Mercury has been and always will be an agent-centric company because we’re on a mission to make insurance easy. AgentCenter simplifies workflows and requires virtually no training so our agents can focus on what’s most important to them, selling and servicing Mercury policies.
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (January 17, 2019) – Mercury Insurance (NYSE: MCY) recently launched “AgentCenter,” a new point of sale software for its agents in New York. The AgentCenter is designed to accelerate their time from quote to bound policies.
AgentCenter web-based software was developed in-house at Mercury with a cross-functional team – including underwriting, claims, IT and independent agents – to create the industry’s most intuitive point of sales system. The system benefits agents with new features that include:
- Little-to-no training needed by agent staff due to intuitive navigation;
- Pre-populated third-party reports and data;
- If the quoted rate changes, agents will know why and how on one easy-to-read screen;
- One-screen workflows for simple policy updates;
- Ability to view vehicle coverages side-by-side on a single screen; and
- Significant time savings for quote to bound policies.
“Mercury has been and always will be an agent-centric company because we’re on a mission to make insurance easy,” said Brandt Minnich, vice president and chief marketing officer at Mercury Insurance. “AgentCenter simplifies workflows and requires virtually no training so our agents can focus on what’s most important to them, selling and servicing Mercury policies. Our agents will be able to go from quote to bound policy faster than you can get a cup of coffee.”
AgentCenter streamlines the policy quote and bind process, reducing the time it takes to write a new policy by at least 60 percent. The web-based platform was designed to allow for quick updates due to regulatory changes and new Mercury product offerings.
“I processed my first change of vehicle through AgentCenter, and I have to say it was really easy to do,” said Wendy Von, personal lines representative at Wolf Agency. “I love that you can retrieve the endorsement document and ID card right after the change is issued.”
Mercury offers a variety of products and services to New York residents, including auto, home, renters and condo insurance.
Currently, Mercury’s AgentCenter is available to agents in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Nevada, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Texas and Virginia.
