Briza integrates with EMPLOYERS to Enable Insurance Agents to Deliver Workers' Compensation Insurance Digitally
Tuesday, June 30, 2020

Toronto-based announced it is integrating with EMPLOYERS®, America's small business insurance specialist®, to enable digital distribution of its small business insurance products.

LOS ANGELES, June 22, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Briza is a commercial insurance API (application programming interface) that connects insurers' underwriting systems to insurance agencies and consumer apps. These deep connections enable quick insurance delivery by allowing consumers to get small business insurance quotes, pay, and have a policy issued to them in a matter of minutes online. This saves insurance agents hours of busywork, freeing up time that is typically spent duplicating paperwork, sending forms, and logging into multiple carrier websites to get quotes.

One of Briza's agency customers based in Austin, Texas, had this to say: "As an independent agent, I'm always looking for ways to grow the commercial side of my book, but I'm always frustrated with how long it takes to write these small business policies. With Briza, I can help clients get quotes, pay online, and have coverage bound in minutes. It's a huge game-changer."

The integration allows any of Briza's customers, which are independent insurance agencies across two dozen U.S. states and growing, to sell EMPLOYERS' workers' compensation products online through agency-branded portals. In future versions of the Briza software, the integration will also enable small business owners to purchase workers' compensation through financial services apps such as banking, bookkeeping, payroll, and tax preparation that upsell existing complementary services.

This development is exciting based on our greater reliance on technology in today's world. "In 2020, consumers expect buying products online to be instant," said Ben Munro, CEO of Briza. "Small business insurers that adapt to changing agent expectations will gain a competitive advantage. EMPLOYERS is a great example of a company that is committed to innovating and making it easier for their customers by building these systems on the carrier side. We are excited to work with them."

EMPLOYERS feels similarly about the new relationship with Briza. "In the era of APIs, distribution is king," said Ray Wise, Senior Vice President of Sales at EMPLOYERS. "This is clearly the way the insurance industry is moving, and this integration helps further position us to take advantage of the potential of emerging technology. It gets our products in front of more small business owners and the agents they turn to for expert advice and service."
