Conquered: The Data Migration Challenge

A common concern we encounter from our customers is the risk of losing their data when moving to a new management system. As you amass more information, maintaining your data becomes increasingly important. EZLynx has developed a proven process to help our customers migrate their data to EZLynx Management System – a process in which our customers have been happy to talk about. Nothing is left behind due to EZLynx’s effective conversion process.

Assessment

When you’ve opted for data transfer, EZLynx maintains constant contact with your team. Your data is customized into a conversion plan suited to your unique needs. EZLynx’s success is based on our customer’s happiness, and all of our actions are directed towards protecting your data.

The Data Back-up

Once you have contacted your previous vendor, we streamline your files for conversion. Many formats are covered.

Using Old System Downloads

Additionally, all of your previous downloads will remain in your old system. In the event of a backup emergency, you’ll already have access to historical files. Once EZLynx has begun its process, your attachments, notes, reminders and tasks will be similarly logged. After this, information forwarded to EZLynx will be recorded.

The Conversion Process

EZLynx Data Conversion ProcessWithin eight weeks, your files are tested, cleaned up, reviewed and successfully converted to our system. As your data is analyzed, everything is accounted for, and you’ll be kept informed throughout the entire process.

Sample batch conversions are used to maintain accuracy, and any missing information is generated within a list by referencing current data.

With such a process, full visibility provides an enhanced approach to data migration. Any areas needing attention are discussed before total conversion, reducing any chance of “faulty” conversions. Quality verification is signed off on, and the process is never deemed “finished” until your word grants it.

Vanquishing Fear with Knowledge

Our time-tested-and-true processes guard your data throughout the conversion process, removing inconsistencies while safeguarding it from loss. This is just one of many reasons why we consistently achieve customer satisfaction scores over 95% year in and year out!

“My biggest concern was ‘Will my data convert?’, and I’ve got to tell you, EZLynx was there every step of the way. We had a pre-conference call with how the whole conversion process would work and they made me feel very comfortable. Throughout the entire process my EZLynx representative was always there to guide me through… Everything that EZLynx promised that I would get, I got it and better.”

-Phil Klein, Phil Klein Insurance Group

It may be time to make the change. After all, once a fear has been realized and logically countered, there isn’t much room left for fear itself, is there? Leave a comment below, or take a look at our Data Conversion overview for more information.


Data Conversion for EZLynx Management System

It’s no secret in the insurance industry that legacy agency management systems have had a stranglehold on their customers for quite a while.  Their strategy was simple: Get as much of your agency data into their system as possible, and then make it extremely difficult to get it out again.  Agents soon found themselves chained to these old, expensive systems with no easy way to escape.

EZLynx has accepted that challenge by offering comprehensive data conversion services with EZLynx Management System, and we’ve taken the hassle out of converting your customer data.EZLynx Management System - Policies

EZLynx Management System can replace much of the functionality found in legacy management systems – at a fraction of the cost. However, cost is not the only factor an agency has to take into account.

 

We recently spoke with two of our customers that have had firsthand experience with the data conversion process when moving to EZLynx Management System.

“My first question was ‘Will everything come through?’” said Lindsay King of Insurance Center of Green Valley when considering a move from TAM Online.

He’s not alone in his initial fears about moving systems. Most agents have accumulated years’ worth of customer data.

Brooke Seaman of AmeriFirst Insurance Agency shared that sentiment. “Making sure all of my saved documents were transferred successfully from AMS360 was my initial concern, and they were!”
For many agencies, manually re-entering customer data into a new management system is simply not an option.

“I would have never considered entering the information myself.  That would take a full time person working for months,” said Seaman.
This problem often forces agents to stay with expensive legacy systems that are no longer a good fit. “We simply didn’t use all of the features in our old system. It was complicated and not user friendly,” Seaman went on.  “I can count on the reports I produce from EZLynx; whereas the old system’s reports rarely seemed to be accurate.”

We put a lot of focus on making our Data Conversion process a smooth and painless process. “I was kept completely in the loop throughout the entire process, “says Seaman.  “They used a project management system that let me know on a daily basis the activity that had taken place and who performed it.  I worked closely with one person who was extremely knowledgeable and patient.  He even called me weeks after my conversion, just to check on me and see if we needed any help using the new system.”

One of our goals with EZLynx Management System has been to give agents an all-in-one platform to streamline their agency. “The comparative rating system has enabled us to keep staffing down,” said King. “The management system will keep costs down and allow us to spend money elsewhere.”

EZLynx Agency Suites provides a cost effective way for agents to handle all aspects of their agency, from EZLynx Consumer Quoting and Agency Websites, to Management System and Marketing Campaigns.  “I have been using EZLynx Rating Engine for years,” said Seaman.  “When I did the demo on the management system, I really liked what I saw.  It just makes sense to use the same company for both systems. Plus, they did my website, which looks amazing.  With EZLynx Client Center, Consumer Quoting, and the ability to rate from anywhere on any of my devices, EZLynx has been an extremely valuable business tool, helping my agency to achieve the growth and success that we’ve been aiming for.”

“I was very pleased with the conversion and the pricing,” says King.  “It is most definitely a great product for the price.” Seaman agreed, “Everything was there, just as if I never transferred it!”
