Every minute we save in paperwork and waiting for quotes is time agents can use to serve their clients better
Carrollton, TX (PRWEB) April 18, 2006 –
Networked Insurance Agents Inc., a Strongwood Insurance Holdings Company, will provide commercial insurance agents nationwide the ability to receive quotes from multiple carriers online, in minutes, using single entry multiple carrier interface, or SEMCI, software from Quantum Integrated Systems, Inc., of Carrollton.
Networked Insurance Agents, of Grass Valley, Calif., has licensed Quantum’s QSEMCI™ product to offer near-instantaneous quotes from a variety of carriers for business owners package, or BOP, workers compensation and commercial auto insurance from a variety of insurance carriers on its website under its brand NLink CL.
“We conducted an extensive search for the right software,” Networked Chief Information Officer David Brandeis, said, “then Quantum produced a customized product for us in only 90 days. That included adding a new carrier to the system so our agents and affiliates can quote four BOP carriers simultaneously. We selected Quantum because it’s easy to use, reliable and it gives us a strong platform for future expansion of services.”
QSEMCI is a web-based, risk-qualifying, template-underwriting and real-time comparative quoting business application available by license to managing general agents, general agents, brokers and e-aggregators. Agents enter data one time, then receive multiple commercial insurance quotes in minutes instead of days required for non-automated systems.
The software uses screen scraping technology and can also be integrated with any insurance carrier supporting Direct XML or IVANS for any commercial line of business. QSEMCI can be used “out of the box” in standard configurations that include features such as chat, which enables user companies to communicate directly with field agents in real time, or customized to suit special needs.
Quantum President Mark Van Horn said the company continues to strengthen and refine QSEMCI to meet the demands of time-pressed insurance agents who constantly must find ways to make more productive use of their time.
“Every minute we save in paperwork and waiting for quotes is time agents can use to serve their clients better,” Van Horn said. “This isn’t a small thing; we’re talking about weeks of productivity our software frees up for agents, which can make a huge bottom line impact.”
