Integration Notes:

  • Since ACORD Codes do not exist for Passive Restraint or Anti-Lock Brake, the codes used by AMS 360 & TurboRater may not always match. Therefore, Passive Restraint and/or Anti-Lock Brake information will always need to be verified after any integration occurs. When a policy is first transferred from AMS 360 to TurboRater, use the symbol generator (on the year, make or model fields) to pull in the symbol, passive restraint & other information regarding the vehicle. Anti-lock brake requires manual entry. Once the quote is stored, the information will be retained in the quote. Please refer to the TurboRater on-line help for assistance.
  • Cell phone and email address do not bridge
  • ITC TurboRater has a limit of 6 Drivers and 6 Vehicles per Personal Auto policy
  • When bridging from AMS360 to TurboRater, you must already have TurboRater open and logged in.
