Insurance marketplace CoverHound is Intellirent’s best friend
US-based online insurance marketplace CoverHound has partnered with Intellirent, a rental marketing and tenant screening platform, reports Julie Muhn at Finovate.
The partnership will enable renters whose landlords use the Intellirent software suite to access quotes on renter’s insurance leveraging CoverHound’s insurance marketplace.
CoverHound says it offers renters transparency across policies while Intellirent benefits from the simplicity of a single partnership.
Corey Eckert, founder of Intellirent, says: “By partnering with CoverHound, we can eliminate the hassle of insurance shopping for renters while providing these agents with a streamlined process they can share with their new tenants.”
CoverHound was founded in 2010 to offer an insurance marketplace where consumers can shop around for auto, homeowners, renters, and life insurance.
In 2016, the company expanded to offer insurance for small businesses, providing a range of insurance options including worker’s compensation, liability, cyber insurance, and more.
Last autumn/fall, CoverHound expanded its network of partners and insurance carriers. The company works with various carriers including Chubb, Liberty Mutual, Hiscox, Progressive, biBerk, Safeco, Nationwide, Mercury, and Hartford Steam Boiler.
Headquartered in California, CoverHound has raised a total of $56 million.
