6 Tips to Get the Most Out of the Applied Net Exchange

August 29, 2019

By: Applied Communications

Open daily throughout Applied Net 2019, the Applied Net Exchange provides the opportunity for you to discover new Applied products, network with your peers and industry experts, and see the latest vendor and insurer technologies and products.

This year, the Applied Net Exchange will be the biggest ever, with more than 100 exhibitors and our largest exhibit floor yet.

To make navigating the Applied Net Exchange easier, here are 6 tips to help you stay organized and make the most of your visits:

  1. Plan Ahead – Identify Exhibitors You Want to Meet
    Check out the list of 2019 exhibitors and decide which companies you’d most like to meet with. Are there vendors that your business would like to learn more about? Are there exhibitors your business already has relationships with? Make a list of any questions you have for them and be sure to stop by their booths to learn about the latest vendor and insurer products and technologies.

  2. Bring Your Contact Information
    Don’t forget your business cards. Industry peers, Applied staff, Applied Client Network members and exhibitors are ready and willing to network with you so have your business cards handy to exchange contact information. Or, the Applied Net 2019 mobile app makes networking even easier. See the next tip…

  3. Use the Applied Net 2019 App
    With the Applied Net 2019 app, you’ll have all of the resources you need at your fingertips to successfully navigate the conference. You can manage your session schedule, network with peers and exhibitors, view conference venue maps, and more – conveniently from your phone or tablet. Download the Applied Net 2019 app on the Apple App Store (iOS™) or Google Play™ (Android™) to get the most out of your conference experience.

  4. Experience New Applied Technology
    At the Applied Net Exchange, you can meet with Applied software experts at the Applied booth to demo the latest Applied innovations, or schedule a one-on-one meeting with a support specialist. Below are some questions to think about ahead of time to help narrow down which products you should check out:

    • Are there technology solutions available that can automate communications from insurers directly into my management system?
      Suggestion: If you are a U.S. agency interested in solutions to increase efficiency and save your staff time, don’t miss the IVANS Insurance Solutions booth. IVANS solutions enable U.S.-based agents to seamlessly connect to insurers and MGAs by a single, efficient workflow for information exchange that reduces manual processes, so agents can deliver faster client service. Stop by to demo IVANS complimentary solutions to discover how you can access more markets and automate servicing.
    • Am I still using the best Applied agency or brokerage management solution for my business?
       Stop by the Applied booth for a demo of the latest version of Applied Epic®, the fastest growing and most widely used management system in the world chosen by more agencies and brokerages to manage their P&C and benefits business in a single application. Applied will be announcing new capabilities at the conference that you don’t want to miss!
    • Do I have multi-channel service capabilities that enable my staff to meet today’s consumer expectations?
       At the Applied Net Exchange, you can demo technology solutions that enable mobility for your customers and staff. For example, Applied Mobile® connects insurance producers and brokers in the field to information in their management system via a mobile app, enabling them to sell more business for increased profitability. Consider an online self-service portal like Applied CSR24® to provide your clients with 24/7 access to their information. You can demo both at the Applied booth.
    • We have massive amounts of data but does our current technology truly provide data-driven insights that enable us to make quicker, more informed, actionable business decisions?
       If you’ve heard about big data and understand its importance but find it challenging to actually move from data to insights, stop by the Applied booth and ask for an Applied Analytics™ demo. Applied Analytics is the first insurance data analytics solution built for independent insurance agents and brokers that provides access to multiple levels of analysis on key performance indicators, book of business, employee operations and insurer relationships.

  5. Don’t Miss the Applied Client Network Booth
    The Applied Client Network is the only authorized user group for Applied Systems software. The network assists member agencies and brokerages in driving Applied product system use to increase business value through communication, education and advocacy. More than 55 affiliated local and virtual chapters give members the opportunity to network and take advantage of training materials, seminars and membership support with other users in their area. Simply put, Applied Client Network facilitates “users helping users.” Stop by their booth to learn more or visit the Applied Client Network website.

  6. Last But Not Least, Learn All You Can
    The most important thing that you should take away from the Applied Net Exchange or Applied Net conference as a whole is education – whether new tools, insights, or best practices, putting what you learn to work at your business will help you succeed and grow.

As we like to say, “What happens in Vegas, DOESN’T stay in Vegas.” Instead, the insights and best practices you learn for using Applied solutions return home with you so you can share your knowledge and improve your business.
