During March 2009, approximately 400 agencies processed more than 11,700 contracts, a 23.3 percent increase over March 2008. From 2006 to 2008, ECSâ¢ contracts are up 36.7 percent and are increasing every month.
âHistorically, insurance agents have been slow to adopt technology,â said Zach McCoy, Senior Vice President, Operations & Finance, Kaplan Compliance Solutions. âHowever, as more tech-savvy agents enter the workforce they are embracing automation and the environmental benefits that automation brings. Our trends show that this is taking place.â
ECSâ¢ is an industry-leading forms solution for agent contracting. Through a web-based Intelligent Interviewâ¢, ECSâ¢ is the key to accurate data collection and transmission for flawless agent contracting. ECSâ¢ can populate carrier-required forms and then bundle them with licenses, errors and omissions coverage, and background information. Unlike most other forms solutions, ECSâ¢ transmits agent and distributor data to carriersâ legacy systems and other vendor systems. This eliminates redundant and inefficient paper-based activities while minimizing human workload and errors.
