ProgramBusiness Storefront Owner AMS Services, Inc. http://www.programbusiness.com/tracking/sftracker.asp?SFid=188 has announced that State Auto Insurance Companies has joined TransactNOW(TM), becoming the 17th carrier to participate.
Introduced this past March at the AMS National Users' Group Conference, TransactNOW(TM) is AMS's newest interface offering that enables AMS management system customers to process business transactions with carriers via a real-time single-entry workflow, without having to leave their system.

"We're pleased to provide this workflow-enhancing service for our many agency partners with AMS management systems," said Noreen Johnson, Vice President of Information Technologies at State Auto. "Our agent portal, AgentSite, is regularly used by thousands of agency personnel every day, and we believe the addition of TransactNOW(TM) will further increase company and agency productivity."
Dave Shea, president and CEO of AMS Services Agency Markets, added, "TransactNOW(TM) has rapidly become a success story for both agents and carriers. We are excited to have State Auto join with us to dramatically improve the customer service being delivered by our agency customers to their insureds. We continue to add new transactions, carriers, and workflow enhancements as quickly as possible."
