Tarmika today announced a new relationship with EMPLOYERS®, America’s small business insurance specialist®, which aims to enable the insurance carrier’s independent agents with an enhanced and streamlined workers’ compensation quoting process.
“EMPLOYERS continues to show us their commitment to the independent agency channel,” said Chris Paradiso, owner of Connecticut-based Paradiso Insurance, “For years we have been looking to be profitable on Small Commercial, and Tarmika makes that possible and this integration with EMPLOYERS takes it to new heights.”
The API (application programming interface) integration allows any of EMPLOYERS’ appointed agents, which are independent property and casualty insurance agencies across the nation, excluding four monopolistic states, to rate and quote EMPLOYERS within the Tarmika platform. Tarmika’s platform utilizes API integrations with top-rated carriers from across the country to seamlessly return multiple quotes through a single entry – providing an enhanced employee and customer experience.
“Tarmika is excited to be partnering with EMPLOYERS to streamline workers’ compensation for independent agents,” says Raghav Tanna, CEO of Tarmika, “Our technology enables insurers to expand distribution channels – meeting their agents where they want to transact business. This relationship is another example of EMPLOYERS’ and our commitment to the independent agency channel.”
“APIs are the future of the insurance industry,” said Ray Wise, senior vice president, chief sales officer at EMPLOYERS. “Our integration with Tarmika will allow us to further utilize the technology and help us continue to be a great collaborator with agents, producers and policyholders when they turn to EMPLOYERS for expert advice and service.”
Tarmika is a single-entry efficiency tool designed to enable independent agents.
