Integration with BenefitPoint brings together industry’s two leading benefits InsurTech solutions to improve market connectivity and efficiency for benefits teams

DENVER (June 2, 2021) — Vertafore®, the leader in modern insurance technology, today announced a strategic partnership with PerfectQuote® through its Orange Partner Program. With this partnership, Vertafore’s BenefitPoint® customers can now more easily leverage PerfectQuote’s market-leading Group Insurance CPQ software solution to manage their entire benefits procurement, analysis and sales presentation efforts.

The two-way integration between PerfectQuote and BenefitPoint creates a seamless exchange of information, enabling benefits brokers to:

  • Update each solution with critical information in near real time to account for changes that are inevitable in the rapidly changing insurance landscape
  • Use data in both solutions to reduce the time required for client-ready sales presentations
  • Eliminate data entry errors and save valuable time spent on redundant tasks when company benefits decision data is automatically uploaded in either solution.

“Benefits brokers and their teams are always looking for ways to minimize cumbersome, mundane and error-prone tasks that create inefficiencies within the sales process, so that they can focus on providing better value-added services to their clients,” said Aaron Snyder, president and chief operating officer at PerfectQuote. “By partnering with BenefitPoint, we are able to provide an integrated technology stack that these specialized businesses can use to optimize workflows, eliminate redundancy, and increase sales, all within a seamless environment.”

Transforming benefits insurance with InsurTech

Benefits brokers have needs that differ from agencies operating in the property and casualty market. The decisions around employee benefits play a critical role in employment strategy. Employers are weighing the costs to their business against the talent they can attract and keep, and they look to agents to provide the right advice in this high-stakes aspect.

Vertafore’s BenefitPoint solution — the only agency management solution built specifically for the benefits space — helps agencies manage their unique challenges. The solution standardizes and automates processes and workflows, reports and tracks revenue, and enhances business reporting. That’s why seven of the top 10 benefits brokers use BenefitPoint.

PerfectQuote helps brokers and general agents sell faster by eliminating the data entry required to sell and renew insurance. PerfectQuote works with a broker’s entire book of business by supporting several lines of coverage, including ACA/small group medical across all 50 states and large group medical, dental, life, and disability products with the industry's most popular carriers.

The integration of PerfectQuote with BenefitPoint will enable agencies to increase revenue and profitability, while improving customer loyalty. “PerfectQuote shares our mission of transforming the way insurance operates through the use of smart and easy-to-use technology,” said Amy Zupon, chief executive officer at Vertafore. “This partnership with PerfectQuote will deliver tremendous value to our benefits insurance customers looking for ways to modernize and grow their businesses.”
