XILO helps insurance agencies compete against rising digital competition with an easy to use, fully customizable software platform they can use to engage with their customers, provide instant insurance quotes and automate sales workflows. As part of the next generation of agency technology, XILO is aiming to disrupt old muti-billion dollar incumbents who control the space by providing better technology with better experiences that fit the agencies needs today.
Why is your company the best option to solve the problem you're solving?
XILO is the only insurance forms solution focused on integrating insurance specific solutions, user experience, and customization. Other solutions are not customizable, bad for insurance shoppers, or not tailored to insurance. Also, XILO is built by both an ex-insurance agency owner and a tech guy who have also been life-long friends. Together, we make a powerful combination of domain and technical expertise.
What nuggets of info make you interesting? Why do people care about what you're doing?
Now more than ever, insurance agencies need to immerse their businesses into the digital world. If agencies continued conducting business like mom and pop shops they'd surely lose a lot of market share over the next two decades. But with the right technology, they can reverse disruption and keep the lions share of the market.
What else do you want us to know?
