3 Mistakes Insurance Agency Owners Must Stop Making2018-03-26T18:20:11+00:00

3 Mistakes Insurance Agency Owners Must Stop Making

1. Stop communicating like it’s 1988

Even your most loyal customers might leave you if you’re not willing to text with them. Win new customers and increase retention by communication through texting (both SMS and MMS), video calling, screen sharing, and Facebook messenger. The easier you make their lives, the more loyal your customers will be to you, and your agency will grow even more.

2. Stop running piecemeal systems  

Save time and money by unifying your communications. Replace your current phone provider with Bridge and get phone calling, inter-office chat, texting, file sharing, faxing, and marketing broadcasts all in one place! Plus, easily save records into any management system.  Integration really is the key to productivity, excellent customer service, and reduced E&O exposure.

3. Stop wondering what your employees do all day

You’ve got to know what you’re paying for. See everything your employees are doing on texting, phone calls, screenshots, chat, and more — even if they are working remotely. Bridge will also greatly lower your E&O exposure.

The good news

Bridge, the amazing enterprise VoIP app for insurance agencies, can solve all these problems for your agency starting at only $25/month. Bridge will replace your current phone system and integrate with your current management system.

Click on any of the links above to learn more, and you’ll wonder how you ever ran your agency without Bridge. Ready to empower your agency?  Schedule an appointment today with one of The Kotter Group’s InsureTech experts or try Bridge yourself with our do-it-yourself demo.
