Carriers, agents/brokers, vendors and industry experts have been discussing single-entry, multiple company interface (SEMCI) for years. “It’s coming; it’s going to make a big impact on the industry,” they’ve heard from peers, media and industry experts. Whether it’s called SEMCI or real time, the time may have finally arrived, as carriers by the handful have implemented real time over the past few months. MetLife Auto & Home, Peerless Insurance Co., Farmers Insurance Group of Cos., The Progressive Group of Insurance Cos. and The Main Street America Group are some of the most recent to implement.

MetLife Auto & Home, New York, launched an integrated SEMCI-based solution, branded as PowerLink, which will provide the company’s independent agent/producer force with greater convenience and ease of doing business. Under the PowerLink name, the company will partner with comparative rating and management system vendors to introduce new technology solutions to agents across the country.
