April 17, 2019
Program recognizes independent insurance agencies leveraging IVANS to increase insurer connectivity
Tampa, FL – April 17, 2019 – IVANS, a division of Applied Systems, today announced the commencement of the annual IVANS Connected program. The program recognizes independent insurance agencies that leverage IVANS Exchange™ and IVANS Markets™ to manage their download connections and access markets to drive agency productivity and profitability.
To become an IVANS Connected agency, agents must fully customize their IVANS Exchange Connections Report, indicating interest for specific download or insurers to be appointed with. Additionally, agents must log in to IVANS Markets to review market appetite.
IVANS Exchange provides agencies, MGAs and insurers a single location to access, review and effectively manage download connections. Facilitating better communication between insurers and agencies through enhanced download requests and feedback, IVANS Exchange enables more beneficial insurer-agency relationships and automated servicing across the insurance lifecycle.
IVANS Markets provides insurers and MGAs an industry-first application to instantly communicate appetite and identify new business opportunities with agencies. Leveraging this digital channel also reduces dependency on time-consuming, manual steps traditionally used to communicate appetite. IVANS Markets directs more in-appetite submissions into your pipeline to drive growth and profitability.
“For more than 35 years, IVANS has been committed to driving agent-insurer connectivity across the entire insurance lifecycle, enabling business success for all industry stakeholders,” said Thad Bauer, vice president and general manager, IVANS Insurance Solutions. “We are proud to recognize the agents that are fully leveraging IVANS to automate businesses operations and ensure the best products and service for the end insured.”
