Vertafore Announces Partnership with the National Association of Professional Agents for Automated License Management
East Lansing, MI— Vertafore®, the leading provider of software that transforms the business of insurance, today announced a partnership with the National Association of Professional Agents (NAPA) to provide their member agents automated license management capabilities using Sircon® ProducerEDGE™.
“We’re excited to work with NAPA to provide their members a better, easier way to manage their license compliance requirements,” said Tim Owen, vice president of product management.
NAPA has provided professional services to insurance professionals since 1989. With more than 100,000 members, NAPA provides various benefits including, but not limited to, errors and omissions insurance, education opportunities, and discounts for their insurance agent members.
To enhance operational efficiencies and the overall agent experience, NAPA encourages agents to leverage business solutions and technology offerings. As such, NAPA recently partnered with Vertafore to give NAPA members special access to Vertafore’s compliance management solution, Sircon ProducerEDGE. This partnership means NAPA members can now take advantage of one year of free premium ProducerEDGE membership if they sign up before the end of 2015.
What is ProducerEDGE?
With a premium ProducerEDGE account, agents can:
1. Automatically have their licenses managed and updated with detailed information from the national Producer Database (PDB).
2. Apply for and renew licenses from all 50 states in one convenient location.
3. Receive automatic license renewal reminders and transaction status update notifications.
4. Give agencies access to view and help manage their licensing credentials.
What does this mean for NAPA members?
With automation, notifications, and quick accessibility from anywhere to their license credentials in all states, agents and agencies can be more confident that they can more effectively manage their licenses and reduce the potential repercussions of non-compliance. From an agency perspective, improved visibility and management of agent credentials simplifies their compliance efforts. By connecting agencies with their agents through Sircon technology, agents can focus on new business sales and client service.
“The National Association of Professional Agents is very excited to launch our new partnership with the industry leader in producer compliance software — Vertafore’s Sircon solutions. NAPA strives to provide true value-added benefits that directly apply to our members’ core business functions. We encourage all members to take advantage of this powerful web-based personal compliance tool,” Ted Baran, senior product consultant of NAPA Benefits.
