Mike Furlong – Founder of Indio Technologies on the Connected Insurance Podcast presented by Agency Revolution

Tech leader declares ‘you can’t replace the broker, but you can empower them’

When Mike Furlong was just an insurance customer, it hurt. Getting commercial insurance wasn’t just hard, it was unpleasant. Having already found success in hedge fund technology, he knew there must be a better way. 

The better way isn’t without agents or brokers. It’s without the headache… for the customer or the agent. Mike’s solution—Indio Technologies—is now trusted by thousands of agencies and brokerages throughout North America, is being used in 30 of the top 100 US agencies today, and it’s attracted $30 million in funding.

Mike shares how he sees the fast-moving insurance industry changing:

  • How commercial agents can thrive by doing less of the manual-labor and drudgery they’ve been enduring for decades (with more time talking to clients)
  • The unique role that ONLY an agent can play – and how emerging technologies can make agents and brokers better
  • A glimpse into what the future of the commercial broker looks like, and how to get there ahead of the competition

If you have time for one conversation about the future of commercial insurance (and insurance in general) please do not miss this conversation with one of the industry’s foremost agents of change.
