The services included with VirtGate will exclude any customization of any screens, reports, concepts, needs analysis, etc. and activity / management reports from the Novinsoft database.
Tim Fitzpatrick, President of CoVirt said “We are delivering a solution to one of the top 3 problems faced by advisors today. Carrier illustration software has long been a source of frustration for advisors – difficulties with installation are legendary and advisors need to repeat the slow process of keying in client information for each and every carrier they want to present. By sending the client data directly to the Novinsoft web based illustration portal, we eliminate both the hassles of locally installed software and the wasteful keying of data, and provide a single interface for actual carrier endorsed illustrations.
Neil Menear, President of Novinsoft said “Our core business is as an outsource provider that builds and maintains new business and in-force sales illustration and related software. We hope that advisors of CoVirt’s more than 50 MGAs expected to become frequent users provide tremendous exposure to a new way of doing things. Those carriers in early will be deemed ‘easier to do business with’ which should lead to increased sales compared to just a proprietary approach. We hope all carriers active in the brokerage market will join us in integrating systems and services.”
Fitzpatrick concluded "If tools are provided so that the advisor can sell more, then everyone wins!"
