Insurance Industry News from ProgramBusiness.comIntroducing Aptus
Storefront owner BenefitPoint introduces Aptus!
Let’s face it – growing your P&C agency is tough. Many agencies strive to leverage established customer relationships by adding Employee Benefits to their product offering, but are disappointed by mixed results. What agency owners fail to recognize is that selling Employee Benefits products requires the same level of expertise, commitment, drive, and focus that made their Commercial Lines operation successful.
While employers seek the same skilled advice as a commercial lines client, Benefits sales are very different. In Commercial Lines, the agent often wins the customer’s trust – and business – before they even present a quote. Commercial lines producers who have a comprehensive understanding of a customer’s business and its unique exposures immediately have the “edge”. In Benefits, there is limited opportunity to show this level of specialization pre-sale, and business is won based on commitments to service provided after the sale.
To meet those commitments, benefits agencies need solutions that will save time, reduce administrative burden, and streamline operations, so they can truly focus on the customer. Efficient, effective, customer service results in greater retention, increased market share, and more profit. Agencies win when they deliver on the promises made to their benefits customers.
BenefitPoint Aptus provides agencies with the tools they need. Aptus is a web-based benefits management platform designed specifically for the employee benefits business. Aptus allows employee benefits professionals to meet client needs, eliminate redundant processes and capture data for business intelligence and strategic decision-making – leading to increased sales and productivity.
