Stamford, Conn. – IVANS, a provider of corporate connectivity solutions and services, worked with personal lines P&C giant Progressive Insurance to implement agent-enabled single sign-on technology through IVANS Transformation Station that makes it easier for agents to quote and service their policies, and streamline their workflow. Once Progressive’s agents update their real-time account via their agency management system, and register at Progressive’s Web site, ForAgentsOnly.com (FAO), they will no longer have to enter their user ID and password when bridging over to the FAO website. By utilizing this technology, Progressive now updates the agents’ credentials within Transformation Station on the agent’s behalf. As a result, any time the agent changes his password on Progressive’s FAO website, Transformation Station is automatically updated, thereby enabling a secure, single sign-on to both Transformation Station and the FAO website, and faster access to their policy data.

Single sign-on (SSO) technology enables a user to log-in once and gain access to multiple software systems without being prompted to log-in again. This technology eliminates having to manage the overwhelming number of different log-on IDs and passwords that agents are faced with when accessing multiple carrier websites on a daily basis. As a result, Progressive agents are able to take real-time technology to the next level and further accelerate the insurance transaction process for themselves and their clients.
