About Convr: Commercial Insurance Carriers are falling short on delivering compelling customer experiences.

With Convr, commercial P&C insurers manage the underwriting process from submission to quote with an on-demand software platform with a built-in Artificial Intelligence decisioning engine, empowering them to make better decisions, faster.
