Challenges for surety brokers and agents
Surety brokers and agents find that most public construction bonds are still being produced manually. However, the industry is rapidly changing.
Surety is a highly specialized line of insurance with a big focus on construction. It belongs to a small, concentrated industry.
The construction industry is one of the least digital industries, thus creating a resistance to electronic bonding.
The majority of surety bond processes have not leveraged automation largely due to job protection by public employees who manage them.
