Insly will help Polish insurance agents and brokers become more competitive

Published

Black Pearls VC has invested PLN 2.94 million (EUR 700k) in Insly, a company that created an innovative software supporting insurance agents and brokers in effective management of sales and customer service activities. The transaction has an international character: our co-investors in the round of nearly PLN 9.2 million (EUR 2.2 million) are: Concentric Ventures and London Co-Investment Fund. Insly is already present in many European countries - including Britain, Lithuania and Latvia and has been founded in Estonia.

Insly significantly increases the efficiency of insurance agents and brokers by automation of  sales and policy service processes. It is the only independent IT tool in Poland addressed to insurance intermediaries, enabling calculating of insurance premiums in various insurance companies, comparing offers and issuing a policy with a single click. Insly is integrated with: Generali, Gothaer, Uniqa, Warta, HDI, Allianz, Proama and InterRisk among others. Insly also allows end-users to better understand insurance products by improving the transparency of the policy process.

These assumptions are in line with the requirements of the Directive of the European Parliament and the EU Council on Insurance Distribution which is currently coming in force in Poland. Insly is also fully compatible with the requirements of the General Regulation on Personal Data Protection (RODO).

Piotr Bartos, Country Manager at Insly.

Representatives of Insly see a huge development opportunity in the digitization of the insurance sales market in Poland.

The Polish insurance market is large, but very fragmented, and the need to implement IT tools is high.  Thanks to the investor’s support, we will expand the list of insurance companies offering their products via our platform and we will add a number of functionalities, like intelligent optimization of commission settlements. We hope that Polish insurance agents and  brokers will be building their competitiveness with our help and with the support of Black Pearls VC, we will quickly build a strong position on the Polish market.

Risto Rossar, CEO, Insly.
