DES MOINES, Ia. (March 28, 2016) – InsuranceSocial.Media, the leading social media software solution for insurance agents, today announced it has been selected to participate in the Acord Insurance Innovation Challenge semi-finals, a competition that strives to identify and promote significant and sustainable innovation in and for the insurance industry.
InsuranceSocial.Media, the flagship product of Serious Social Media, utilizes state-of-the-art technology to create, curate, and automatically post insurance social media content to the social media accounts of busy insurance agents.
“Acord is focused on cutting-edge technology, and it’s a great affirmation of our company that the AIIC selected us to pitch InsuranceSocial.Media to the judges and the audience on April 26,” said David Beall, CEO of Serious Social Media, headquartered in Orange, Calif.
“Being accepted into the Acord Insurance Innovation Challenge is another validation of our product and our business model.”
Earlier this year InsuranceSocial.Media was named one of the six InsurTech companies to be part of the Global Insurance Accelerator’s second cohort. Based in Des Moines, the insurance innovation capital of the United States, the GIA was the first U.S.-based insurance accelerator to help grow insurance-focused technology startups.
Through meetings with insurance carriers facilitated by the GIA, as well as mentoring relationships that have developed though the GIA, InsuranceSocial.Media has had the opportunity to further refine their product, to meet with investors, and to build relationships with more than a dozen insurance carriers that have expressed interest in adopting InsuranceSocial.Media and rolling it out to their agent force.
Founded by a team of insurance executives, professional writers, and software engineers, InsuranceSocial.Media combines professionally written, regulatory-compliant insurance social media marketing with cutting-edge technology and industry expertise.
