Share Article

Cutting-edge platform is part of company’s overall digital transformation initiative to accelerate the delivery of insurance quotes and binds for agent partners.

We see Instec as more than just a technology provider. We view them as a strategic partner in our quest to establish a leadership position in the niche markets we serve.

NSM Insurance Group, the nation’s leading specialty insurance provider, has deployed the Instec Policy system to quote, bind, issue and renew insurance policies for several of its specialty commercial insurance programs. As the leader in delivering more than 20 industry-specific insurance programs across a myriad of diverse industries, NSM is streamlining the quote submission process for its 10,000+ agent partners across the United States. The company has grown to more than $1 billion in annual premium with over 30,000 commercial clients through a combination of acquisitions and organic growth.

“We see Instec as more than just a technology provider. We view them as a strategic partner in our quest to establish a leadership position in the niche markets we serve,” said Prateek Sangal, Chief Commercial Lines Officer at NSM Insurance Group.

Nik Umrani, Global CIO at NSM Insurance Group added, “At NSM, we embrace strategic investments in technology and operations as a driving force to enable smarter business decisions and profitable business growth. Instec has proven itself as a robust platform for leading-edge insurance programs with a bias for rapid implementation. That’s why we have added Instec as a key strategic platform within our systems portfolio.”

NSM initially deployed the Instec Policy in 2019 for its nonprofit and social services program and will implement the platform across several other programs as part of a larger digital transformation to provide a unified user experience for its agent partners, including its commercial towing and condo/real estate programs.

“NSM continues to pursue an aggressive growth plan and we’re a superb fit for a fast-moving and entrepreneurial company seeking greater control over their quoting process,” said Chuck Fillizola, President and Chief Revenue Officer at Instec. “Instec has a reputation for maintaining quality and accuracy in complex commercial products as they evolve — and we’re extremely honored by NSM’s confidence in our technology and capabilities to support their significant growth.”

Additionally, NSM and Instec are exploring integration opportunities in big data and advanced analytics and piloting new technologies coming out of Instec’s development labs to continue to
automate the quoting system.
