NEW YORK, Aug. 24, 2023 - Insurtech leader Kalepa announced today that NEC Specialty (NEC) has selected Kalepa's Copilot underwriting workbench to improve underwriting outcomes and drive consistently profitable growth for their carrier partners as they build from the ground up.

NEC, Robert Mangi's recently launched NY construction and contractors program, is deploying Copilot to efficiently maximize confidence that quoted policies have no hidden exposures that lead to unexpected claims. Copilot's ability to rapidly and comprehensively review construction practices and contractors enables NEC to avoid foreseeable losses while maintaining a high rate of speed and customer satisfaction.

"As a new program, Copilot has been invaluable to our efforts to ramp up quickly while providing an outstanding level of underwriting diligence" said Mangi, CEO of NEC. "Tri-state contractor policies can be notoriously difficult to underwrite: Copilot ensures that we have comprehensively reviewed every risk and identified every predictable exposure before policy issuance."

NEC's engagement with Kalepa signals NEC's commitment to providing cutting-edge products and services, centered on a personal approach and exceptional underwriting quality supported by Copilot's powerful underwriting technology.

"NEC has grown tremendously in a short time, and we are delighted to be a part of that rapid growth," said Paul Monasterio, CEO of Kalepa. "Rob's track record in the industry is outstanding, and we're honored to be the partner of choice to power underwriting outcomes at NEC."
