- Connection to leading Comparative Rating systems

“Cognition+ is fulfilling the ideals of brokers, carriers and key industry stakeholders who want users working in their own company solutions and completing transactions on behalf of the policyholders through direct data exchange. This ensures the optimal experience for everyone, while minimizing implementation and training efforts, seamlessly introducing a more cost-effective process that eliminates third party portals, email, and double entry”, Matthew Scott, President & CEO of Cognition+. “This is another milestone for our clients and further justification for the digital transformation we have been enabling across our insurance community.
