Using APIs and AMS360 to automate processes

Oyer, Macoviak and Associates president and employee

Early in 2017, Macoviak began looking at Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) — snippets of code that allow software applications to share a common language and data — for automating office processes. Initially he wanted an API to use for customer marketing purposes like mailing postcards and letters to clients and prospects. Taking that one step, he estimates, “saved about 15 hours a week,” and from that point on, he was hooked on the concept of APIs for automating routine, yet essential agency tasks.

At the same time, with a little nudge from his wife and agency vice president, Christian, Macoviak began the process of evaluating agency management systems that would easily integrate with their APIs to deliver efficiencies across the board. Or as his wife says, “You did it for marketing, can you do it for the rest of the office?”

Macoviak looked at several different offerings before deciding on Vertafore’s AMS360. According to Macoviak, “We started looking at other agency management systems, and we looked at all of them. I mean literally.”

But Macoviak kept coming back to the powerful APIs he was using and which agency management system would work best from a technology perspective. Vertafore’s open platform allows for seamless integration with APIs. For Oyer, Macoviak and Associates, AMS360 provided the functionality they needed with easy API integration — APIs they knew were helping them make substantial improvements.

Better profitability and sustained growth

AMS360 is helping this agency save an hour per day, per employee, on manual processes, producing significant upside for Macoviak and his team. “Last year, we grew 16% and didn’t add an employee. This year, we’re up 26% and not going to add an employee. That’s what this technology does… Our profit is way over 30% and that’s the whole theory of automation.”

Their workflows are completely streamlined now using AMS360, with real-time access to all the essential data they need to quickly help their customers through transactions.

AMS360 is superior, for the CSR to see everything, to see all the different activities, to see the documents, to see the policies. It’s like a call center for agents, but it does all the work for them at the same time.

Macoviak’s staff has seen dramatic time savings since implementing AMS360. “If that auto change took us 20 minutes, now it takes us two minutes,” explains Macoviak. “If we take a claim, the actual overall paperwork is little or nothing because we’re directly integrating the claims right into the company’s website and putting that information in, so the claim’s almost immediately getting reported.” Now everything is tied together through AMS360.
