HARTFORD, Conn. & BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--InvoiceCloud, an EngageSmart (NYSE: ESMT) solution for online bill payment services, announced a new relationship with insurance software supplier Intellagents, a FatBrain AI company (OTC: LZGI), to provide insurance carriers and their policyholders with a premier billing and payments experience. InvoiceCloud and Intellagents will be sharing more about their joint offering at the ITC Conference September 20-22 in Las Vegas at Booth 2415 and 3176, respectively.
The new joint solution offers policyholders the superior customer experience they expect without straining insurance company’s limited internal resources. Across the industry, insurers are experiencing a shortage of resources, especially in regards to internal IT staff and technology. When an insurer becomes an Intellagents member, they have access to over 60 integrations in the marketplace that can all be implemented through a single API, relieving the internal IT team of the implementation burden. Through the InvoiceCloud and Intellagents integration, insurance companies can implement InvoiceCloud’s inbound premium and outbound payments solution, along with the option of more than 60 other insurance technology tools in Intellagents’ marketplace, into their systems significantly faster and with far fewer resources.
“InvoiceCloud is a best-in-class electronic bill payment solution that complements dozens of other Insurtech and data providers in the Intellagents Insurance Ecosystem,” said Intellagents Founder Mark Stender. “Our no-code integration platform will expedite the onboarding of InvoiceCloud's customers as we connect to a wide variety of billing, policy and claim platforms as well as legacy technologies both in the cloud and on premises. Carriers will quickly begin to benefit from InvoiceCloud’s superior client engagement and payment capabilities upon implementation."
“Partnering with Intellagents enables InvoiceCloud to help more insurance carriers, agents and their policyholders reap the benefits that come with digital transformation,” says InvoiceCloud Vice President of Insurance Julie Schieni. “Our rapid growth in the insurance industry demonstrates the importance of a simple and intuitive policyholder and claimant experience that drives customer satisfaction and the highest levels of digital adoption.”
According to an InvoiceCloud survey, 77% of policyholders made their last insurance payment via a digital route, rendering digital payments an extremely important part of policyholder engagement. InvoiceCloud ensures that these payment touchpoints are as frictionless as possible with an emphasis on ease of use and myriad payment options. Because of InvoiceCloud’s SaaS technology, the payments solution updates automatically without disruption to daily operations and customer experience, so policyholders always have access to the latest payment features and functions.
InvoiceCloud allows customers to make payments in the way that is most convenient to their policyholders, whether that be via phone, online, text, Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, Venmo, or traditional methods like credit card and e-check. Insureds also have the opportunity to set up scheduled payments, reminders, enroll in AutoPay and Paperless Billing, resulting in more on-time payments, accelerated collections and increased customer satisfaction.
Intellagents is a no-code, hybrid cloud, independent insurance integration platform, connecting agents, insurers, and new digital marketplaces and ecosystems with best-in-class Insurtech solutions, data, AI providers, and core and legacy systems to power "Real Change" in the insurance industry. Intellagents removes the costly friction of integrating old and new solutions, and orchestrates agile, efficient performance through one dynamic API marketplace.
