“Currently, 20,000 firms use Vertafore products and NetVU now represents all of them,” said Ambers. “We are focused on finding ways to engage with each and every one of our constituencies to enhance their experience with their Vertafore products.”
NetVU is an independent national member organization for the more than 20,000 insurance agencies, carriers and MGAs, and more than 150,000 users of Vertafore’s technology. The organization has 55 member-led local and virtual chapters.
