Centralized Data Exchange Enables Agencies to Enhance Customer Service and Improve Ease of Doing Business with Carriers

NAILBA 28, Hollywood, Fla. – November 13, 2009

News Facts

InsuranceExperts.com, a broker general agency for life, health and annuity products, and Quick Life, a direct marketing agency for life insurance, are using Oracle® Insurance Data Exchange to improve their ease of doing business with multiple carriers and elevate overall customer service.
Oracle Insurance Data Exchange is a centralized data exchange hub for life and health insurance and annuities. It enables the secure exchange of real-time data — such as policy applications and commission statements — among carriers, agencies and service providers to support straight-through processing.
The Oracle Insurance solution enables InsuranceExperts.com and Quick Life to streamline communication among various stakeholders, helping to accelerate the quote-to-issue process and improve closure rates. Expanded visibility into the status of policy applications helps the companies deliver more informed and responsive customer service.
Oracle Insurance Data Exchange also eases the review process for new policies. InsuranceExperts.com and Quick Life both receive data feeds for pending case status updates and commission statements directly into their own agency management systems — eliminating the need to log in to multiple carrier sites for information. This seamless integration has enabled both companies to automate back-office processes and avoid costly and time-consuming data re-entry.
Both InsuranceExperts.com and Quick Life expect to increase sales activity without increasing operational costs.
