“Partnering with Convr is a big step in helping us achieve operational excellence, which will strengthen our relationships with brokers and agents at the same time,” said Lauren Dieterich, Senior Vice President and Head of Operations for Crum & Forster’s Surplus & Specialty Lines Division. “Convr’s d3 Intake solution will permit straight-through processing of submissions, while increasing the amount of data captured for downstream analytics and ultimately enable us to provide better quotes faster.”
