Instec Client Aon Affinity Wins Celent Model Insurer Award Press Releases| Mar 16, 2021

Naperville, IL – March 16, 2021 – Instec client Aon Affinity has been recognized by Celent, a global financial services research and advisory firm, as a winner of a 2021 Model Insurer award for Data, Analytics, and AI. The award recognizes the success of Aon Affinity’s behavior-based insurance program for small fleet transportation.

Aon Affinity’s “Aon Small-Fleet Advantage Risk Retention Group” harnesses data from electronic logging devices (ELDs) and adjusts rates monthly based on driving behavior. The program uses Instec Policy as the rating, quoting, and issuing engine and is offered exclusively through CarrierHQ’s mobile-friendly online portal. The program fills a gap in the underserved small-fleet market – fleets comprised of 20 or fewer trucks.

“We’re proud to have Aon recognized for their innovative program incorporating Instec technology,” said Chuck Fillizola, President and Chief Revenue Officer at Instec. It’s a prime example of the type of customized product insurers build on our platform to target the unique needs of a market niche.”

Celent’s annual Model Insurer Awards recognize the best practices of technology usage in areas critical to success in the insurance industry. Nominations are submitted by financial institutions and undergo a rigorous evaluation process by Celent analysts. Celent judges submissions on three core criteria: demonstrable business benefits of live initiatives, the degree of innovation relative to the industry, and the technology or implementation excellence. For the 2021 Model Insurer program, Celent received nearly 100 submissions from 24 countries.
