Working with Shepherd

We received the submission from this broker due after engaging with the client through our partnership with OpenSpace in the Casualty Pro program. The submission was for the contractor’s upcoming practice program renewal. We provided our initial indication within 7 hours of receiving the submission. We activated the Casualty Pro offering immediately to receive the client’s usage data from OpenSpace to include in the underwriting - which benefited their proposal terms. We provided our formal quote within 2 days of receiving the underlying terms.
