Lake St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 19, 2011
Stuckey & Company, a leading provider of commercial insurance programs for small to mid-sized buisnesses, is making it easier than ever for commercial insurance agents to get rate quotes from multiple carriers with just a single, online inquiry. Its new EZ Connect comparative rater tool allows Stuckey agents to enter information about insureds and receive bindable quotes directly from leading national carriers.
“Small commercial policies, such as Workers Compensation, Commercial Auto and BOP policies, account for 80% of the commercial business written each year,” says Dwight Stuckey, President and CEO of Stuckey & Company. “And agents have traditionally spent a great deal of time re-keying data into different carriers’ application systems in order to get competitive quotes.” Stuckey’s EZ Connect system enables agents to enter information a single time, and generates real-time quotes with a single submission.
“Not only does the simplified process save time, but it also reduces the chance for errors that often result from repetitive data entry” Stuckey says. “The EZ Connect comparative rater has underwriting built into the interview, and allows agents to quickly compare premiums and coverages from up to five different carriers.”
Stuckey says that several dozen Stuckey & Company agents have started using the comparative rating tool for virtually all of their commercial business. The agents using it most frequently say the tool is easy to use and has streamlined their quoting and binding process, giving them more time to write new business instead of just chasing down quotes from carriers.
Some of the carriers available from EZ Connect include Allied, The Hartford, CNA, SAFECO, Travelers and Zurich. To utilize Stuckey’s comparative rating tool, agents simply need to complete an Agency Registration form at http://www.stuckey.com/forms/register_agency.php; once they are approved, Stuckey & Company will give them a username and login for the EZ Connect tool.
