Tokio Marine HCC to deliver savings to agents with enhanced online efficiencies

Tokio Marine HCC – Surety Group, headquartered in Los Angeles, California, and part of the Tokio Marine HCC group of companies, has announced a partnership with North America’s leading insurance technology provider, Vertafore®, to streamline how agents and brokers transact surety bond business online.

Surety Group

The partnership between Tokio Marine HCC – Surety Group and Vertafore’s best-in-class agency management system, AMS360®, developed technology that eliminates the need for agents and brokers to re-key data into their own systems. This integration allows agents and brokers to seamlessly download bond information from Tokio Marine HCC into AMS360 for billing and administration via an automated daily export of new transactions, renewals or a full differential export of active customers and surety bonds.

“Partnerships like Tokio Marine HCC are a prime example of Vertafore’s purpose of automating and simplifying the insurance distribution lifecycle,” said Doug Mohr, Vertafore Vice President of Industry Relations and Partnerships. “We are excited for the value this integration can bring to our agencies.”

Adam Pessin, President and CEO of Tokio Marine HCC – Surety Group, commented, “The Surety industry has often been slow to adopt digital enhancements, but Tokio Marine HCC constantly strives to make the issuance, renewal and management of surety bonds as efficient as possible.”

“The new enhancement allows agents and brokers to seamlessly extract all the bond and customer data they need, saving significant amounts of time and cost.”

“We are determined to make the trading experience with Tokio Marine HCC – Surety Group as efficient as possible through technology that delivers value to our agency and broker partners. We will continue to invest in our tech capabilities to pass on the savings to our agents and brokers and their clients.”
