Reduce costs and increase revenue
Expand business opportunites with wider distribution. Lower expense ratios by automating segments that were previously unprofitable. Increase your submissions flow with optimized applications, and your hit ratio with quick turnaround.
Increase customer lifetime value
The internet has changed how people want to do business. Joshu’s Stores—portals or APIs—deliver a modern, seamless experience out-of-the-box and across any device, resulting in a better experience for your customers, and higher renewal rates for you.
Easily adapt to changing market conditions
The only constant is change. And that change is happening faster than before. With Joshu, you can update your ratings, applications, and documents in a matter of hours when the market shifts.
Get there faster with the Joshu Builder
According to Novarica, the average time for a carrier to deploy a new P&C product is 7–9 months on average. With Joshu, you can reduce that to a few weeks or less.
Quickly deploy on top of current systems
With Joshu, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Everything is included, freeing your business to experiment, launch, and adapt, and freeing IT to work on the bigger picture.
Save time using existing assets
Why build a new system to recreate the things you already use? Joshu works with your existing rater spreadsheets and policy documents.
Open up new channels of distribution
Joshu Stores are flexible. Create broker-facing and direct-to-consumer portals, or offer your product through our built-in API to connect to third-party exchanges. Sell the same product in different distribution channels. With Joshu, you can create, customize, and launch new channels in a matter of minutes.
Deploy with no dependencies
Joshu is a SaaS platform. There’s nothing to install, nothing to maintain. And it doesn’t have to replace your policy admin system—it’s a simple front-end built to work on top of existing systems.
Custom online applications
In today's world, going digital is no longer an option—it's necessary for success. The way you design your application forms matters for whether brokers or insureds will adopt your digital channels. With Joshu, you can create online applications for any kind of commercial insurance line. Choose from several question types, group questions, or add conditional questions for more complex applications.
Quick changes, new versions, and variations
New claims changed your appetite? Found a better way to score risks? Need to update application questions? Done. Our simple Builder interface makes it easier than ever before to manage change.
Experiment and adapt to changing markets
How long does it take people to answer the application questions? What are the dropoff rates? Use metrics like these and more to optimize applications, launch new products, and customize stores. Joshu gives you the flexibility to move at the speed of business.
Track performance & export
Reports give you real-time insight into how products and stores are performing. Access BI dashboards on Joshu, or export data in customizable bordereaux.
No commitment to get started
All we needed to get started with a proof-of-concept is a rater spreadsheet for one of your products. If you have an application and documents, that’s also helpful but not required.
We speak insurance
One of the biggest hurdles in a digital transformation project is translating between “tech-speak” and “insurance-speak.” We have experience with both, and the product is already designed with you in mind.
It doesn’t take a lot of time to get your initial account set up with a product, and we don’t charge an arm and a leg in setup fees. An ongoing volume-based subscription means we’re successful only when you’re successful.
Uniquely positioned to serve you
Our team has previous experience developing successful digital solutions for commercial insurance. And as product design and software development experts, we can help you transition to digital as quickly and painlessly as possible.
