Our story, your success
Our roots in a small, family-owned insurance company perfectly positioned Allied Solutions for today’s growth. In 2001, two entrepreneurial insurance companies merged to form Allied Solutions. With over 40 years of experience in the financial services industry, we are focused on helping more than 4,000 credit unions, banks, finance companies, and auto dealer clients grow their bottom line, protect their business and consumers, and evolve to stay ahead of the competition. Allied Solutions became an independently operated subsidiary of Securian Financial in 2004 and we are proud to have the financial backing of a Fortune 500 company.
Our business model is designed with your success in mind: Deliver best-in-class solutions paired with exceptional customer service, tailored to the needs of each client to help them grow their business, and more effectively manage risk.
We are more than a vendor. We are solution finders and problem solvers
In North America, we are the leader in insurance, lending, marketing, and risk management solutions. With approximately 200 solutions to choose from, our solutions meet a variety of needs financial institutions face to enhance revenue, manage risk, and remain competitive.
As consultants and problem solvers, we listen and keep our clients’ needs at the forefront. Because of the breadth and depth of our product suite and our relationships, we can see around corners, analyze market conditions, anticipate our clients’ needs before they even know they have them, then offer industry leading solutions.
When we see a need for a solution arising in the industry, we source and vet the top partners. If a solution doesn’t exist in the marketplace, we build it ourselves. For example, in 2019 we saw an upcoming need for credit unions and banks to implement an ancillary product refund solution. Since this solution didn’t exist and the need was great, we invested $2 million and unparalleled talent into building REFUND Plus®, an optimized product refund solution.
People, processes, and technology:
Allied Solutions has 1,300 diverse employees working in strategically placed offices nationwide. Allied has earned and maintained the highly esteemed BenchmarkPortal Center of Excellence Award for several years, as well as the Forbes’ recognition for Best Midsize Employer.
Allied’s unparalleled investments in technology, compliance, and information security are the keystones of who we are and what we bring to the table, and our solutions are always best-in-class and protect business’s brands and reputations. This culture of innovation drives our continuous and advanced efforts toward digital transformation. Our advancements in data analytics give financial institutions access to technology platforms and integrations that would otherwise be too labor-intensive and costly to build in-house.
Allied Solutions is proud of the entrepreneurial spirit that built our company and still drives us today. We look forward to creating more solutions through strong and successful partnerships.
