Patriot National To Launch Insurance Industry’s First Competitive Risk Management Online Marketplace

Patriot Risk Consultants (PRC), a subsidiary of Patriot National, Inc. (NYSE: PN), today announced the upcoming launch of PN BidExpert, a first of its kind competitive online marketplace to connect underwriters and risk managers with loss control engineers.

Patriot National, Inc. is a leading provider of technology and outsourced services to the insurance industry. The company was founded by Fort Lauderdale based entrepreneur Steven Michael Mariano.

PN BidExpert seamlessly engages, matches and connects underwriters and risk managers with a large marketplace of certified and prescreened loss control engineers. Underwriters submit loss control survey requests to the online platform where a sophisticated algorithm matches jobs with available independent service providers. These providers are notified in real time via push notifications of all jobs they are qualified to complete. Once the winning bid has been selected and the engineer has completed a job, PRC reviews the loss control report for quality assurance.

“PN BidExpert is powered by Patriot Technology Solutions and exemplifies our commitment to invest in leading edge technology that optimizes service quality while simultaneously reducing time and expense for our clients,” said Steven M. Mariano, CEO of Patriot National. “Our marketplace will streamline insurance underwriters and risk managers’ ability to quickly obtain quality loss control reports at the best market price while increasing visibility and access to job requests for loss control engineers. Within the PN BidExpert community, service quality will be rewarded by a rating system completed by all parties. We expect hundreds of qualified and screened engineers to be active at launch,” added Mariano.

The PN BidExpert marketplace will offer participants complete transparency and control through an easy-to-use dashboard. Underwriters, brokers or risk managers can submit standard or customized assessment surveys to the platform and all reports are quality assured by engineering experts. Underwriting and risk management communities interested in scheduling a BidExpert demo should contact Armand Fernandez at afernandez@patnat.com.
