BOSTON, MA – February 27, 2013 – Agencyport Software, a leading provider of software and services to the P&C insurance and reinsurance industries, recently earned Gold-level Novarica Average Customer Experience (ACE) Rankings for both its AgencyPortal and AgencyConnect software solutions, for the second year in a row. Agencyport is the only provider to achieve Gold-level rankings in the Agent Portal & Connectivity Solutions category.
The rankings, conducted by insurance technology analyst firm Novarica, recognize solution providers whose technology delivers exemplary value to their customers. They are based on surveys of senior technology and operational executives at insurer, reinsurer and financial institution clients who have direct experience with the vendor product and organization. Novarica ACE Rankings are produced independently and not sponsored by vendors. They provide a completely transparent, unedited and unbiased perspective of how well a solution or provider meets its customers' needs. To measure customer experience, senior technology and operational executives who have direct experience with Agencyport's products and organization completed the survey.
Both Agencyport solutions, AgencyPortal and AgencyConnect, were ranked high in the areas of Staff, Organization, Function and Technology, receiving overall scores of 97 and 96 on a 100 point scale, respectively. Additionally, AgencyPortal received 99 out of 100, and AgencyConnect received 98 out of 100 in the category of Overall Customer Satisfaction. Novarica's Gold Ranking status is achieved when ten customers review a specific solution.
"We do not consider Agencyport a vendor, but truly a good business partner," said one of the participating clients.
AgencyPortal is a state-of-the-art, web-based distribution platform that allows P&C carriers of all sizes to execute key business transactions quickly and easily with their channel partners—agents, brokers, MGAs and policy holders. AgencyConnect is the industry's leading agency interface solution, integrating more carriers with more agency management systems than any other product. It is the foundation for Agencyport's current Connect5 solution.
"We're glad that both AgencyPortal and AgencyConnect continue to score high in all categories of Novarica's ACE Rankings," said Agencyport Co-CEO Steve Hauck. "We're also extremely grateful for the time our customers took to participate in this important survey, and we look forward to continuing to provide them with the best service and innovative products in the marketplace."
