Accident Support Services International (ASSI) announced that it has partnered with Insurance Solutions Group (ISG) to bring its unique and innovative accident reporting service to the US auto insurance market.

Stephen Applebaum, managing partner of Insurance Solutions Group, is a subject matter expert and thought leader providing consulting, advisory and strategic M&A services to participants in all segments of the North American property and casualty insurance ecosystem.

Stephen has a strong focus on innovation, information technology, claims process improvement, supply chain and vendor and performance management.

Mr. Applebaum observed that "The U.S. auto claims process has been gradually improved through the implementation of technology-enabled information management and workflow enhancements, however the front-end of the process — from the moment of an accident through to carrier initiation of claim and related support services — continues to be highly inefficient, protracted and not particularly customer friendly."

The ASSI accident reporting model resolves these issues with an innovative and highly effective solution and I am proud and excited to be working with ASSI to introduce their service to the U.S. market."

ASSI’s custom reporting software accelerates claim and first notice of loss reporting and provides carriers and law enforcement with powerful claims, underwriting and road safety analytics data.

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Stephen and Insurance Solutions Group. We are confident that this relationship, combined with our expertise and proven service will bring tremendous value and benefit to the U.S. market," said Steve Sanderson, founder and President of ASSI.
