Data Entry SUCKS!
Data entry REALLY sucks. No one ever wants to do it, but its such an important and fundamental part of the insurance application process. To be honest, I am not even sure what is considered the worst part of data entry. That it's boring, or that it’s a waste of valuable time. Time that you could be selling, consulting, and making a blueprint for the expansion of your operation. A bigger problem, is that because people dread data entry they often try to cut corners, put it off for too long, or do it incorrectly.
PDFs Are Dumb
I live my life with three core values...Adventure, Hospitality & Creativity. And while "going paperless" may be creative for some, I have a bigger goal. I want to eliminate PDFs.
PDFs are the Devil —Solving the Major Pain Point of Carrier Supplementals
Face it, paper insurance forms are a hassle. Often, you and your insureds have to fill out tons of paperwork — a process that takes hours. PDF forms aren't much better. Most of the forms ask a bunch of the same questions. Why should you have to answer them twice! Clients often need to print a document, sign it, scan it and send it back to their broker. Surely, there's an easier way to process applications?
The People We Value Most
