Agencyport Software and NxTech, Inc., two leading providers of Agency/Company workflow solutions to property and casualty insurance carriers, today announced they have teamed to further help carriers streamline and optimize policy distribution workflow with their agency partners.
Agencyport’s web-based distribution platform, AgencyPortal™, automates key front-end transactions between Carriers and their producers over the web via upload. NxTech’s ConneXt™ and AL3Expert Services™ provide a complete solution for carriers to enable ACORD Download with their Agents’ systems. Together, the solutions provide a round trip of data between an Agency and a Carrier.
“The Download process is highly-specialized, and its workflow, while related, sits outside of Agencyport’s focus,” said Drew Tripp, Vice President of Sales at Agencyport. “At the same time, it is a critical element to the agent/carrier workflow, and we are delighted to be able to refer customers seeking Download to a best-of-breed provider and partner.”
“Less rekeying, better workflow, fewer errors and happy agents are constant goals for both Agencyport and NxTech. Working together, we can make certain the round trip of data is consistent and highly effective for both the Agent and the Carrier,” said Bill Tedrick, CEO and Co-Founder at NxTech.
“We’re proud to be able to offer a complete solution to AgencyPortal™ users,” said Don Chase, Executive Vice President and Head of Partner Relations at Agencyport. “NxTech and its staff have more experience in Download than any other provider in the industry. Our companies have similar track records, cultures and customer-centric values. We are also both fully committed to the ACORD standards. It was these commonalities that led us to the agreement to bring this best-of-breed solution to the marketplace.”
