Bold Penguin—a rapidly growing insurance technology provider—announced its collaboration with The Agency Collective (AC)—a type of new premier network partner for insurance agencies. Bold Penguin will be AC’s special small business insurance distribution partner and bring its agency technology to the AC’s 500+ agency partners. “We are thrilled to launch our collaboration with The Agency Collective. This is a big advancement in our mission to decrease the time from quote to bind across the board for independent agents while protecting the all-important role of the human touch,” said Marc DeLeonibus, Co-founder of Bold Penguin.

The AC’s partner agents will access Bold Penguin’s technology through a terminal designed for independent agents. The platform is designed to provide a consolidated question set and one process flow to easily quote insurance policies from multiple carriers.

With the advanced Bold Penguin’s technology, the AC’s partner agencies benefit from harnessing their collective power while preserving their independence. “Bringing our agency partners leading solutions like Bold Penguin’s that save time and help the small business insurance ecosystem connect and digitize are exactly the solutions we intended to identify when we were founded two years ago,” said Kenny Urbania, CEO of The Agency Collective. “We are a network built by agents for agents, so we have a keen understanding of the solutions that will make the biggest impact.”

Throughout 2021 and beyond that,  Bold Penguin’s agent technology will be available to the AC network. Founded in 2019, the AC is a new type of agency network that offers a suite of tools to its partner agencies, including Bold Penguin’s Terminal platform. The AC works with close to 600 agencies of all sizes.
