December 16, 2021

For years, the Commercial Lines quoting process has taken far too long. Agents have been stuck managing multiple systems and re-keying information into individual insurer portals. Consider the impact this is having on your business.

Switching between multiple, disparate systems can reduce staff productivity by as much as 30%.

This is valuable time your team could have spent serving or selling to customers. You also run the risk of losing business if the quote takes too long to come back from the insurer.

But it doesn’t have to be this way anymore.
