American National


iPipeline® announced that American National has launched iGO®, the technology company’s digital e-App solution within its end-to-end ecosystem, to enable the insurance carrier to streamline its distribution and further improve the ease of doing business for insurance agents and brokerage general agencies (BGAs). Supporting multiple product lines, iGO has been successfully adopted by dozens of insurance carriers, hundreds of distributors, and tens of thousands of agents.

iPipeline’s iGO—one of the industry’s leading e-Application tools—will help American National to strengthen its long-term plan for continued growth and expansion within the BGAs market as it strives to build one of the most successful insurance companies in the U.S.

  • Reduce cycle times and increase placement ratios.
  • And accelerate the overall application process.
