University Park, Ill. – April 11, 2017 – Applied Systems today revealed that Townley Kenton has successfully launched its digital agency strategy. Townley Kenton has built their digital foundation on Applied Epic, the fastest-growing cloud-based agency management system in the world, to standardize operations and provide a single view of the business.

Applied Epic’s scalable software architecture provides agencies with multiple global locations the ability to manage expansion and business growth with ease.
“As a growing agency, we are focused on integrating leading technology as the foundation of a digital business model to drive operational efficiencies and profitability,” said Rob Townley, principal, Townley Kenton. “Applied Epic will enable us to scale our business and increase productivity through enhanced automation and standardized reporting. Additionally, Applied CSR24 extends our customer experience by providing our clients an online portal to reference policy information, download certificates of insurance, and manage claims while on-the-go and at their own convenience.”
Applied CSR24, the leading cloud-based client self-service software, enables agencies to meet today’s insurance consumer demand for anytime, anywhere access to information by providing 24/7 access to insurance policy information, claims filing and processing, premium payments and insurance documents through an online agency-branded client portal or mobile application via Applied MobileInsured.
