For many years insurance agents have used comparative raters to process their personal lines quotes.  Many agents are not aware of commercial lines comparative raters that are on the market, right now, all online, with Real-time quoting for Business Owners Policy, Commercial Auto, & Workers Compensation.

Today, I would like to point out two important items you may not know when it comes to commercial comparative raters:

  1. Efficiency – no longer do you need to go to each carriers website to enter data.  Enter it once in a comparative rater and the software populates the carriers website on your behalf.  Talk about “reserving the market”, now we’re talking.
  2. Opportunity – if you have more than 2 or 3 carrier appointments you cannot afford to go to each carriers website for quoting.  It costs the agent too much money, especially doing high transaction, low premium business.  Using a comparative rater allows you to take advantage of every opportunity for each of your carrier appointments.  More opportunity = more business.
