“Agent reaction during the development and pilot phase of the tool has been fantastic,” said Damon Hostetter, Senior Vice President of ACE Recreational Marine Insurance. “Even agents with limited boat insurance experience are finding the tool incredibly easy to use.
ACE EZQuote presents a great opportunity for general personal lines agents to capture additional boat business. For boat insurance specialist agents, the ease and speed of ACE EZQuote translates into more productivity for their staff and faster service for their clients. Coupled with the excellent coverage we offer, ACE EZQuote will give agents a strong competitive advantage as we head into the peak of the boating season.”
Key features of ACE’s new quoting tool for boats less than 27 feet in length include:
- Most quotes can be completed in less than four minutes.
- The quotes are exact and do not require additional information before binding.
- If necessary, quotes in process can be saved and completed at a later time.
- “Smart data fields” appear or disappear to maximize efficiency. For example, fields for Trailer coverage will only appear on the Policy Issuance screen if a Trailer was indicated on the Vessel/Coverage screen.
- Premium for different limits and deductibles can be compared side by side.
- With just a few additional clicks, a quote letter, binder or application can be emailed to the client.
- Without leaving the screen, policy issuance can be ordered.
