State Auto, Leavitt Group join InsurTech leader’s industry-first solution to connect end-insured, agents and carriers for real-time quoting on commercial policies. The company announced that State Automobile Mutual Insurance Company and Leavitt Group are the latest industry partners to be part of its Commercial Submissions platform to drive innovation.

For simplified and real-time quoting on commercial policies, the Commercial Submissions connects the end-insured, agents as well as carriers. The platform works flawlessly within Vertafore’s agency management systems while allowing agents to reduce the labor-intensive, time-consuming and repetitive process of quoting commercial insurance coverage.

As one of the Commercial Submissions carrier design partner, State Auto has been working with Vertafore to bring additional capabilities to independent agents and their business customers. Starting in early 2021, State Auto is planning to enable agents to use Commercial Submissions to quote business owners’ policies  in real-time, trailed by commercial auto and workers’ compensation. “State Auto strongly believes that digital distribution in the independent agent channel is the best path forward for the insurance industry. Vertafore continues to innovate in ways that enable carriers like us to help independent agents grow,” said Brandon Bauer, State Auto vice president of platform distribution. “Integrating State Auto Connect, our fully digital quote and bind platform, with opportunities like Commercial Submissions brings even greater ease of use to our agents at a time where digital is becoming more and more important in commercial lines.”
