Learn all about Fenris and what this tool means to you as an agent.

Updated over a week ago

"Fenris" is a paid integration add-on, offered through SALT, used to perform Data Pulls for vehicle and driver data. It allows users to immediately connect to an existing third-party platform and start pulling the necessary information with ease.

Fenris integrates into your existing SALT platform seamlessly and helps store and retrieve the required data.

Get started using Fenris:

Simply enable the Fenris Integration add-on to begin extracting the data you need with ease.

  1. From your left-hand sidebar, select the Integrations option.

  2. Toggle the "Fenris" switch to the ON position (green).


What Are the Benefits of Using Fenris?

With this integration tool, agents can collect extensive vehicle and driver data that can significantly enhance the decision-making process for an independent insurance agent.

The vehicle data collected from Fenris can include details like the vehicle's make, model, year, and VIN. This allows the agent to understand the vehicle's features, safety ratings, susceptibility to damage, and repair costs, which are all critical factors in determining insurance premiums.

Can I turn Fenris on/off on certain templates?

At this time, there's not an option to turn Fenris on/off on specific templates. We do have this request on our radar and are moving towards the option of being able to do this in the future.

Can I print/download a Fenris report?

While the ability to print/download a Fenris report is doable, this function is not currently optimized within the SALT platform.

We intend to improve on this in the future, but at the time, you may experience some funky formatting/cropping when printing or downloading a Fenris report.

What does Fenris cost?

SALT Propel subscribers will receive a recurring allotment of 20 Data Pull credits per month. Once consumed, any additional Data Pulls will be charged to your monthly invoice at $1.10/per pull.

If you're not subscribed to the SALT Propel plan, Fenris (unlike Estated) will bill for every pull unless one of the following criteria is met:

  • There is an error message present

  • An incorrect address is associated with the pull

  • Developer data (addresses that don't exist/won't standardize) is used

Why doesn't Fenris return data in my state?

Certain states have restrictions due to the privacy/information laws specific to that state. The restricted states that affect the auto API are as follows:

  • California

  • Hawaii

  • New Hampshire

  • New York

  • Pennsylvania

  • Virginia

  • Oklahoma

Note: There are some state-specific dependencies that influence the information able to be collected through data pulls. If you experience issues associated with Fenris reports/data pulls, please reach out to our support team from the "Help & Support" tab or via email; we'll be happy to take a look.

What does the "override" option do?

SALT's "override" option simply ensures that SALT allows the request to happen even when the state is restricted. By selecting "override," you're stating: “I know it’s restricted, but try anyway."

Why didn't the Fenris report include all driver's license names & numbers?

The Fenris report will include license plate information, which is important for states like Massachusetts as they require plate info for binding. The report does not, however, include the names or license numbers of individuals under 18.

At the top of the Fenris report, the insured is asked “Are there any 16 or 17-year-olds in the household?”, which provides the answer to the aforementioned question.

What does "Success - No VIN" mean?

When a Fenris report returns "Success - No VIN," it means they've found drivers & verified the address, but were unable to find any VIN numbers.
