Consumer Quoting Enhanced Lead Captures

EZLynx Consumer Quoting is already a great tool that allows consumers to self-enter the majority of their risk information, but requiring everyone to complete the full form is counter-productive sometimes. People are busy and often don’t want to spend time completing a long form. EZLynx Lead Portal is a new feature available for new and existing Consumer Quoting portals.

It collects basic lead info (name, phone, email), immediately creates a personal or commercial applicant account in EZLynx, but makes home and auto quoting an optional part of the consumer’s process.

  • Quickly capture leads on your website.
  • Capture leads for any line of business.
  • Custom questions, regarding line of business for example, are coming soon.
  • Advanced integration options for using a single portal in multiple places.

Client Center Gets a New Modern Look 

Over the next few weeks, the Client Center is rolling out a new, clean and modernized look. This update is the first in a series planned for Client Center in 2017, to make it as beautiful as it is useful to your customers and your agency!

  • More modern, neutral appearance.
  • Fully responsive for an optimal experience on all devices.
  • Improved iframe support.

Customer Age Report

You’ll love the new Customer Age Report because it retrieves applicants and co-applicants of designated ages.  This is very useful for email marketing campaigns – target the people who are most interested in a specific message.  For example, are 20-year-olds interested in life insurance?  Probably not.  You’ll sell many more life policies to people 50 and over. Notable filters include:

  • Applicant Type – active, inactive, prospect.
  • Relation – applicant or co-applicant.
  • Birth Month – choose last, current or next.
  • Age – select all or any combination of ages between 14 thru 100.
  • Manage Columns – select columns to display on the report.

To streamline EZLynx Accounting, we’ve made changes to policy setup that will better track the intricacies of policy management. With these changes, you can monitor three entities involved in policy underwriting: billing, master and writing companies. To accommodate this new feature, our previous Settings icon option called Manage Billing Companies is changed to Manage Markets/Carriers. Now you can manage wholesale brokers, MAPs, carriers, and other markets. Click here to learn more.
