February 1, 2012 — Insurance Exchange Improves Communication for Brokers with Carriers; Helps Brokers Access Risk Appetite at the Time of Submission
LexisNexis® Risk Solutions today announced that Dawson Companies, a leading brokerage in the U.S., joined the LexisNexis® Insurance Exchange. The Cleveland-based broker elected to become part of the Insurance Exchange to gain beneficial data intelligence around submission details, response time and valuable real-time information for more productive collaboration with markets.
The LexisNexis Insurance Exchange is a business and renewal submission placement platform that enhances the flow of application data between brokers, agents and their markets. Through the Insurance Exchange, brokers are kept up-to-date as they manage submissions to multiple markets and gain more insight on markets interested in receiving complementary risks, allowing both to focus stronger relationship-building rather than administrative tasks.
“Joining the LexisNexis Insurance Exchange is representative of Dawson Companies’ commitment to offer comprehensive insurance solutions and provide added value to our growing customer base,” said Mike Sherman, CEO, Dawson Companies. “The Insurance Exchange simplifies the way we do business by automating manual processes, enhancing security and improving our market knowledge. This allows us to serve customers and focus on our business objectives.”
Leading brokers who have been using the Insurance Exchange for the past year have experienced significant advantage from the platform’s user-friendly mechanism to better identify matching risk appetites, track progress and communicate during risk placement. It is this success that is attracting industry leaders like Dawson Companies to move quickly to leverage the platform’s many advantages.
“As Dawson Companies continues to grow, the Insurance Exchange is poised to help the brokerage focus on its customers while making the submission process more efficient,” said Peter Lynch, president, LexisNexis Insurance Exchange. “The ability to manage relationships with carriers and more quickly and precisely identify which markets are writing specific risks is driving continued interest in the Insurance Exchange.”
