PORT WASHINGTON, WI – (April 23, 2019) – Ansay & Associates has built its own digital agency platform on top of the DAIS platform, while also becoming the first agency to adopt the Internet of InsuranceTM Operating System. The new technology decisively bolsters Ansay & Associates’ reputation as a leader in technological innovation.

“We are committed to fostering a culture of innovation and growth at Ansay & Associates,” said Mike Ansay, the agency’s CEO. “This is a vital step on that journey. By harnessing the power of this new technology, we’re not only providing a streamlined experience for today’s customer, we’re setting a course for future generations, one that promises even more modernizations and improvements.”

Erik Mikkelson, the agency’s innovative Chief Development Officer architected the solution on the DAIS platform.

“We’ve been able to solve the 30-year-old SEMCI (single entry multiple carrier interface) problem with DAIS, which is already yielding a 20% reduction in our marketing expenses,” Mikkelson said. “Our success was enabled by DAIS’ flexible infrastructure and proprietary microservices. In our personal lives, we see companies like Netflix delivering video streaming through microservices – why shouldn’t we demand the same delightful customer experience in insurance for our policyholders and carrier partners.”

Many of Ansay’s partner insurance carriers are helping Ansay to address these problems with their support, innovation capabilities, and vision for the future.

“Change takes work, and the carriers that supported our innovation with their patience and persistence realized 9 points more growth in 2018 than carriers that were not supporting innovation,” said Mikkelson.

Insurance industry veteran and DAIS co-founder, Aaron Larson, said it is rare to see an agency with this type of precision in execution given the magnitude of technology, people and process changes involved in this sort of transformation.

“Ansay’s entire leadership team and organization deserves recognition for the amount of leadership and collaboration it exhibited in this accomplishment,” Larson said.
