Clearing a Path Toward Productivity with Commercial Schedule Imports & Exports

 

Accomplishing more, in a reduced amount of time, is crucial for commercial agents. It is not a simple task to quantify how changes to an agency’s workflow will improve overall productivity. To effectively make these changes requires a delicate understanding of a commercial agent’s needs. That’s why EZLynx is making extensive updates to the EZLynx import/export process, which will clear the way for agencies to accomplish more, faster.

Speed and accuracy are key in clearing a path to an agency’s ability to manage commercial accounts. Without one or the other, an agency is left with errors or stands unable to meet client needs in a timely manner. Importing information will aid agents in gathering and entering data into EZLynx quickly, with fewer entry mistakes. The next update will allow agents to import schedules for commercial line applications and policies, including vehicles, drivers, locations/buildings, named insureds, additional interests, and equipment.

Import Vehicles

This workflow allows agents to ‘Add New’ or ‘Replace All’ when remarketing or during any other major update. This feature will save agents time when working on applications or servicing a policy.

Append on Import

The ability for commercial clients to self-service their accounts is critical to an agency’s ability to exceed customer expectations. With the new update, agents will have the ability to export one or more schedules from applications and policies and automatically share those exports with an insured or a prospect. Then, the insured or the prospect will have the ability to make updates through EZLynx Client Center. This will help agents sell more by allowing the prospect to see the seamless and secure communication between Client Center and the agent. Existing clients will have additional options for communicating with their agents.

Share in Client Center

As laid out in the 2019 Roadmap, increasing innovation and productivity for commercial agencies is a major focus for EZLynx. Import capabilities are only the first step toward streamlining the workflow for commercial agents. Over the proceeding months, new product updates will continue to pave the way for commercial agencies to improve their overall productivity. Just another way EZLynx helps agents ACCOMPLISH MORE, FASTER.

Improved Productivity with Agency Workspace

You may have noticed that we often talk about productivity. Have you ever stopped and asked yourself what productivity truly means for your agency? EZLynx knows how increased productivity can improve your bottom line, and we provide agents with the tools they need to be efficient.

Productivity is the completion of a high volume of tasks, while efficiency refers to how well you use your resources to complete this high volume of tasks in a reasonable amount of time. The two concepts work as two sides of the same coin— to be truly productive, businesses need to maintain a high level of efficiency. Businesses have long recognized two foundational ways to increase productivity: streamline the process and leverage technology. In recent years, researchers identified collaboration as one of the driving forces behind productivity.

Simply working toward common goals with greater transparency helps motivate people to overcome challenges. Today, agencies are recognizing this function and working to improve productivity by changing their company culture, optimizing the work process, and adding technology as an aid.

Culture

Building a new culture in the workplace begins by improving the collaborative abilities of each employee. When the proper culture is implemented in an organization, productivity naturally increases as everyone works efficiently to accomplish goals with teams and individuals alike receiving rewards as they are accomplished. Creating this culture does not happen overnight, but through a long-term commitment to a company mission.

Though teamwork is key, a team cannot work together without having a designated space and process through which to accomplish each goal, such as Agency Workspace.

Process

Setting up the proper workflows is the catalyst to increasing your agency’s productivity. Without a defined process, collaboration efforts suffer, but identifying the proper method to accomplish each task as a team can be tricky. Employees need to know what work is completed, what needs to be completed, and who is assigned to each task. This is simple with Agency Workspace. For insurance agents, having a defined process can be crucial to avoiding potential E&O exposure.

We have seen tremendous success for agencies that standardize titles on discussion groupings, label actions, add policy associations, and check accomplished items off of a pre-defined list to ensure that nothing is missed. In addition to these needs, the process needs to be simple enough for group collaboration, while also being thorough enough to protect against mistakes.

Technology

While researchers and business experts often provide recommendations related to improving your workflow and adding additional technology in your office, how these solutions will maximize productivity is often a missing link in this equation. Technology should work as a vessel to improve your agency’s productivity. For an insurance agent, this means having a space designed for agents that helps protect agencies against E&O exposure while also allowing the agents to have access to immediate answers when an insured calls.

Recognizing the interwoven role technology, process, and collaboration play in increasing productivity, EZLynx built the Agency Workspace with the unique needs of an agency in mind. Features like the ability to take a note or work a task are available from anywhere in the system, helping agents handle frequent interruptions without losing their place. Notes and tasks are grouped into logical discussions so anyone in the agency can quickly get up to speed on a specific topic for an insured. Creating agency specific labels help track and quickly identify common activities across the organization. For agencies following standardized procedures, creating checklists is a great way to ensure everyone is following the same steps every time.

EZLynx recognizes that technology is not a magic bullet to improve the productivity of your company. Agency Workspace, which is part of EZLynx Management System, provides agents with the tools and framework necessary to create a process that works to allow agencies to maximize efficiency. Utilizing Agency Workspace can substantially improve the collaborative capabilities of your agency, helping you ACCOMPLISH MORE, Faster.


ONE PLATFORM for your Agency Needs

A lot has changed with EZLynx Management System over the past several years. As your business grows, so do your business needs. Our platform is specifically designed to grow with you to help meet those unique challenges you face. The ability to track premiums, improve your customer service capabilities, and reduce E&O exposure becomes increasingly critical to your success. With these needs in mind, it is surprising that 20 percent of insurance agencies admit to not using a management system, according to the IIABA 2016 Agency Universe Study.

With EZLynx Management System, you will find everything you need to run your business on ONE PLATFORM. Unlike other management systems, EZLynx allows you to keep all of your data in one place, so managing new applications, quoting, creating proposals, and filling in ACORD forms and certificates can be completed without entering new information into a series of other applications, which will increase your overall productivity and accuracy.

Manage Sales

The benefit of keeping all of your information on ONE PLATFORM is immediately evident in the sales process. Whether using the manual application entry or EZLynx Rating Engine, agents can collect risk information on personal and commercial prospects. Once entered, all of the information flows seamlessly into ACORD forms and Agency Forms to send to the carriers. All quotes, manual and real-time, are stored with the prospect’s information to allow you to easily see the best fit and generate a proposal. Throughout the process, agents can securely manage documents and generate forms, such as ID cards or binders, all within EZLynx.

Policy Issue and Servicing

When a prospect becomes an insured, EZLynx Management System will simplify your management responsibilities and your agency’s communications. EZLynx Management System allows you to manage your download and manual policies. If a carrier requires manual entry, the information that you already entered into the application will flow into the policy, saving you time. EZLynx even tracks the status of your policies to provide a quick indication of whether a policy is in force or not. Commission tools will simplify your tracking and payment management, providing you with the information you need to understand your business.

Endorsement processing and certificate generation are time consuming processes for agencies. If a client requests a policy change, EZLynx streamlines the change request process, allowing agents to request, monitor, and verify policy changes with the carrier. To further your customer service capabilities and improve your efficiency, EZLynx expedites your commercial certificate generation process by allowing you to generate certificates within minutes and securely send them to your clients.

Our system will increase the speed and accuracy of your agency’s claims tracking process with downloaded and manual claim support by allowing you to automatically download and keep your agents up to date on the claims process.

Customer Self-Service

For agents with EZLynx Client Center, you can allow your clients to view a summary of their policy and their ID cards. Information presented in Client Center is pulled from EZLynx Management System automatically, so you know your client has the most up to date information. Commercial clients even have the ability to self-generate certificates.

Agency Productivity

EZLynx Management system has several tools focused on increasing agency productivity and collaboration. Agency Workspace within EZLynx Management System will allow you to manage your reminders, notes, and tasks that you depend on to run your agency. Access to the workspace is available throughout EZLynx, so that you can add notes, tasks, and reminders and view notifications without having to navigate away from a page. Add attachments and labels to keep your data organized and multi-task and collaborate with your coworkers, so that you can maximize your team’s potential. Use EZLynx Automation Center to program the automatic creation of tasks based on activities happening in your agency and actions completed by insureds, such as the completion of an eSignature document.

Intelligent Business Analytics

EZLynx Agency Pulse puts the power of ONE PLATFORM to work by combining metrics from your EZLynx Rating Engine and EZLynx Management System. With Agency Pulse in EZLynx Management System, agency owners will receive a snapshot of your agency’s health and be able to evaluate key performance indicators with an automated email report, giving you the ability to pinpoint areas that need improvement. EZLynx provides a robust list of reports and dashboards to help you gain an understanding of your book of business, carrier distribution, productivity, and more. EZLynx Management System will help you grow your book of business by helping you understand your data and where to take action to see improvement.

Growth Opportunities

Do not allow tedious tasks to hold you back from growing your business and leave you in a place of E&O exposure. Use a management system that will grow with you. While EZLynx uses the power of ONE PLATFORM, EZLynx Management System does not force your agency into a one-size-fits-all structure. Additional EZLynx products such as EZLynx Retention Center and EZLynx Sales Center can be enabled seamlessly, allowing you to expand your capabilities within the management system as your business needs grow. Use EZLynx Management System for your agency whether you are a large multi-location agency or a small local office. Our management system gives you the tools you need when you need them.

You can learn more about EZLynx Management System here, or you can fill out the form below with your questions and comments.


Is Your Agency Management System Secure?

Your data is important. Consider how frustrating it is to hear about yet another security breach where your personal information may have been among the data that was leaked. We all expect the services we use to be proactive about keeping our information secure, but did you also consider that your own clients have that very same expectation of you, their agent?

While EZLynx continues to aggressively ensure our system is secure, in the end all it takes is a simple username and password for someone (hopefully you) to access all of your client data in our system.

That is why multi-factor authentication is so important, and that is why we are encouraging you to enable this feature on your account.

What does this mean?

You may have heard of this before, and you likely have already experienced it at your banking website. To put it simply, multi-factor (or two-factor, two-step, etc.) authentication ensures that just because someone has your password, they still cannot access your account until they complete another step to prove their identity.  They must also have access to a second means of authentication, usually in the form of your physical mobile phone, which most likely is never far away from your hand!

How do I turn it on?

It’s very simple and will only take you a couple of minutes.  First, the administrator at your agency will need to log into their EZLynx account, hover over the Settings menu, then choose the Agency Admin link.  From this page, click on the Security Settings tab and choose from the available Two-Step Verification options for your agency.

Once this is done, as each user at your agency logs into their EZLynx account, they will be guided through a quick set up process to enable the feature for their individual account.

We suggest that users choose the mobile phone verification option primarily, but if they also enable the email option, be sure that your users each use a different password for their email account than the one used for their EZLynx account.

The State of Data Security

If you’re an independent insurance agent, your consumer data may be at risk. Data security has changed, and agencies utilizing in-house management systems have become increasingly exposed to exploitation, information loss, and damages. Physical, on-location information storage and hosting methods are placing agents at risk, and your stored information, while seemingly protected, is less secure than you may think.

Data security has become a critical problem for many companies. Between 2005 and 2015, over 800 million records have been stolen as a result of a data breach according to the Identify Theft Resource Center. Current reports reveal that 2016 again shattered all previous records for individual data breach incidents—exposing vital corporate and user information on an epic scale. All indications point to 2017 ending as another record-breaking year as well.

Modern independent insurance agents are particularly at risk. Think about all the consumer information that you have in your system. Insurance agents store names, addresses, birth dates, social security numbers, email addresses, credit card numbers, and more.

While large insurance carriers and agencies have the budgets to maintain comprehensive protection, smaller independent agents are at the greatest risk because they often lack the resources to adequately secure the data that they maintain. A single data breach can damage a well-established insurance agency, harming your valued customers and your reputation in the process. Unfortunately, most insurance agents lack the technical expertise needed to fully prepare for every possible contingency, not to mention the financial resources required to adequately respond to a breach.

Protecting the Home Front

Power outages, fire, vandalism, flooding, and mishandled information all compromise data. User exploitation and malicious activity knows no bounds, leaving a small business’s data at risk. Consider this: Your servers are stolen. You’ve located malware. An employee has corrupted vital data. How will you respond? More importantly, how will you answer irreversible damages?

Companies guarding data must hop through numerous hoops to ensure competent protection. The work involved includes internet monitoring, access allowances, firewalls, encryption, anti-malware services, hacking prevention seminars, staff training, data security enforcement, premises security monitoring, risk assessment, and more. Do you do these things? Cloud-based providers like EZLynx do, and we continue to roll out even more stringent security measures.

Modern Security and Cloud Storage

Cloud-based agency management systems minimize many of your operational risks by offloading your critical infrastructure, removing physical storage needs, and enhancing security. Sensitive information is encrypted, and no mission-critical applications are installed on your local systems. You should protect your agency and customer data with cyber insurance coverage and an agency management system that is working to proactively protect your data.

Web-based agency management systems like EZLynx handle much of your data requirements and security needs, offering immediate agency data access across multiple locations, ensuring everything you need to run your business is available on a single platform.

Independent agents that are relying on a self-hosted agency management system are extremely vulnerable. The fact that your business would come to a grinding stop in the event of data loss notwithstanding, is your agency prepared for the legal and financial burdens of notifying your entire database in the event of a breach? The laws vary from state to state, but one thing remains constant: If you have unencrypted sensitive consumer information on your systems that has been compromised, you have a legal responsibility to notify each and every one of those clients and prospects whose personal information is now out in the open. And make no mistake, they won’t be your clients for long after that!

EZLynx Management System, with our pain-free data migration service, has helped agents move their data from these old, costly systems. You can’t risk waiting.


Claims Download Support comes to EZLynx

Claim tracking is an important part of any agency’s process. The insured’s experience with his or her agent when filing a claim is a significant factor in the relationship. The insured looks to the agent to guide them through the process, answer questions, and help manage expectations. Getting the most up-to-date information from the carrier is an additional burden on the agency’s staff. Claims download alleviates this burden by sending the information directly to EZLynx Management System.

After receiving numerous requests to support downloaded claims at AgentLynx 2017, we are excited to announce that we are implementing full support for claims downloads in our Advanced and Enterprise packages in the coming months!

With this enhancement, you can automatically track and manage claim information, quickly answer questions from the customer’s account, and maintain an overview of your incurred losses.  This feature will automatically update EZLynx Management System with the latest information to give the agent a full picture of the claim status. Claims support is just the latest feature to help your agency increase productivity, serviceability and profitability in EZLynx.

Claims Matching

All claims, manual and downloaded, are listed in the claims transaction page. The look and feel match the policy transactions page with different filters and adjustable columns. The information flows from the carriers to the correct customer and policy for quick access. EZLynx will attempt to match the downloaded claim based on the claim number and policy number, but if we are unable to find the policy, the claim transactions will appear in the unmatched section for you to review.

Claims Downloads Example 1

Summary View

Once the claim is associated to a policy, a summary will display on the customer’s overview page for quick access. The summary displays the most recent information on the claim, adjuster, and payments. This enables anyone with access to the customer to answer questions about the adjuster and payments. Your agency can confidently answer customer questions directly from EZLynx to save time and provide exceptional customer service.

Claims Downloads Example 2

Claim Transaction Details

We provide a detailed view of all the transactions on the policy claim tab. This enables you to see each transaction the carrier sends. We automatically track and calculate the amount paid, reserve, and the incurred loss for each claim as the carrier sends it.

Claims Download Example 3

EZLynx Reporting Gets Supercharged, New Tools for Deeper Analysis

EZLynx, an industry-leading Agency Management System and Comparative Rating vendor for the independent insurance industry, announces new reporting tools to increase the usability of information provided within their ONE PLATFORM™ suite. These enhancements include optimizations and new features that will benefit agencies who want to take full advantage of their system to make intelligent, data-driven business decisions.

“Our primary goal in this update is to make the reports in EZLynx more intuitive. Agents should be able to get actionable information quickly and easily. These updates put EZLynx yet another step beyond our competition.” says John McKay, Director of Sales at EZLynx. “Think of it as management system reporting on steroids, now with the ability to schedule custom reports out to users or teams. This not only brings significant enhancements to the Reporting area in EZLynx, but the underlying technology will also allow us to bring the full force of our reporting capabilities directly into other areas of the product, including Retention Center® and Accounting.”

While the latest enhancements have placed an increased focus on usability, there are also several new important features. “We are very excited about the report scheduling tool,” McKay continues. “With this feature, agents can have reports scheduled to automatically run on a recurring basis. This should save a lot of time for people who run a specific report on a regular basis. In addition, being able to slice and dice the data is a request EZLynx has now fulfilled by way of a Master Report. This will give agents full control of almost every field inside of EZLynx and allow users to apply filters, sorting, charts, paging, and groupings to create custom reports which users can save and run as needed for future use.”

Let’s Take a Closer Look at EZLynx Reporting

The Applicant Summary Report shows agents demographic information on their current policy holders. This report includes valuable information like Active Policies and Average Premium per Customer as well as summary statistics on gender, education level, and marital status.

EZLynx Reporting - Email a Report

Scheduled Reports is a new feature that will enable a report to run on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. You will no longer have to log in to the reports page to run the same report each month; simply have it scheduled to be delivered to your inbox!

EZLynx Reporting - Schedule a Report

These changes are only the beginning. As a company, we are committed to continually improving our product based on the needs of our customers, and that commitment extends to Reporting where we have a grand vision that spans far past 2016.

What’s In YOUR Agency Management System?

So if I were to ask you, “What is your agency’s rate of retention?” (in general, not specifically by line of business), what would your answer be? 80%? 90%? Higher, or lower? Chances are, and I would be willing to wager on this, that your answer would be the same that I hear from most agencies: “Oh, we have a fantastic retention rate, I am sure it is over 90%!”

Well, that is fantastic, except that:

a) There is an excellent chance that your response is incorrect as it is most likely lower than you assumeb) How come you cannot tell me exactly what it is, for each line of business?

b) How come you cannot tell me exactly what it is, for each line of business?

Well, the answer to both of my statements above is very simple, but before we discuss the answers and why, let us chat a bit about retention, and its impact on your business and its employees.

Assuming your agency has a high rate of retention, let’s say 90%. That appears to be an excellent rate, considering all of the outside influences that the independent agents face these days with direct writers, online marketers, and what have you. However, even though 90% appears on the surface to be something to brag about on the golf course with your fellow agents and brokers, a 90% rate of retention very simply means that you now have to work 10% harder than you did last year, just to break even! In addition, let’s also assume that you have been in business for ten years, and each year your agency is operating at a 90% retention level, so when you extrapolate that figure out in reverse, you are constantly having to work harder and harder than the year before, just so that you do not lose what you and your staff worked so diligently for previously!

Let’s now complicate this calculation even further: have your carriers all called you this year and told you that they are going to raise your commission rates, increase profit sharing, and expect you to do less service work? I don’t think so…if anything, your commissions (if they haven’t been reduced), have most likely remained the same. Granted, premiums have increased so you will make up some of the revenue that way, but that is the equivalent of a supermarket raising the price of milk to offset the cost of bread. Furthermore, your agency expenses have been on the rise with labor costs, health care and other insurance costs, rent, utilities, etc., so an increase in premiums does not necessarily offset the 10% loss of clientele.

There are a few different ways to manage this loss of business and revenue. However, you cannot address the issue until you are fully aware of exactly what the issue is, and can definitively determine exactly what the agency’s rate of retention is. So how do you do that? Well, to begin with, you need an automated tool that will help you to measure exactly how you keep your existing business. For instance, as a business owner, you should have at your fingertips the ability to go into your management system, request a report on business retained and have the ability to manage the renewal process. You should also be able to not only see this information when you request it but also be alerted to indicators throughout the policy year on factors that may cause the policy to not renew. If you have this information automatically provided to you and your appropriate staff on a regular basis, you may then implement a process and schedule tasks to address these areas of concern, before you receive the call requesting a BOR (broker of record), or copy of their existing declarations page, or even worse: an LPR (lost policy release) which indicates that the coverage has been replaced.

Don’t work harder to generate less income…let automation do this for you. EZLynx has patented tools to automate these processes for you. For additional information on how EZLynx can help you and your business, please contact us today!

 


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.
