Itasca, Illinois (PRWEB) September 24, 2007
Lending to ARM's status as a leading insurance force, Associated Risk Managers (ARM) announces new and enhanced programs that add to member benefits. ARM's latest venture includes partnership with Lindale, Texas-based Advanced Automation Inc. ARMFiCo also has expanded its program now providing new Electronic Premium Financing (EPF). According to ARM chairman Larry Johnson, "We are always seeking ways to help our members improve efficiencies. In addition to the network members establish among themselves, these relationships give them the resources to compete on a larger scale."
Working with Advanced Automation, ARM members can pursue ways to improve profitability, increase retention and augment customer service. Advanced Automation helps streamline internal processes, from converting paper to electronic files and assessing procedures, to building employee morale. Serving insurance agencies nationwide, Advanced Automation has helped more than 15,000 companies improve operations, and now ARM members can benefit from its experience.
At the same time, ARM members can take advantage of ARMFiCo's newly available Electronic Premium Financing (EPF). This completely electronic premium financing process minimizes paperwork and saves premium processing time so agents can focus on placing insurance. From e-signatures to monthly electronic payments, every aspect of the financing process is electronically driven. Even files are maintained on line, allowing more efficient operations.
Besides a growing list of national affiliations, ARM members benefit from negotiated fees that are substantially less than they would pay otherwise. An annual ARM Conference (usually convening in Spring) provides state-of-the-art education and workshops, high-profile speakers and invaluable networking opportunities that alone are worth ARM membership.
ARM is the nation's foremost independent agency network, encompassing more than 300 agency members and representing $4-plus billion annually in premium volume.
