Willis Group, a global risk advisor, insurance and reinsurance broker, has introduced its new online quoting platform for commercial lines, which provides better connectivity to the insurance marketplace for its agents and broker members.

Insurance Noodle, a distribution vehicle for the Willis Commercial Network North America, delivers products and services to small insurance agents and brokers in the country.

Powered by a new technology partner, the Insurance Noodle Plus (IN+) platform enables agents to gain access to the admitted commercial lines marketplace, for BOP, commercial auto, workers compensation, umbrella, and professional liability.

Leveraging a single online entry point, the platform connects agents to real-time quotes from seven insurance carriers and offers various enhanced features, including the option to obtain a quick rate indication or a fully bindable quote.

Its smooth user interface provides a simple binding process and includes more user assistance throughout the application.

When standard markets do not provide terms, Insurance Noodle member agents can access the non-admitted commercial lines marketplace through its wholesale partner.

Willis Commercial Network managing partner Ralph Blust said, "Insurance Noodle Plus delivers total solutions for the small agency from a single resource, saving significant time and effort while expanding their ability to write more business."

Using the Insurance Noodle website, agents can store all client records, quotes and policies from all carriers in the member’s profile.
