Philadelphia Insurance Companies (PHLY) is excited to announce the launching of its new PHLY Bond Direct system. The online, point-of-sale service for commercial surety bonds streamlines the submission process and automates the underwriting and execution of surety bonds.

“PHLY Bond Direct makes online submissions quick and easy. Many bonds can be instantly issued by agents without the need for complex submissions,” explained Edward Titus, senior vice president of surety underwriting. “The system complements PHLY’s regional surety underwriting experts by serving as a centralized location for transactional surety.”

Powerful database driven filters and search fields in PHLY Bond Direct enables agents nationwide to locate and execute a bond in minutes. Agents can execute official bond documents directly from their printer.
