NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Integrated Specialty Coverages (“ISC”), a leading, multi-line program administrator that builds end-to-end insurance products utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) technology and analytics, today announced the launch of a unique new General Liability policy program geared towards “gig economy” contractors. The program provides contractors “by the job” flexibility, offering a variety of customizable options while delivering exceptional coverage at competitive rates. The program is made available through ISC’s AI-enabled platform, and underwritten by Markel Specialty, a division of Markel Corporation.
The program will be compatible with 30 different construction trades for a variety of classes beyond the typical handyman job, including but not limited to carpentry, electrical, painting, concrete, and janitorial work. Options include liability limits up to $1 million for 1-121 days and are geared specifically to the “gig economy” worker or the “weekend warrior,” with on-demand policy delivery and certification. With automated workflow, these policies can be bound in minutes using ISC’s advanced proprietary online platform, while payments are made seamless through digital payment applications.
“We are thrilled to partner with Markel and leverage our AI-technology and data capabilities to expand ISC’s platform for this growing segment of contractors and provide them with more flexibility and options on shorter-term projects,” said Matthew Grossberg, CEO of Integrated Specialty Coverages. “Markel has an excellent reputation, and we look forward to their support in delivering this product through our robust platform.”
