Agency billed payments and premium financing have always been pain points for my office as well as MANY others. I’m thrilled to have Ascend handle two important items in our tech stack. Ascend helps us to be significantly more efficient and profitable for E&S and agency billed accounts. Our insureds appreciate the streamlined experience, too!

I can't express enough how slick and simple this is. I've been telling people forever that I just want to be able to send customers a link so they can click a few buttons and it's done. Now with Ascend we can do that.

Ascend's seamless online checkout, handling of agency bill transactions and customized reminders will save agents countless hours. I love working with your team!

We’re often put in a tough spot: choosing between a carrier that's the best fit for our client, but has an antiquated payments process or a carrier that's tech-advanced, but not the best fit from a coverage standpoint. Ascend is the first to actually solve that dilemma for us. We no longer have to tell customers that want premium financing to put their credit cards away, fill out an application, and send a check.
