“Imagine delivering a message directly to an agent at the point of sale while they are deciding how or where to place the business,” says David Taylor, VP of Product Integration at EZLynx. “Carriers can now interact with their agents when they are quoting and grab their attention with a variety of risk specific messages in their EZLynx quotes. This powerful tool provides the message vehicle for growing a carrier’s market for specific areas or products.”
The messages, returned by the carrier’s system, are channeled to a messaging section on the EZLynx quote results page. Banner alerts provide agents with an excerpt of the message content. A quick click takes the agent to the carrier’s exclusive message, focusing them on the carrier’s specific information.
EZLynx Carrier Messaging is a highly effective communications channel for a carrier to deliver its unique strengths to its agency force. While the messaging framework may be used for broadcast message delivery, it may also be used to deliver risk-specific messaging via text or HTML formatting.
“For example,” Taylor continues, “submission of a risk that the carrier identifies as an umbrella candidate can trigger a 'have you considered' message back to the agent and includes a link to the carrier’s umbrella quoting application. With very liberal space-availability, carriers can employ combinations of text and graphical formats along with interactive methods as agent calls-to-action.”
“With multiple national carriers now participating in EZLynx Carrier Messaging, this is a win-win for the independent agent-carrier channel,” said Taylor.
