Webcast Overview:

Onboarding and licensing can be cumbersome and complex, and current workplace changes could add even more stress to the system. Insurance agencies are facing greater churn and a shrinking workforce, and even though the pace of mergers and acquisitions may be slowing, ownership issues continue to reshape agency production processes. The insurance carrier onboarding experience will need to keep up with such progressions while meeting increased technology expectations to attract new and diverse talent. Fresh tools can help alleviate some of these challenges while increasing efficiency and compliance, lowering costs and introducing creative risk-mitigation strategies. Modern digital solutions are the answer to agency and carrier stressors. These tools can automate the process of compliance and regulatory checks while streamlining the user experience and enabling growth.

Join this complimentary webcast to learn how technology investments in 2023 can yield a better producer experience, reduce costs, scale distribution channels and track regulatory changes. You will learn:

  • The current state of carrier-agency technology developments;

  • What larger macro events may speed up the need for new insurtech;

  • How digital efficiencies can empower both the agent and carrier;

  • And more!
