Bold Penguin Announces Partnership with The Agency Collective

Bringing Speed and Efficiency to Independent Agencies

The AC, a new type of premier network partner for insurance agencies, has announced a partnership with Bold Penguin, a rapidly expanding insurance technology provider. The AC’s exclusive distribution partner for small business insurance, Bold Penguin, will provide its agency technology to the company’s 500-plus agency partners.

“We are thrilled to launch our collaboration with The AC. This is a big advancement in our mission to decrease the time from quote to bind across the board for independent agents while protecting the all-important role of the human touch,” said Marc DeLeonibus, Co-founder of Bold Penguin.

The AC’s partner agents will use a terminal designed for independent agents to access Bold Penguin’s technology. In addition, the platform offers a single consolidated question set and a single process flow for quickly and easily quoting insurance policies from multiple carriers. As a result, The AC’s partner agencies can use Bold Penguin’s technology to leverage their collective strength while maintaining their independence.

“Bringing our agency partners leading solutions like Bold Penguin’s that save time and help the small business insurance ecosystem connect and digitize are exactly the solutions we intended to identify when we were founded two years ago,” said Kenny Urbania, CEO of The AC. “We are a network built by agents for agents, so we have a keen understanding of the solutions that will make the biggest impact.”

In 2021 and beyond, The AC network will have access to Bold Penguin’s agent technology.
