COLLABORATION TOOL FOR COMMERCIAL INSURERS

ProspX Inc., an Austin, Texas-based developer of on-demand sales collaboration and automation platform technology for the commercial insurance industry, announced the release of ProspX SalesConnect 4.0.

The new release features EmailConnect, which is designed to make it easier for brokers and carriers to connect in real-time to critical information, expertise and each other in order to streamline communication, boost sales productivity and increase revenue.

EmailConnect enables users to collaborate on an opportunity via e-mail without the need to login to ProspX. The system will automatically log and track the conversation and the information exchanged.

The company claims the e-mail-driven workflow motivates rapid, high-quality responses because providers of information and expertise are not required to alter their workflow or be inconvenienced in any way in order to provide meaningful contributions to a business opportunity.

WEB-BASED RATING ENGINE FOR INDEPENDENT AGENTS

Chicago-based Quotepro Inc., a comparative quoting solutions provider, has released a rating engine intended for independent agents.

The company says the Quotepro Consumer Rating Engine was developed to help independent agencies that are growing increasingly threatened by insurance carriers that market directly to consumers via the Internet.

The Quotepro Consumer Rating Engine can be added to any existing Web site, and is designed to enable the independent agent to have an attractive, robust presence on the Web, and to compete directly with direct-to-consumer carriers, Quotepro says.

The product also is designed to fully automate the sales cycle so that the independent agent's client can determine the price of the proposed insurance policy, pay for the policy or make an initial policy payment with a credit card, and receive the policy and identification card by e-mail within a few minutes.
