Piscataway, NJ

ValueMomentum, Inc., a provider of software and services to the insurance, healthcare and financial services industries, announced today that Appalachian Underwriters Inc. has selected ValueMomentum’s iFoundry Rating Engine and BizDynamics software for enabling rating & online quoting for its AssetGuard personal lines program for valuable personal articles. Appalachian Underwriters is ranked as the nation’s 5th largest MGA and specialize in Workers’ Compensation, Commercial Specialty, Personal Lines, and Brokerage.

AUI has offered AssetGuard for a while, however, the quote and policy issuance process relied heavily on manual processes. “The program was very well received and we wanted to enable online rate-quote-bind to our agents,” said Robert J. Arowood, President of Appalachian Underwriters. “When we evaluated ValueMomentum’s rating software and digital engagement platform we realized it would be a good fit to help us continue our tradition of making Business Easy for our agents. It provides us the flexibility to configure and launch online rating and quoting to our agents.”

“We had a meeting of minds from our very first conversations with the entrepreneurial team at Appalachian Underwriters. Our goal is to provide MGAs and insurance companies access to the modern technology they need to execute like the insurtechs,” said Abhijeet Jhaveri, chief marketing officer of ValueMomentum. “We welcome Appalachian Underwriters as a valued customer of ValueMomentum and look forward to helping them harness the powerful digital forces in their efforts to navigate the opportunities facing the property/casualty industry.”
