It seems that everyone is jumping on the wireless bandwagon. From cell phones to PDAs to wireless pagers, both professionals and consumers are seeking new, more efficient means of communication. The fast-paced growth of wireless technology in other industries hints at the tremendous potential benefits these solutions may hold for insurance.With wireless technology, agents can have a continuous connection to their information resources, management staff can monitor business from any location, or instantly respond to time-sensitive communications, and clients can look forward to faster response times. That means support issues that once took 24 hours and two or three phone calls can now be resolved in a matter of minutes via wireless e-mail.

Perhaps the most notable benefit will be the insurance carrier's ability to provide proactive service to its sales force. Proactive in the sense that insurance agents will no longer have to call in or log in to review pending business or to find out when their commission checks will be mailed.
