We help you help your clients
In addition to providing the service and coverage options your clients want, we support you as you work with your clients.
- No agency appointment necessary: We don’t require an agency appointment before accepting each submission and providing a quote. We also don’t require a minimum number of submissions or premium threshold.
- Flexible commission options: We can structure our quotes to include a commission load or not—it’s up to you. Alternately, we can quote net of any commissions if you work on a fee basis. In short, our billing practices are transparent so there are no surprises.
- Value added services: We provide more than just insurance coverage. Our customers benefit from additional programs and services, such as workers’ compensation cost-containment and safety services resources.
- Access to top-level decision makers: Our senior management understands the broker perspective and will be there to support your work.
- Nimble and centralized operations: Our sales and underwriting specialists communicate to make sure your submissions are reviewed and quoted as quickly as possible. Our team is also available for face-to-face negotiations. And all billing, rating, audit, and client advisory personnel are in-house.
Our dedicated service team approach builds meaningful relationships
When your clients insure with us, they—and you—work with a specific team of experienced professionals. This means you and your client will know the people answering your phone calls and administering your policy.
Working with a designated service team provides you with the following practical benefits:
- Ongoing, transparent communication
- Rapid response to developing issues
- Proper interpretation of your company’s business perspective
- Sustained understanding of ongoing situations
- Long-term accountability
