“Just to give you an idea of how many platforms we endorse as an organization, I mean, as an enterprise nationally, it’s less than a handful. So this is a big deal to us. We thoroughly vet technology platforms, because it’s such a huge part of what we do.

Just the way your presentation went underlines the biggest reason we like you guys so much, and it’s because most platforms are built by technology experts that really don’t have the insurance expertise. And here we're walking through practical examples of how you would apply this stuff and we’re talking to people who know this business.

Insurance people are the best equipped to drive technology like this and you don’t find enough of them that can do what you guys can do. We can’t wait to get rolling with it.”
