Integrate a white-labeled version of EZLynx Consumer Quoting on your carrier website!

80% of consumers interested in buying a personal lines insurance policy will shop for insurance via the internet but only 20% will actually purchase a policy over the internet. The industry experience we’ve gained from our Consumer Quoting for Agents has been used to create EZLynx Carrier Consumer Quoting; a powerful tool that a carrier may implement from their consumer-facing website which allows a prospective insured to securely enter their personal lines risk information directly into the carrier site. The risk is then underwritten by the carrier adherent to their specific guidelines, and immediately returns a real-time quote to the prospect.

EZLynx Carrier Consumer Quoting has been adopted by a number of leading insurance carriers, enhancing their ability to deploy an industry tested platform without the need to scale up an in-house development team.
What makes this program so appealing to all three parties: the carrier, consumer, and independent agent, is that EZLynx Carrier Consumer Quoting immediately passes the prospect information to one of the carrier’s independent agents based on a predetermined set of specific criteria (programmed within EZLynx) that may include demographic information, such as zip code location, line of business, or other carrier devised rules.

The goal of this solution is twofold: facilitate those consumers who prefer to research the cost and coverage available, at their convenience 24/7/365, and second, to provide the prospective insured with the experience, knowledge and expertise of a licensed independent insurance agent who is familiar with their geographic location and other demographics pertinent to the risk. In other words, the insured, carrier, and agent all reap the benefits of “the best of both worlds.”

After years of providing a real-time consumer rating portal from an independent agent’s website and Facebook page, EZLynx has combined its experience with the knowledge gained, and incorporated it into an easy to navigate, seamlessly integrated product that carriers may now use to enhance the consumers’ insurance buying experience. With EZLynx Carrier Consumer Quoting constructed to emulate the carrier site with its branding, colors and logo, the consumer has the comfort of knowing that they are always interacting directly with their preferred carrier. From a business standpoint, carriers who implement our product within their organization take advantage of a proven, accurate real-time rating system and combine the economies of scale by not having to construct and maintain their own internal consumer facing program, and may now offer what many consumers have come to expect – their insurance products to the general public via an electronic, cost saving mechanism.

At the carrier’s option, the consumer’s experience can be extended to include the built in rate finalization and Online Buy functionality of EZLynx Carrier Consumer Quoting. Implementing this solution across their personal lines products allows the carrier to minimize distribution expenses without sacrificing the value of a truly understanding and educated insurance agent.

EZLynx Roadmap for 2013 – Mid-Year Update

A Note from the CEO – 95% EZLynx Customer Satisfaction Rating

First off, I want to thank all our customers for their overwhelming approval of EZLynx. Once again, for 8th year in a row, 95% of our customers said they would recommend EZLynx to someone they know. Our deepest thanks for all the faith and confidence you have in us. Our employees work very hard to make this happen and we are excited to see such numbers even as our company grows.

I made some business commitments in January 2013 newsletter and I thought I would follow up with a mid-year update on these commitments. We are still focused on 3 different areas for 2013 – mobile support, more consumer facing features and agency productivity. I am happy to say that we have delivered a little bit towards each of these goals.

We delivered our version 2 of consumer facing client center which allows for your customers not only to print policy documents like ID card but also to request policy changes. This product is on a good path and the next step for this product is to mobile enable the same.

On the mobile front end, we delivered our first version of Consumer Quoting Mobile in the first half of this year. This version allows consumers, visiting your site, to finish their quotes on a mobile device as effortlessly as on a desktop computer. If you happen to be one of our customers with our website product then your customers should experience a seemless mobile experience including the website and the quoting.

Finally, just last week we delivered our fully integrated eSignature feature within EZLynx. This feature will allow our users to send any PDF document, including all the ones available inside EZLynx and any carrier documents, to your customers for a quick signature. We really believe this should significantly improve agent productivity within EZLynx and also compliance with carrier and state laws to always obtain certain signed documents.

How EZLynx Consumer Quoting Benefits Your Business

Online shopping has become exponentially more popular in recent years. Even when people purchase products in person or over the phone, they usually start by doing research online to find out what’s available and what it costs. Then, once they have decided what to buy, they will go ahead and make the purchase. Because of this trend, our EZLynx Consumer Quoting portal is more helpful than ever for growing your business.

Most people know that they can get different rates from different insurance carriers, so they want to gather as many quotes as possible before making their decision. They may even compare the cost of purchasing insurance directly through the carrier to purchasing through an independent agent like you. Therefore, you need to make it easy for people to find the information they want to convince them that you can get them the best rates.

Our EZLynx Consumer Quoting portal is designed to integrate easily into your website, especially if you’re already using our EZLynx Agency Website service. When potential customers visit your website, they’ll be able to enter information about their vehicles directly into the consumer portal and obtain quotes from all the carriers you use without ever leaving your site. Having quotes available on your site means people will be much more likely to stick around to make a purchase.

We designed our consumer portal to be streamlined and simple to use by incorporating several features that consumers love. For example, we have optimized forms that allow people to fill in their information very quickly. Our vehicle pre-fill feature even uses the information entered early on to look up the specifics of the vehicles consumers may be interested in insuring. These features increase the likelihood that consumers will go all the way through the process of getting a quote.

Once people have obtained a quote, we make it easy for you to follow up. The information consumers enter goes into the EZLynx Management System to help you manage your work flow. We’ll also help you send automated marketing emails to encourage consumers to get a new quote if they do not make a purchase on their initial visit. If they don’t finish the process of requesting a quote through the consumer portal, we can also send automatic emails to remind them to come back and finish up. In addition, our analytics tools make it easy for you to see at a glance what types of people are requesting quotes and where they’re coming from, so you can better target your advertising.

When you’re looking to provide a valuable service to people shopping for car insurance, EZLynx Consumer Quoting is the way to go. We the first to create a powerful consumer quoting portal for insurance, and we are continually improving it to keep you on the cutting edge.

The Mobile Explosion

According to a 2013 study by ComScore, the evolution of mobile devices has reached new heights with more than 129 million Americans carrying smartphone devices. That number is expected to increase by 40 percent over the next three years – a change that is sure to further fuel the popularity of mobile search.

Currently, desktop Internet searches only barely edge out mobile web searches in popularity among Americans. But in December 2012, CNET reported that a year-end Internet trends report delivered at Stanford University showed that mobile web is gaining fast on desktop Internet traffic, and in some places it has already surpassed it.

What Higher Mobile Search Means for Insurance Agencies

The number-one reason web browsers visit an insurance agency’s site for the first time is to obtain insurance quotes. It is no secret that consumers have acquired insurance quotes online for many years, but the number of those online quotes requested via mobile web devices has steadily increased month by month. Mobile searches for insurance quotes using smartphones and tablet devices are at an all-time high and are only expected to grow higher.

EZLynx Consumer Quoting mobile in several colors

But despite requests for on-demand insurance quotes, Internet users accessing from smartphones and tablets want to get a quote quickly without having to zoom, pinch and pan the screen to view and enter information. In fact, consumers are becoming increasingly impatient with websites and even mobile applications that are not optimized enough for their favorite devices. Slow-to-load pages or pages that are not simplified for mobile devices are left for competitors with faster and more navigation-friendly sites.

Cutting-edge features like EZLynx Consumer Quoting mobile ensure that independent insurance agencies can edge out the competition and avoid overlooking such a pertinent part of the insurance market. After all, insurance agencies cannot convert traffic if they don’t have any.
