Distribution Strategies to Drive Growth


For many carriers, the most important distribution channel remains independent agents. Insurers have an opportunity to grab more market share and gain a lasting competitive advantage by integrating their agent compensation, compliance, and services into a single, comprehensive management solution. But insurers can't achieve this integration within the current environment of fragmented systems, inconsistent data, and inflexible compensation programs.  Read the new eBook where Karlyn Carnahan, Research Director at Celent and Kevin Gray, Product Marketing Manager at IBM discuss the challenges facing carriers, the key strategies needed to drive growth, as well as best practices in distribution management. You will discover how you can:

• Grow market share through the execution of a strategic approach to producer lifecycle management
• Gain competitive advantage in your distribution efforts by consolidating various processes involved in producer management – compensation, compliance, and service
• Create an integrated approach to deliver higher quality service, more reliable information, and lower costs
