BOLT and LexisNexis Partnership: Complete Direct to Consumer InsuranceDecember 12 2017
NEW YORK (December 12, 2017) — BOLT Solutions, Inc. (www.boltinc.com), provider of the leading online distribution and customer support platform to the property and casualty (P&C) insurance industry, announces its relationship with LexisNexis Risk Solutions, a leading provider of data, analytics and technology, to simplify and expedite the consumer and agent quotes process and improve quote-to-completion rates. BOLT will leverage solutions from LexisNexis such as LexisNexis® Data Prefill, which provides consumers’ driver’s license numbers, VINs and more, to easily fill in information on the BOLT Platform’s online automobile insurance application and help improve customer experience. “Our goal is to provide industry-leading data and analytics to increase the speed and efficiency of the online quote process,” said Bill Madison, CEO of Insurance at LexisNexis Risk Solutions. “Working with an innovator like BOLT, we can provide the ease and convenience consumers are looking for when purchasing personal and business insurance coverage.” While most consumers shopping for auto coverage use direct to consumer (D2C) channels for quoting, only a small percentage of those quotes turn into new business. Streamlining the quote-to-issuance process with application pre-fill capabilities will help to increase quote-to-completion rates and drive business opportunities. “Leveraging LexisNexis’ solutions will streamline the quote-to-issuance process to meet the needs of customers simply and quickly,” said Eric Gewirtzman, BOLT CEO. “The BOLT platform brings innovation and efficiency to the P&C insurance industry and this relationship is another step that is transforming the industry.” The BOLT Platform supports more than 75,000 sales professionals, offers over 5,500 product integrations across 50 states and has $1.4B in annual premium flowing through the system.
