Examples of Vlocity Insurance customers
ABD Insurance, a top 100 insurance broker in America, sells all different lines of insurance across multiple carriers and they use Salesforce. They liked it but they just couldn’t do all the things they wanted. Vlocity came in and deployed Vlocity Insurance in just 45 days. It was put on top of ABD Insurance’s Salesforce implementation and connected to the back office system. ABD Insurance now has a single view of their customers across all business lines. They are able to see customer records and easily identify for instance homeowners who do not have car or health insurance at ABD Insurance. They can see where the white spots are. If a customer calls in with a claim against an insurance policy, ABD Insurance can handle it all within Vlocity/Salesforce, allowing a much better service translating to a higher net promoter score. In short, Vlocity allows ABD insurance to get more out of their Salesforce platform.
America’s largest Mutual Life Insurance Company, New York Life, announced in December 2016 that they will deploy Vlocity Insurance to enrich Client Relationships and improve Insurance Agent Effectiveness.

Who is Vlocity?
The leaders in CRM for nearly two decades started Vlocity to continue a lifelong mission: to transform how companies engage with their customers. Vlocity was founded in early 2014 by Graig Ramsey and David Schmaier, but incorporates more than 30 years of experience. In late 1980, Craig hired Marc Benioff to work at Oracle. David Schmaier and Tom Siebel worked there also. When Tom left to start Siebel Systems, Graig and David joined him. Now at Vlocity Craig is chairman and David is CEO. Two of the Vlocity board members, Mark Armenante and Young Sohn, also previously worked at Siebel Systems. Together, they built a huge CRM company that basically created the vertical CRM software market. Vlocity has raised 42.8 million USD in a funding round led by Salesforce Ventures, with participation from Accenture. In 2016 the company raised an additional $50 million in funding from Sutter Hill Ventures and Salesforce Ventures.
“When I go to a men’s store, I am going to pick the one that’s tailored. Companies want that too. They want the software that’s pre-configurated to the best practises. If you can get that, why wouldn’t you want that? David Schmaier, CEO & Founder
