GRAPEVINE, Texas, May 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- SALT is an InsurTech start-up focused on meeting the demand for a modern way to buy home and auto insurance from independent agents (IAs). By enhancing the prospect data acquisition process, SALT speeds up the time it takes to move a prospect through the sales pipeline, while also equipping the IA with ways to connect with referral partners.
Thank you to each of our investors for taking a stake in advancing our vision to build modern technology solutions that solve real problems. Jonathan Simmons, SALT Co-Founder and CEO defines his ideology regarding technology in this way.
"I believe design should have a purpose, products should solve problems, and the greatest ideas are those born from necessity and collaboration."
SALT was built with this philosophy in mind.
Plans for the Funds: To build out sales and distribution by hiring 4-6 new team members, continue product development by listening to our agent customers about what their short- and long-term needs are, and to market SALT by attending industry conferences.
- In Q1 2022, the SALT team grew the agent subscriber base by 40%.
- Independent Insurance Agents of Texas (IIAT) announced its endorsement of SALT.
- SALT integrated with two main comparative raters — PL Rating — a Vertafore product and EZLynx — an Applied Systems product.
- SALT integrated with two big data partners making the data collection process seamless for the end user, the IA prospect — Fenris which gathers VIN #s as well as household drivers and Estated which gathers real estate property data.
As a result of the raise, SALT is thrilled to have welcomed two new board members: Robert Nitsche and Casey Nelson. They both bring real and practical industry knowledge, experience, and networks that we can immediately apply.
