Holly Bohn - Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications Jul 1, 2021 11:48:03 AM

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--()--The Fortegra Group, LLC (“Fortegra”), a global specialty insurer and subsidiary of Tiptree Inc. (NASDAQ: TIPT), today announced the expansion of their partnership with Badcock Home Furniture &more (“Badcock”).

For almost 15 years, Fortegra has been providing Badcock customers with both credit insurance and furniture service contracts. By replacing the previous provider of service contracts on appliances & electronics, Fortegra will now be the exclusive credit insurance and protection plan provider across all 382 Badcock stores.

“We decided to consolidate our product offerings with Fortegra based on their approach to the business and the way in which they value the partnership. They not only listen to our business needs, but more importantly, are very intuitive to our customers’ needs, and that is where the magic happens,” said Badcock’s Vice President of Retail Operations and Chief Credit Officer Mitchell Stiles. “We are in the relationship business, and we want the customer to feel comfortable with their home furnishing purchases. Fortegra’s Concierge service team enhanced and personalized the claim process, which gives us the confidence that our customers are in good hands.”

“Over the last few years, retail has evolved dramatically, and we are always thinking about how to make sure service contracts keep up. So we worked closely with Badcock to reimagine their service contract process. From sales to claims, we created a simplified, multi-channel approach that better meets consumer needs,” said Holly Bohn, Chief Marketing Officer at Fortegra.
