Figo Pet Insurance wins the SMA Innovation in Action Award at the annual SMA Summit
Tuscaloosa, AL September 29, 2016 – Insuresoft, a leading insurance transaction processing solution provider for property and casualty insurance carriers, is thrilled to announce our client Figo Pet Insurance, was presented the SMA Innovation in Action Award during the annual SMA Summit at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Boston.
The annual awards program recognizes truly innovative projects, solutions, and initiatives within the insurance industry. In the five years of the program, SMA has seen clear evidence of the incredible strides being made within the insurance industry by insurers and solution providers. “It’s a great time to be in insurance,” said Karen Furtado, SMA Partner. “We congratulate all of the winners and participants on their successes and creativity in reinventing insurance for the 21st century!"
Figo Pet Insurance was awarded for their unique approach to the pet insurance business model through the innovative use of emerging technologies including Insuresoft’s Diamond System for policy administration, billing, and claims. Figo’s reimagination of the pet insurance value proposition is focused on making life easier for people and their pets. Their holistic approach to customer experience offers a meaningful example of how the insurance industry can reinvent its business models and customer engagement strategies for the digital world.
“It is an honor for Figo’s project implementing the Diamond System to be selected to win the SMA Innovation in Action Awards,” said Tony Villa, CEO of Insuresoft. “Rolling out the Diamond system, online quoting, and a cloud-based portal (including mobile claims submission) in less than 9 months, showcases Figo’s commitment to excellence and providing their insureds an exemplary customer experience. Figo’s dedication to this project and their outstanding results make them an optimal choice for this award," Villa stated.
“Insuresoft made significant contributions to Figo’s success,” said Rusty Sproat, founder and CEO of Figo Pet Insurance. “Without them, we would not have been able to successfully integrate multiple systems into a unified platform.
“Insuresoft understood we were an entirely internet-based business and were able to fully integrate their insurance solution with Figo's Pet Cloud technology platform. Customers can access vet information, view policy documents, setup online pet profiles, file claims, find pet-friendly businesses, track their pet's real time location with a GPS-enabled collar, text customer support, and more, all from the smartphone. It’s unbelievable what they accomplished in a short time, said Sproat"
As a result of the new capabilities from the Diamond Suite, Figo achieved a successful market launch, and has been able to support mass enrollments for voluntary benefits clients and private exchanges. Additionally, the Diamond broker portal has allowed Figo to upload and enroll over 6,400 Independent Agents and pay commissions electronically. Figo went from startup to 50 states in just under 9 months, and continues to experience 30% month-over-month growth.
