Easy & Simple: use ACORD drag and drop to speed up E&S submissions

Arguably one of the worst parts of when a risk goes E&S is the amount of forms that you have to fill out. You’ve already filled out an ACORD, and a few applications, and now you have to fill out even more for each market your wholesaler is working with, with the same information, over and over again. On top of that, you’re fielding a slew of emails, forwarded to you by your wholesaler, from multiple underwriters - that is, if they even respond to your emails.

It’s unacceptable to expect anyone to type out the same information over and over. That’s why when you’re filling out our address to order something online, there is always the option to autofill. 

The very first insurance problem we decided to solve with software to make it so we could take in information that had already been filled out in other places. Why not use the ACORD that agencies have already filled out by the time a risk goes E&S?

Early on at Pathpoint, we built FormExtract - the feature that pulls all the info in the ACORD form you’ve already filled out right into your Pathpoint submission so that it can quickly be sent off to various carriers. All you have to do is drag and drop your ACORD into your submission, and it’s like magic happens - your application instantly fills with the information from the ACORD. Of course, you still have the ability to go through and edit the risk information in the application.

Fields that will auto-populate include:

  • Named Insured
  • Primary Business Address
  • City
  • State
  • Zip code
  • Date Business Started

No other wholesaler offers this service - we’re the first wholesaler that works with what you already have. 

Now you never have to re-key information. Especially not when you’re filling out ridiculously long, only slightly different applications to just find out the wholesaler can’t even quote your risk (we took care of that problem, too). 

Log in here to just drag and drop your ACORD into our application, and get your quotes that much faster.
