Agencies love the fact that account staff from multiple offices no longer duplicate data entry tasks and spend time wrestling with page formatting.

Patra Corporation (http://www.patracorp.com), the leader in insurance outsourcing for both back-office processing and managed services for insurance agents and brokers, announced the launch of BenefitBrochures.com, a resource for agencies interested in a new way to address the often time-consuming and expensive process of creating benefit summary brochures. BenefitBrochures.com features Patra’s new Benefit Brochure Service (BBS), a web-based solution allowing brokers and agencies to produce professional-quality employee benefit brochures quickly and efficiently. With BBS, agencies can use a simple web interface for brochure development, customer support and printing information. Patra’s Benefit Brochure Service is the solution for for agencies interested in a new way to address the challenge of creating benefit brochures.
Agencies have typically had few options when it came to publishing benefit brochures for their clients. Frequently, agencies will pay a graphic designer to design brochures and enter plan data. Other options include asking account managers to perform these desktop publishing functions with software like Microsoft’s PowerPoint or Word. “When faced with the decision to spend on expensive graphic designers or to use account manager time to produce these brochures, many agencies simply declined to offer the service to clients,” says Diane Sinawi, Patra’s Director of Document Solutions. “With our Benefit Brochure Service, agencies are able to produce professional materials in minutes - at a fraction of the cost.”
Patra’s Benefit Brochure Service uses cloud technology, allowing agencies to upload plan information centrally to a secure database dedicated to their agency for use by all of their account staff. Using a simple interface, account managers are able to combine pre-defined graphic templates and a large image library with their own copy and plan data, tailoring each brochure to their client. The templates and drag-and-drop interface allows a brochure to be created in under 30 minutes.
“Agencies love the fact that account staff from multiple offices no longer duplicate data entry tasks and spend time wrestling with page formatting,” says Sinawi. “This service allows agencies to differentiate themselves by providing their clients with professionally designed benefit brochures with accurate and detailed plan information.”
Patra’s Benefit Brochure Service is the only service of its kind offered specifically to the insurance agent and broker industry.
