Carriers and agencies alike rely on MGAs and MGUs for their expertise in niche markets and specialized coverage. To maintain that trusted status, they have to keep on top of new trends and stay in front of demand—a goal which can’t be achieved without modern, integrated tools.
The days of running your MGA with a hodgepodge of different software are over. It’s not efficient for your staff and it can make the experience of doing business with you difficult. Streamlining operations is frequently at the top of mind when it comes to insurance technology, and it is almost always guided by the philosophy of bringing value to the customer.
So how exactly can a dedicated underwriting and accounting tool make you more profitable while bringing value? Here are some features to look for as you build a foundation for your future:
One system for everything
Centralize all key accounting, underwriting, and claims functions in one place, which saves you money and makes your staff more efficient in the long run.
Document management and workflow solutions automate front-end tasks and reduce duplicate data entry, which saves time and reduces E&O risk.
Track the entire claims workflow in a single tool while monitoring for irregularities and fraud.
Track producer commissions, individual agency commissions, fees, and more—all while adhering to strict insurance industry data stewardship regulations.
