What markets do you represent?
What if you already represent a carrier that Syndicated Insurance Resources offers?
Some of our product offerings are bundled and require risk management, human resources, payroll, etc. In most cases, you can pick from a menu and use our programs to help you win other lines of business.
Many of our programs can only be accessed through Syndicated Services and our alliance will give you an advantage.
Why did you partner with Appulate?
We partnered with Appulate to provide brokers who work with us ProducerConnect. This “best of breed” bridging technology allows you to send ACORD, supplemental, loss and other data to carriers, wholesale brokerages, MGA and TPA receivers.
Using the ACORD XML standards, Appulate offers an unprecedented level of connectivity to streamline business processes.
How does signing up for your Broker Portal increase my speed to market and responsiveness?
How does your Staff Pro Program work?
Our Staff Pro program allows brokers to set up a staffing program for their smaller clients.
Certificates of Insurance may be provided for the purpose of bidding jobs but it is important to understand that no coverage is extended unless your clients are actively processing their employee payroll through our staffing company.
As with any program, each client must be carefully evaluated to determine if Staff Pro is the right solution for them.
Can you offer a staffing program for just a part of the client's staff?
Yes. Clients can carve out a group of employees and enroll them in the staffing program. We have multiple staffing and PEO options. Each program has certain limitations. But generally, we can find a solution for just about any state or employee classification. Staffing is primarily used for short-term help for temporary labor needs. It can also be a good model for onboarding new hires through their probationary period.
When we sign up a client for the staffing program, are they buying a policy?
No. They are subscribing to a staffing service and coverage is extended through the staffing company’s policy.
Do you have solutions other than staffing or PEO for small employers?
Yes. We have a program for single-employer companies in which the proposed insured has no employees whether part-time or full-time at the time the application for insurance is signed. However, eligibility is limited based on the location and workers’ compensation classification.
If the client has at least one employee, we have multiple A-rated solutions, but this is contingent on loss history, location, and workers’ compensation classifications.
Do you have WC programs for new ventures?
Yes. We have a program for new ventures and even legacy accounts who have not previously had coverage; however, eligibility is limited based on the location, workers’ compensation classification and owner experience in their industry.
