Webcetera Announces Enhancements and Additional Features to Consumer Portal with Consumer Portal Pro

FLOWER MOUND, TX – April 25, 2011 – Webcetera®, the leading provider of insurance industry real-time solutions and maker of EZLynx®, expands agents’ web-based sales options and capabilities with the release of Consumer Portal Pro (CPPro™).

With the addition of CPPro™ to an agency’s web site, agents will see more completions of personal lines quote requests, increasing the number of quality sales leads and the closing of more new business.

CPPro™ expands an agency’s online marketing by presenting the consumer a highly refined means of quoting themselves through the carriers represented by the agency. The application automatically follows up with consumers that did not complete a quote request, provides insight to an agency’s online consumer profile, and facilitates the consumers’ rapid completion of the quoting process with optimized forms and pre-fill of vehicle information.

“No other vendor has Webcetera’s strong commitment to the independent insurance distribution channel and its continued success,” says Gerry Keeley, VP Sales. “While older marketing channels continue to decline and new competitors continue to emerge, CPPro provides the needed edge to assure the agent’s growth, not just survival. Now agents can analyze and target their web traffic and hold lead sources accountable. Consumers have a quality experience, receiving live home and auto quotes using the features that we have released for CPPro.”

EZLynx Delivers Growth for Florida Agent

I have been working with EZLynx for two years. I don’t know what I did without it! Due to the ease and speed of the quoting process, it has allowed me to offer time efficient accurate quotes to my customers in a fraction of the time I was able to do before. Prior to EZLynx it would take an hour or more to quote one customer with 8 carriers and now it can be done in minutes. EZLynx significantly reduces the potential of data entry errors by not having to re-enter the same information in multiple quoting formats. Best of all, I can retrieve prior quotes when the customer requests me to shop their rate and all the information is already in the system.

Since all of my carriers are on EZLynx, I input the information once and within minutes, generate enough information to narrow my choices down to the most competitive carriers. Additionally, it allows me to quote each carrier every time which helps to maintain my agency contracts. EZLynx has been instrumental in improving my auto production and assisting in the growth of my agency.

Comparative Auto and Home Rating with EZLynx

Flower Mound, TX, September 2, 2007 – If you are an independent insurance agent who writes auto or home insurance through more than two carriers – you know how time consuming and error prone it can be to re-key the same information over and over. In addition, you know how hard it is to stay up-to-speed with each company’s ever changing insurance software and websites. All things considered, finding the right company to place a risk is very time consuming. Gone are the days where you could look at a risk and know right away which company to place them with.
