Carriers make massive investments in managing risk with data. They have now taken an additional step of supporting their agency force by investing in data to support their agents.
Huge thank you to Central Insurance, Selective Insurance & Westfield Group for purchasing RISE reports for their OH agency partners! By purchasing RISE, they are helping their agencies better understand their business which will enable them to grow strategically and successfully compete in the modern marketplace.
As momentum builds and engagement from our agency partners and company partners increases, we continue to improve our customer experience. Data entry times are decreasing and we recently added a live chat feature for agents to ask questions as they complete their profile. You can now benchmark your performance against your own Year over Year (YOY), those agencies in your region, state and fastest growing. We are working on a few additional enhancements, so please stay tuned as we roll them out!
We also have the ability to create a unique code for agents to use to purchase the report FOR FREE through their carrier partner! If you are a carrier partner interested in partnering with the OIA to help your agencies grow their business and compete strategically, contact us today! If you’re an agency owner and interested in obtaining a RISE Report, be sure to check with your carrier partner and see if they’re willing to co-op with OIA!
We are grateful for Central, Selective & Westfield’s commitment to improving the health of the IA channel. We’d love for you to join us on this journey to improving the health & profitability of the IA channel.
