Since its founding, FBN® has revolutionized the Ag sector by using innovative technology to improve data transparency and accessibility, and streamline the online shopping experience for farmers and ranchers.  Now we’re applying that same innovative approach to our crop and livestock insurance coverage. Guided by a Farmers First® mindset, our goal is to build technology that makes our policyholders’ lives easier and our insurance agents even more effective.  FBN Insurance 2022 Tech Advancements  Improved Acreage Reporting Tool We spent the first half of 2022 working on the initial launch of an improved, increasingly efficient acreage reporting tool. Designed to provide a simpler, more streamlined acreage report generation experience by leveraging a farmer’s precision data and policy information, progress on this project will continue into 2023.  PRF & Apiculture Insurance Risk Management Decision Tool In the second half of the year, our team developed a Pasture, Rangeland and Forage and Apiculture Insurance Risk Management Decision Tool . This proprietary tool empowers our agents with the unmatched ability to optimize our policyholders’ coverage to fit their needs. By taking into account the producer’s personal preferences and risk tolerance, the tool delivers a customized solution designed to fit the producer’s unique operational requirements. Get a Sneak Peek at Upcoming 2023 Insurance Tech Launches We’ll be sharing an exciting sneak peek of future insurance technology launches to attendees at the upcoming FBN Farmer2Farmer (F2F) event this month. With interactive mockups of our next project — which is already in the works! — ready to share at F2F, we’d love to hear what you like, what you don’t like, and how we can improve our designs directly from the expert: you.  Our FBN insurance customers will get front row seats to see the new tools we’re going to build in the coming year, both directly for our customer facing tools and indirectly through the improvements our technology will provide for our agents.
