New integration allows Allstate agents to instantly quote and respond to new sales leads and efficiently follow up to write more policies
Los Angeles – June 3, 2009 – The playing field for insurance agents is quickly changing and Allstate® agents are stepping up to leverage the latest technologies to outsell the competition. Leads360 and Quote Burst have partnered to provide a seamlessly integrated way for Allstate agents to receive, quote, follow-up and track new sales leads. The integrated system provides on-the-fly quoting for all new leads, which completely eliminates data entry into the Allstate Alliance system, and improves contact and conversion rates. This service ensures that sales leads receive quotes and follow-up automatically, 24 hours a day.
A dramatic divide is emerging between agents who use traditional methods of sales and marketing and those who are taking advantage of the latest technology. Today, 75% of insurance buyers are looking online for information according to comScore data and more than 95% of potential new insurance buyers do research online according to the Pew Internet Survey (2008). The most productive Allstate agents have leveraged this market transformation and have implemented Leads360 and Quote Burst to more efficiently serve these customers. “Our data shows that top-performing agent are those who effectively manage and respond to internet leads,” said Dan Morefield, President and CEO of Leads360.
The most productive agencies have been relying on internet leads from companies such as AgentInsider®, AllWebLeads, InsuranceAgents.com, NetQuote, QuoteWizard and many more. However, without Leads360 and Quote Burst, there has never been an effective way of handling a high volume of leads. “We are able to provide an unparalleled sales and customer service advantage for Allstate agents,” says Stephen Bentley, President and CEO of Quote Burst. Now Allstate agents have a significant advantage over other captive and independent agents because they can receive, distribute, and track their leads in Leads360 and provide automatic quotes for every lead using Quote Burst’s integrated Typhoon service.
The Leads360-Quote Burst integration is now available for Allstate agents.
