Thanks for the interest, guys. This is my 'MVP'—the real goal is to design the whole quoting process, but man is this a tough journey to get insurers onboard and thinking differently.

Hey @iamashley - I'm dying to know, what prompted you to tackle insurance, of all things? Did you have a "screw this!" moment? Did it just seem obvious? Did some kind of research lead you to this? Something else?

@chris_hawk Hi Christopher, thanks for the question! It wasn't much of a choice (in the beginning). My dad passed away and I inherited his property insurance business, http://brokersdirect.co.uk. After doing that for so many years, I wanted to move into a market I enjoy (business) and give that a crack. The fact insurers are so stuffy and the technology sucks has given me a purpose as I want to tackle that side of things.
