Many of the agencies that we work with write commercial business, which can be a time-intensive line to service. We’ve taken feedback from many commercial lines agencies about what they need most to manage commercial lines tasks more efficiently, and we’re pleased to say: we’re making it happen.
Bulk Emailing of Certificates
Creating, emailing, and printing certificates is an important and tedious task related to commercial business. Finding solutions for certificate headaches was in the front of our minds when putting together the 4.2 release. In order to address this, we’ve added the ability to generate and email any number of certificates – all at once, with a single click. This feature can be utilized right when a policy is bound, and also throughout the policy term when it’s necessary to add more interest holders to existing certificates. Boom!
Share Certificates in the Client Center
Customer self-servicing is the name of the game, and with EZLynx 4.2, everyone is a winner. Customers are happy to be able to access and print their own documents 24/7, and agents love spending less time servicing (and having more time for sales). So now, when a certificate is created, it can be shared on the Client Center with one click. We couldn’t make it any easier than that!
Agency Form Templates
Many agencies have forms that are specific to their agency that they use over and over. These forms can now be uploaded as a template to the agency’s EZLynx account, then accessed by everyone from an applicant’s Documents tab. You asked for it and we delivered!

Let’s walk through a commercial auto policy. Start by adding a new policy just like you always have! However, if you select a covered line of business, you will have an “Add & Edit Policy” option. The new workflow starts with Insured Information.
The Insured Information tab gathers information that typically appears on the ACORD 125. It allows you to input Business Information, Insureds, Policy Contacts, and Premises Information.
On the Coverages tab, input the high-level policy coverage information to pre-fill for vehicles on the next workflow step.
The workflow is aimed at the ACORD 127 form for the vehicle and driver schedules. First, the Vehicles tab simplifies the process by allowing you to copy/edit/remove vehicles throughout the lifecycle of the policy.
Second, the Drivers tab is used to quickly manage the policy’s drivers, and associate them with specific vehicles on your vehicle schedule.
The Underwriting tab focuses on Prior Carrier Info, Loss History, and General Info questions. At General Info questions, you can “select all” to speed up the process by only answering the necessary questions.
The final tab in the workflow is your Additional Interests. Easily input any additional interest that applies to the policy so you can quickly create Certificates of Insurance.
