FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Patriot National Insurance Group, a leading provider of workers' compensation insurance solutions, announced they launched QuoteExpert, a key module of the WorkersCompExpert suite and a state-of-the-art front end portal developed by Vikaran Solutions.
QuoteExpert is part of the WorkersCompExpert™ ("WCE") suite of web based systems Patriot National plans to implement fully in the near future.

- Ability to quote, rate, and email proposals using an iPadR and other tablet and mobile device, in addition to offering web access to agents
Leslie Lewis, Patriot's Vice President of Marketing, is excited about bringing a product to the broker/agent community that will make their work with Patriot more efficient. Ms. Lewis said, "I am now able to bring my iPad into agent's office and give them a quote within minutes. Vikaran QuoteExpert allows quick, easy and secure access and enables collaboration with agents when determining the risk profile for business we want to write. There really is nothing else like this in the marketplace."
Patriot's Founder and CEO, Steven M. Mariano, expressed similar sentiments: "Patriot National is excited to be on the cutting edge of technology and the first insurance carrier to offer Vikaran QuoteExpert. The use of QuoteExpert continues Patriot National's commitment to customer service by giving our agents and staff the capability to do their job more efficiently."
