Frequently Asked Questions
With simple, straightforward answers.
PDFs are designed for printing and not for editing on a computer, so the effort it takes a client to complete an application on a PDF is significant. Not only do they have to figure out how to add text to a page and fit it into a small space, but then they have to print, sign, scan and then email it to you. On Broker Buddha, clients can answer questions in the browser easily and sign it digitally. Also, because applications are pre-filled with prior year data, it's much easier for clients to update and submit. Broker Buddha also sends gentle reminder emails on a periodic basis to your clients.
