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.
LOS ANGELES, June 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Mercury Insurance (NYSE: MCY) recently launched "AgentCenter," a new point of sale software for its agents in California. 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 agent experience, sales development, underwriting, claims, IT and independent agents – to create the industry's most intuitive point of sale 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 continues to be a carrier focused on helping our agents assist Californians," said Brandt Minnich, vice president and chief sales development 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.
"AgentCenter is easy to use," said Darrell Dugat, office manager at A Bradford Plus Insurance. "It's pretty awesome."
"We are very pleased with AgentCenter," said Patrick Sevigny, agency principal at Southern Guard Insurance. "AgentCenter is easy to navigate and not much training is needed."
