BOSTON, Dec. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ask Kodiak, an API platform providing real-time appetite and eligibility for commercial lines insurance companies, managing general agencies (MGAs), wholesalers, and agents, is pleased to announce a partnership with Commercial Insurance Partner LLC (CIP) to accurately share carrier appetite and eligibility information for dramatically improved quote speed and conversion rates. Based in Moore, Oklahoma, CIP delivers a bolt-on efficiency solution through digital partnerships focused on lead acquisition, conversion, and risk appetite management for commercial lines insurance companies and utilized largely by sales centers. This partnership with Ask Kodiak is important to CIP since real-time knowledge of carrier appetite is critical to CIP’s ability to evaluate risk and match customers with the best commercial insurance partner.“No one understands commercial appetite like Ask Kodiak,” said Jessica Chitwood-Long, president of CIP. “Without a complete understanding of a carrier’s appetite at any given point in time, it would be impossible for us to make recommendations and create efficiencies for our clients. We appreciate the unmatched accuracy Ask Kodiak brings to the table.”In the rapidly changing world of commercial insurance, accurate underwriting is made even more difficult by rapidly changing eligibility rules in the insurance industry. Lack of real-time insight into carrier appetite by distribution partners compounds the problem by generating no quote situations and taking time away from more desirable business. Unfortunately, most carriers lack a viable digital mechanism for sharing appetite with partners submitting risks to the company’s call centers.Utilizing the Ask Kodiak platform, insurance companies can store, update, and share appetite and eligibility information with any distribution partner via APIs for maximum efficiency, underwriting accuracy, quote-to-bind speed, and conversion rates. And, Ask Kodiak’s new industry standard for high-definition classification of commercial insurance risks, NAICS HD, utilizes all levels of the NAICS hierarchy, up to and including the sub-descriptions associated with six-digit national industry codes.“CIP is building a very effective operation to supply carrier call centers with the exact type of customers they want to write,” said Michael Albert, co-founder of Ask Kodiak. “Ask Kodiak uses the most precise and granular classification code system – NAICS HD – to ensure our carrier partners efficiently classify and underwrite profitable risks.”About Ask Kodiak Ask Kodiak helps insurance carriers organize commercial insurance. The API-based technology platform that helps agents make product selections based on appetite and eligibility provided by insurance carriers wherever it’s needed.

The Margherita is the undisputed heavyweight champion of pizza. It's the pizza that any pizza chef would order to get the measure of a new pizzeria because there is nothing to hide behind; no snazzy flavours to mask the quality of your ingredients, dough and skill with the oven. Here is Thom Elliot and James Elliot's recipe from their new book, “Pizza.” Pizza Margherita FOR THE TOMATO SAUCE Makes enough for 4 pizzas — 1 x 14 ounce (400 grams) can of San Marzano (or any good-quality Italian) tomatoes — a good pinch of sea salt Method: In a large bowl, crush the tomatoes by hand. (This is the old-school way they used to do it in Naples, and for good reason. If you put the tomatoes in a food processor you end up with a depressingly smooth sauce that lacks texture.) Once you’ve crushed the hell out of your tomatoes, add a pinch of salt to taste and that’s it! Pure, unadulterated tomato goodness. FOR THE PIZZA Makes 1 pizza — 1 ball of Neapolitan pizza dough (see below) — 3 ounces (80 grams) tomato sauce — 4–5 fresh basil leaves — Parmesan, for grating — 1 tablespoon olive oil — 3 ounces (80 grams) fior di latte mozzarella, torn or sliced Method: 1. Preheat the grill (broiler) to its absolute highest setting, and place a large, ovenproof frying pan (skillet) over a high heat and let it get screaming hot. 2. Meanwhile, flatten and stretch the dough ball to make a 10-inch pizza base. 3. Lay the pizza base flat in the hot, dry frying pan, then, using a small ladle (or a large spoon), spoon the tomato sauce onto the middle of the pizza. Using the back of the ladle, make concentric circles to spread the sauce, beginning in the middle and finishing 1ˆin from the edge. 4. Next, sprinkle over the basil (it will burn if put on last). Grate over a little Parmesan and drizzle with the olive oil. 5. Once the base of the pizza has browned, about 1–2 minutes, add your mozzarella, then place the frying pan under the grill on the highest shelf. 6. Once the crust has taken on some colour, about 1–2 minutes, the pizza is ready! Making Neapolitan Pizza Dough: With the knowledge of each ingredient and the important roles they play, we can now make Neapolitan pizza dough. Tip: Weigh out all your ingredients before you start. Ingredients: — 35 ounces (1000 grams) ‘00’ flour (Caputo ‘blue’ is recommend) — 2/3 tablespoon (2 grams) fresh yeast — 21 fluid ounces (620 millilitres) tepid water — 1 ounce (30 grams) fine sea salt Method 1. Make a mountain of flour in the middle of the table. Using your fist, make a deep well in the middle of the flour, exposing the surface of the table (turning your mountain into a moon crater). 2. Crumble the yeast into the tepid water. Use your good hand to mash up the yeast in the water until it has dissolved. (Keep the other hand dry for taking Instagram photos to show off to your friends.) Fill your crater of flour with a third of the yeast/water mix. Using your fingertips, start making very small circular motions to combine the flour and water. 3. Start dragging in some more flour to the mix, by ‘undercutting’ the walls of the crater with your fingertips. As you do this the mixture in the middle will become thicker. Once it reaches the consistency of porridge you need to add a bit more water. Don’t let it get too thick; if it starts to form a dough too soon it becomes difficult to incorporate the rest of the water. Keep dragging in a little flour to thicken the mix, then pouring a little bit more water in to loosen it, until you have all the water used up. 4. Sprinkle the sea salt over the mixture while it’s still very wet to ensure it dissolves and disperses evenly throughout the dough. Now use both hands to push the remaining flour from the outside into the middle. Fold and press the mix until all the flour is absorbed and a dough comes together. If you have a dough scraper it really helps get everything off the table, but you can improvise with a paint scraper, spatula or knife. 5. Work the gluten by kneading the dough. Use the heel of your hand to stretch out the dough and roll it back up, while the other hand acts like an anchor. You’ll be able to see the strands of gluten stretching, breaking, being put back together and becoming stronger. Continue this for about 8 minutes until the dough becomes smooth and glossy. It should also feel tighter and elastic. 6. Let the dough have a 10-minute rest to relax the gluten. Cover the dough with a damp cloth or some clingfilm (plastic wrap) to keep the air from drying it out. Then divide your bulk of dough into individual portions. We recommend 230g (8oz) dough balls for 10-inch pizzas. Ensure your dough balls are neatly shaped – pinched at the bottom and tight on the top – then place them in a tray or container 3cm (1in) apart. Cover with a tight lid or clingfilm (plastic wrap). 7. Now you can relax. The yeast will take over from here. Leave the dough at room temperature for approximately 6 hours until it expands to almost double its size, then store in the fridge overnight. The next day remove the dough from the fridge for 1–2 hours and bring it back to room temperature before making your pizzas. — Recipe excerpted with permission from “Pizza” by Thom Elliot and James Elliot, published by Quadrille in November 2020.

Spanish start-up Glovo expects revenue to double this year from last as lockdowns boost its quick delivery service of everything from curries to contact lenses, its co-founder Sacha Michaud told Reuters. Glovo, which clinched "unicorn" status a year ago when a cash injection led by Abu Dhabi fund Mubadala pushed its valuation past $1 billion, delivered groceries and medicines long before the coronavirus pandemic prompted rivals to expand beyond restaurant meals. "Consumer habits were ... changing slowly over time but this has accelerated the way consumers start using on-demand," Michaud said.
