consumer and agency online quoting, binding and issuing technology, which was designed to ensure quality and speed of communication between insurers and their customers. The addition of the e2Value valuation solutions further enhances insurer/customer communications by:
- Providing homeowners a simple method to calculate the replacement cost value of their home—critical data when choosing the right coverage;
- Making it easier for consumers to complete a homeowners application by reducing the amount of information detail required;
- Delivering more accurate coverage quotes; and
- Enabling overall better customer service and satisfaction.
e2Value is currently being implemented as part of the deployment of the Bolt Platform with a leading direct-to-consumer insurance carrier.
"Our partnership with e2Value enables a great addition to the Bolt Platform. Consumers want an experience that is fast and streamlined, but they also want to be sure that they are getting the right coverage for their specific needs. The combination of our Platform and e2Value's property valuation tools is a great marriage of capabilities for both consumers and carriers," said Tim Attia, executive vice president of Bolt. "Getting a fast, accurate and consistent property replacement value and validating property characteristics are key to delivering a quality customer experience, especially in a multi-carrier choice environment. Quality services and insurance products, delivered quickly, easily and at reduced costs translate to a win for every stakeholder in the insurance process."
"We are committed to providing a great customer and carrier experience around the crucial act of supplying a home's proper replacement cost value. This partnership highlights our ability to quickly deliver vital home values, which allows the Bolt Platform to help homeowners obtain the proper coverage," added Ken Shaw, vice president of sales and marketing at e2Value. "We look forward to working with Bolt to help carriers, agents and homeowners receive quick, accurate quotes and coverage."
