GO BOP launches positive change for small businesses, agents writing GuideOne Insurance

Business Owners Policies quoted and bound in 10 minutes across eight business categories

DES MOINES (Nov. 13, 2018) – GuideOne Insurance launched an online quoting portal speeding agent business in a growing insurance segment. GO BOP ℠, GuideOne’s Business Owners Policy portal, delivers instant quotes and binds business in eight small business categories in as little as 10 minutes.

GuideOne now writes business owners policies for churches, contractors, distributors, offices, real estate, restaurants, retail and service businesses. Optional coverage for cyber is available and includes cyber exposures like identity recovery, data breach, computer attacks and extortion in one form.

Agents will know a client’s eligibility within fewer than 15 questions on two screens thanks to GO BOP’s third-party integrations that pre-fill data and support underwriting decision-making.

"Agents asked GuideOne for expanded market variety and a more efficient process,” said GuideOne’s Small Business team leader Stephanie Grobin. “GuideOne delivered by adding small business categories and developing a best-in-class online portal experience to expedite agent business."

GO BOP launches in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and West Virginia today, expanding nationally in 2019 to diversify GuideOne’s portfolio and increase market share. The 70+-year-old insurer was founded with a commitment to social responsibility and says the focus on Main Street businesses is the next step in transforming the GuideOne brand.

“The GO BOP launch demonstrates GuideOne’s commitment to innovation that honors our history serving those who serve others, said Grobin.”
