Stamford, CT, January 30, 2006 . . . e2Value, Inc., a web-based property valuation provider, and First Internet Solutions (FIS), an application service provider (ASP) for the property and casualty insurance industry, have reached an agreement to provide a wide array of business and technology solutions to small to mid-sized insurance carriers. The deal is effective immediately.
The two companies will offer each others’ services as value added resources to new and existing customers. e2Value will refer insurance carriers that have little or no web presence to FIS for the creation of Web sites for executing the integration of e2Value valuation programs. FIS will integrate e2Value valuation programs into their Web-based personal and commercial lines quoting and policy processing applications. FIS will refer customers and prospects to e2Value seeking web-based valuation services, and will create links from carriers’ Web sites directly to e2Value, allowing for a seamless login for insurance agents. The two companies will offer packages to carriers that are just establishing a web presence.
“Working together, we are offering smaller and mid-sized insurance companies vast additional resources, quick access to a multitude of valuation programs, and workflow and Insurance-to-Value (ITV) solutions that otherwise might take months or years for them to complete on their own,” said Todd W. Rissel, chairman and CEO of e2Value, Inc.
“FIS regularly works with carriers that are looking for alternative solutions for ITV tools, and many have found e2Value to be an exceptional answer to their valuation needs,” said Brian Schaff, CPCU, Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter of FIS. “Together, we’re now offering a strong, versatile service package to a large segment of the insurance industry nationwide.”
e2Value provides insurance, banking and real estate companies nationwide with replacement cost valuations for all properties throughout the United States, with estimators focused on residential, commercial, and farm and ranch structures. The latter two offerings were launched in early 2005. The company introduced the first standardized, customizable system for insurers and the banking industry to accurately and quickly determine the individual replacement cost values of these individual properties in a way consistent with today’s technology, noted Mr. Rissel.
