American Access Casualty Expands BindExpress into Three New States

Staff Writer | June 01, 2016

SpeedBuilder Systems announces that American Access Casualty Company (AACC) has gone live with the BindExpress Product Configurator and Rating modules in the states of Arizona, Indiana, and Nevada. The solution enables business owners to make, test, and deliver rating changes with minimal involvement from IT staff.

“With BindExpress, my department can react quickly and efficiently to the ever-changing non-standard auto market in which we compete,” says Matt Reznicek, director, pricing and product at AACC. “The quick turnaround ensures that product and pricing improvements can impact our bottom line much sooner. And because the unified platform services all channels—from our in-house legacy system, to multiple, real-time third-party raters—we know our pricing is accurate and consistent everywhere.”

“American Access has become a ‘poster child’ for the BindExpress Product Configurator,” says Rod Giess, president of SpeedBuilder Systems. “Once we had successfully partnered with their in-house IT department for the first state (Texas), their business analysts in the pricing group expanded into three additional states, with very little help from outside their department—a real testament to the delivered solution.”

“The speed to market and flexibility are the obvious benefits; however, I sleep better knowing that exceptions, premium leakage within rating, and errors have been virtually eliminated by managing our product rules and rating with BindExpress,” says Reznieck. “There are tangible impacts on financial ratios, but we also believe the new consistency gives us a lift from the service/ease-of-use standpoint in the competitive independent agency market.”

AACC will add the state of Illinois to the platform in late summer 2016. When completed, the system will handle upwards of 1.5 million rating calls annually, with a gross premium volume of over $300MM.
