“As we transition from a captive Nationwide agency to an independent agency model, we require technology that enables us to manage multiple lines of business across multiple markets while keeping a single view of our overall book,” said Blake Batte, chief operations officer, McAnally Wilkins Agency. “Applied Digital Agency will enable our agency to have a single source of truth on our customers and prospects that can be acted upon quickly for servicing and sales activities.”
