ALEXANDRIA, Virginia, Jan. 16, 2018—InsureZone is the newest company partner of the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America's Agents Council for Technology (ACT).
“ACT welcomes InsureZone as a partner," says Ron Berg, ACT executive director. “We look forward to working with the InsureZone team to help agents improve the customer experience and tackle other issues that affect the independent agency system."
InsureZone operates in three areas of the property-casualty insurance world: 1) software development and licensing, 2) wholesale and retail insurance sales and back office services and 3) technology consulting. The company's proprietary suite of software products improves efficiency for the entire range of tasks required to rate, quote, issue and service an insurance policy across the entire P&C spectrum—personal, commercial and surplus lines.
“We're excited to join the conversations happening within the Agent's Council for Technology," says InsureZone CEO John Pergande. “We support ACT and its efforts to streamline the insurance sales and policy servicing process. We look forward to helping agents better use insurance technology to prepare their agencies for the next 20 years in insurance."
