Do you think that online insurance software is the best thing since sliced bread? Is it the right fit for the insurance industry?
I would say so, but then I’ve always been a fan of web based, ever since Yahoo Mail (1998?). In any case the advantages are well known…
- Never install anything
- Always up-to-date
- Safe & secure
- Access from anywhere
- Works on every operating system/cellphone
- No IT staff are required
- No servers required
But for many insurance agencies, these advantages are not plain. The reason is a simple one: many insurance broking companies have not had a chance yet to use web based software for work, and some not even at home. Describing the advantages to the uninitiated can be a hurdle.
What do you think? Is web based insurance agency software the panacea to deal with the distributed nature of our insurance operations, or is it all hype?
As the economic crisis begins to lift and people start to buy in to software again, we should decide!
Well? Does it work for you or not?
