Encova Insurance is a recipient of the IVANS Gold Digital Insurer award in commercial lines and the IVANS Silver Digital Insurer award in personal lines. We received the recognition for our ability to provide connectivity and automate information exchange with our agency partners across the policy lifecycle – from marketing and quoting to servicing and renewals.
“Through our partnership with IVANS, we’ve been able to improve the experience for our appointed agents and deliver on our mission to be the most trusted and responsive provider of industry-leading solutions,” Encova Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer John Kessler said. “Recognition like this is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our teams. We are humbled to have received the award in commercial lines for three years running, and we are thrilled to now add this honor in personal lines.”
Encova scored the highest and was ranked No. 1 of approximately 400 carriers doing commercial lines business with IVANS. Earning gold status indicates Encova is in the top percentile of digital technology adoption when compared to our peers.
