Electronic submission of workers' compensation, commercial auto and general liability applications will soon become easier than ever for most Wausau Insurance producers, brokers and agents. Building on its current Applied System's interface, Wausau can now accept submissions from the AMS Sagitta Browser and AFW Online products.

This release makes Wausau's producer interface available to the majority of Wausau's producers and dramatically increases the opportunity for more efficient workflow.    "Wausau is committed to providing continued innovation to support our brokers and customers," said Keith Braxton, Wausau's vice president for distribution management.  "We see this launch as an extension of our approach to being a company that defines the standards of our industry."

Wausau is planning a series of additional steps to increase the ease of working with Wausau, for both brokers and commercial agents.

By utilizing Wausau's interface process, submission data is transmitted directly from the agency management system, converted into ACORD XML and sent into Wausau's interface database. Once at Wausau, data will feed to workflow and rating systems within minutes and also trigger third party resources.

Users of producer interface will save time and find improved quote accuracy. Brokers and customers will benefit from quick and easy export of submission data, immediate confirmation and faster quote times from Wausau. In addition, more accurate quotes will be produced due to the eliminations of the need to re-key data.  Wausau expects its producer interface to become an industry standard.

Wausau is piloting this latest producer interface enhancement with a group of contracted Wausau producers that utilize AMS systems and TransactNOW. Wausau plans to quickly expand the pilot to more producers before the end of the year. Future plans include adding additional line capabilities to include Wausau's entire product line.
