In 1997, Bruce Hopkins saw the writing on the wall. The internet was growing. The direct writers were quoting online. His independent insurance agency was being left behind.
To help his agency compete for internet business, Bruce enlisted his technology-wiz brother, Brian. Together they created the Insurance Brokers Quoting System or IBQ Systems.
Starting as a comparative rater for Personal Lines in the Northwest, IBQ now offers a suite of products for independent agents and carriers.
IBQ makes it easy for over 4000 agents to get quotes from multiple carriers all in one spot. This ease of use led to carriers asking IBQ to develop a front end for direct-to consumer quoting. IBQ then adapted our technology to enable MGAs to extend rates out to their retail agencies.
Our commercial lines rater is our latest insurtech offering to save agents time in all 50 states. With over 15 carriers on board, agents can compare quotes for BOP, General Liability and Workers Comp.
