Frequently Asked

We frequently get asked the following questions.
Feel free to reach out to us at if you want to learn more!

Why are you building Herald?

We want to help insurance carriers and their distribution partners build amazing experiences for businesses buying insurance. Our infrastructure helps carriers and their partners use technology to improve how they serve their customers.

As a carrier, can I control who can see my quotes?

Yes. Carriers still control the relationship with their distribution partners. You always know where business comes from, control the appointment process, and decide who gets access.

Are you a digital brokerage?

No. We don’t give risk advice or negotiate with carriers over terms and coverage. Distributors maintain their relationships with the carriers they connect to through Herald.

Are you a comparative rater?

No. We don’t sell workflow solutions to brokers (although some of our partners do). We provide an API for developers to connect their technology to the insurance ecosystem.

Are you a carrier or MGA?

No. We don’t sell our own insurance products. We help carriers and MGAs reach more customers and brokers with their products online.

I quickly hit the ground running and loved working with Herald’s API. They’ve hidden the nuances of integrations across various carriers and provide development resources that are easy to understand.”

I put every renewal through the rater powered by Herald. It's so easy to get and compare multiple General Liability quotes that I sometimes think I'm doing something wrong!”
