What’s in the Client Service Center?
Your Client Service Center is a convenient option to offer 24/7 access to common client service requests. Completed forms will be emailed to your agency and available within ActiveAgency Dashboard. We can also integrate Agency Management System (AMS) portal solutions, such as Applied Systems CSR24 or Vertafore AMS360.
An all-in-one service and sales tool.
The Client Service Center is available to your clients around to clock to help them manage their policies on their own schedule. They can easily complete a number of common requests including reporting a claim, requesting a policy change, certificate, or auto ID card, and pay their bill. Making these available right on your website saves time so you can focus on other things. It’s also easy to share any of these forms via email or chat if the client can’t find them on their own.
The Policy Review form is exceptionally helpful. It’s a nice way to capture information before the renewal date arrives. It has “smarts” built into it and asks relevant questions based on your client’s insurance needs. You can use this form to identify coverage gaps and opportunities to cross-sell.
Using forms to close coverage gaps works.
Ashley Brower-Whitney, President at Harbor Brenn Insurance Agencies, shared this success story with us.
We are newer users of ActiveAgency and use it in conjunction with Rocket Referrals and our management system which is AMS360. I am BLOWN away with how amazing these tools have been for our agency.
We started sending out renewal review emails with links to the Policy Review form in the Client Center on our website in early December. Rocket Referrals has the automation that pulls in accounts that are renewing within 45 days and sends the emails to the insured. We have about a 24% conversion rate right now for completing the form.
I cannot tell you how many coverage gaps we’ve discovered and opportunities we’ve had to build the relationship with our clients and make sure they’re still covered correctly. It still baffles me when people make significant improvements to their homes and never think to call their agency, but this is a fantastic way to catch it!
We are also starting to utilize some of the other automation that Rocket Referrals offers, like cross selling accounts, winning back prior clients, etc. Utilizing Clickable Coverage within these emails and driving people to our website, I’m super optimistic!
Whoa! We’re blown away, too!
Thousands of form submissions.
Do people really submit forms? They sure do. Look at these numbers!
Your Client Service Center can help boost sales.
Tell prospects about it.
Prospects want to know that they’ll be taken care of. Your Client Service Center allows you to collect forms 24/7, so be sure to let prospects know they’ll never be left without options.
Use the Policy Review form.
Send the Policy Review form link to clients a month or two before policy renewal to simplify the process. This is also an excellent opportunity to pursue cross-sell initiatives.
Put that Refer Us form to work.
A referral is the highest compliment you can get. Make it easy for your best clients to refer you to their friends, family, and colleagues.
It isn’t called the Client Service Center for nothing.
Taking care of your clients is what it’s all about. With the Client Service Center, you can make sure folks can submit requests when it’s convenient for them.
Keep everything in its place.
No one wants to go hunting around a website looking for a form to request what they need. With ActiveAgency, your Client Service Center keeps all your forms in one, easy-to-find location.
Ask for information.
When you’re sending out email communications to clients, include a link to your Client Service Center so they have it handy when they need it. You can also direct people to specific forms if they chat, call, text or email you, and you need to gather more information.
Find your next new hire.
While not technically for servicing clients, the Join Our Team form is another form available with ActiveAgency. And if you use it to find the perfect CSR, then all the better!
Manage your Client Service Center with ease.
While you’re making it easier for your clients to do business with you, your website makes it easy to manage how you do it. Log into ActiveAgency Dashboard on your website, and once you’re there, you have lots of options!
You’ll be able to manage forms and submissions, check for spam, request help, and more.
Frequently asked questions.
You asked. We answered! Some questions come up often, so we’ve compiled the answers here.
Your website comes equipped with simple lead generation and service forms that we’ve found to be effective for most clients. If are looking for something different, reach out to our Client Experience Team, and we’ll work with you to come up with the best solution.
While the forms were created to collect the most common pieces of information, there may be a time when an update or additional field is needed. If so, let us know, and we’d be happy to discuss your options with you.
Long or complicated forms and those that ask many sensitive questions tend to be disregarded. If a prospect doesn’t know you, they may be concerned about giving a lot of information. Simple forms get better results, and they also offer you the opportunity to reach out and follow up, giving that personal touch folks love.
You can view all your form submissions on ActiveAgency Dashboard at any time. You’ll also receive a notification email to the address you’ve provided when a new form comes in. If a Hello Producer tag was used, that individual will be notified as well.
ActiveAgency comes with Akismet, a well-known spam filter, already enabled. However, occasionally, a spam form will get through the filter. If it’s excessive or you have concerns, reach out to the Client Experience Team for assistance.
Use your Client Service Center to the fullest.
Now that you know just how useful the Client Service Center can be, it’s time to put it to use. Tell prospects about it and let them know you’re there for them. Make sure clients are aware it exists so they can easily find what they need. Send out the Policy Review form before annual renewals to catch those cross- and upsell opportunities.
With such a powerful tool in your back pocket, you can’t go wrong!
