Insurance Networking News recently interviewed Steven Hauck, co-founder and president of AgencyPort Insurance Services Inc., a Boston-based provider of Web-based agency portal and agency interface software for P&C companies. Hauck's experience with Web-based standards includes nine years in a variety of financial services sales and marketing management positions with The E*Trade organization, New York. Hauck has been active in the insurance industry since founding AgencyPort in 2000.INN: What are the benefits to carriers of incorporating ACORD XML standards into agency-facing Web technology?

HAUCK: The benefit is improved workflow for both agents and carriers. Carriers that adopt ACORD XML are able to speak "the language" of the agency systems, providing real-time services that allow agents to move data from their agent's agency management systems into the carrier's environment.
