Start-up independent insurance agency builds broker-anywhere business model on digital agency technology
UNIVERSITY PARK Ill. – September 1, 2020 – Applied Systems® today announced that Protecdiv has selected Applied’s Digital Agency software to digitally enable their tier-one insurance and reinsurance brokerage. Applied’s Digital Agency software will enable the agency to automate policy workflows and manage their Property & Casualty (P/C) business in the cloud, providing operational flexibility regardless of location. Protecdiv will also implement a customer self-service portal and mobile apps for staff and customers to create a digital experience throughout the policy lifecycle.
“When we launched our business, we wanted to be agile and have a ‘broker-anywhere’ business model, so we needed technology that provided our business the flexibility to operate regardless of location and device,” said Lester Pierre, chief technology officer, Protecdiv. “The Applied Digital Agency software provides our staff and clients with access to information anytime, anywhere, which is essential for our team to quickly grow our book of business while supporting a transparent, connected customer experience.”
Applied’s Digital Agency software consists of a foundational management system, mobile technology and insurer connectivity, hosted on the cloud. The fully integrated software enables agencies to create higher-value business transactions and deliver superior customer experiences throughout the entire insurance lifecycle while eliminating duplicative work typically caused by multiple, disparate systems.
