Calling all commercial lines agents—the Agents Council for Technology (ACT) has a unique and exciting opportunity just for you!
The ACT Small Commercial Rating Work Group is working with a handful of comparative rating vendors to offer a free 60- to 90-day pilot to select Big “I" member agents that write commercial lines. These members will have the opportunity to access a participating vendor's rating platform to quote small commercial lines such as business owners policies, commercial auto and workers compensation.
ACT is looking for a mix of tech-savvy agencies, those that have implemented comparative rating in some form and struggled with the workflow, and those who have never used it—all are welcome to apply. By obtaining feedback from a mix of agencies, ACT will receive a range of insights to help move our industry forward.
If you are interested in being considered for this opportunity, complete the online questionnaire by Wednesday, Feb. 27. If your agency is chosen to participate, you will be provided with additional details on the process and participant expectations, as well as training and support.
A total of 15-20 agencies for each comparative rating vendor will be selected. All submissions will be reviewed, and every applicant will receive a response about whether they have been selected to participate.
ACT focuses on bringing independent agents, carriers, vendors and other key industry stakeholders together to improve technology workflows, enhance productivity and increase profitability. Here's how the pilot will benefit key distribution channel stakeholders:
- Agents: Increase awareness and utilization of existing solutions; allow for feedback on improvement; and increase the number of carriers participating.
- Carriers: Provide real-world stats and insights to create internal ROI.
- Vendors: Deliver input on areas for streamlining quoting workflow.
