In 2019, new brokers found Advisr, added themselves quickly and easily onto Advisr. In addition, for some bigger brokerages, we've assisted in getting their entire brokerage onto Advisr.

Cyber Liability Insurance is designed to help protect you from claims and support your profitability in the event of a cyber breach or attack.

Public Liability insurance is there to provide protection if someone makes a claim against the insured, the business or its employees.

A business insurance pack can provide cover for your business premises and contents, against loss, damage, theft or financial loss from an insured interruption to the business.

In 2019, over 500 + brokers found Advisr and added themselves. Including insurance brokers from the US, Canada and the UK - even without a localised Advisr for those countries. Have we missed you?

Advisr continued to evolve 
New features released on Advisr in 2019
Brokers listed under Brokerages...
We created a hierarchy that enables a broker or AR to be listed within their brokerages and within their various networks and associations. Whilst changes like this may seem easy, there was a bit of complexity as we evolved the underlying data models within the Advisr systems. We will do more on this in 2020 to make managing your brokerage profile even easier.
New Brokerage pages with an updated look and feel‚ is your Brokerage up to date?
New brokerage pages were developed to highlight brokers that are based within the individual brokerage. This enables people to quickly and easily find contact details about your brokerage and to see the faces of the brokers that work within it. Hundreds of brokerages have optimised their brokerage profile to ensure customers can find and connect with them via Advisr.
New Network and Association Pages:
The Advisr Network & Association pages were developed so that customers could see if a broker or brokerage was part of a wider network or association. In addition, customers now have one place to find all the brokers and brokerages that are part of that particular network.  
Find an insurance broker by location pages:
With over 150+ dedicated location pages on Advisr, people can find a broker near them, wherever that might be! Helping people looking for an insurance broker in Sydney, insurance brokers in Dandenong, insurance brokers in Gold Coast and many many more. Oh, and individual brokers are matched to locations, so this features on a brokers profile page as well.

Advisr API - let Advisr Power your website or team pages:
Advisr has created an API to enable your website to be powered by and with your data from Advisr. Your team page is one place to start, so that when new people join your brokerage or network, your team page on your website (if it is built on the Advisr API) will add your new team members automatically. A great benefit that has started rolling out on brokerage websites across the country. Contact us to learn more and see how this could work for you.
Launched The Advisr Insurance Broker Awards We celebrated all that is great about Insurance Broking with the Advisr Insurance Broker Awards: The public scoured the industry to look for those insurance brokers who truly stand out in regards to thought leadership, professionalism and trustworthiness.
