About Bulldog Insurance

Headquartered in Georgia, Bulldog Insurance Agency was founded in 1992 and since has grown to write insurance in 41 states with over 35 national carriers. Focused on being a relationship-driven and passion-filled agency to provide excellent, honest, and immediate services to their clients, Bulldog chose Ascend to increase their agency’s efficiency, especially for their commercial lines business.


Commercial trucking insurance is a unique and challenging space due the range of client sizes (from independent trucker to large fleet) with frequency of endorsements and cancelations – this significantly increases resources needed to collect payments, offer premium financing, and reconcile books at the end of month.

End-to-End Solution

Instead of a fragmented solution with a network of partners to support agency bill, Ascend is the single solution that not only simplifies agency bill workflows, but also consolidates all the data into a single dashboard. This provides Bulldog Insurance with real-time transparency into the status of all invoices, endorsements, cancelations, refunds, and carrier payables – allowing them to better serve their clients and operate as an agency.


Increased premium financing revenue by 10%
Easy Workflow = More Opportunities for Revenue

Account managers are able to create checkout links that offer both premium finance and pay in full options – saving time on both the “how do you want to pay” conversation as well as drafting premium finance agreements. With Ascend, we were able to offer both payment options for all their clients, no matter their size, without any extra effort, resulting in a 10% increase in revenue from financing.
