LISLE, IL--(Marketwire - Dec 4, 2012) - Renewing a professional liability insurance policy has never been easier for small accounting firms and solo practitioners. AmerInst Professional Services, Ltd., a nationwide professional liability insurance provider, has enhanced its web-enabled technology to provide policyholders with smart choices for renewing their insurance coverage. One click on an icon affords online functionality for small firms which may have been excluded from this benefit because of size and revenue requirements.
The renewal application is one page, pre-filled with information that the policyholder completed the prior year. With a simple click, the highlighted page can be updated, marked up or printed. Upon passing the underwriting guidelines, the policyholder can see a quote, provide an e-signature, pay-online and view other quote options. Obtaining comprehensive coverage online becomes easy, fast, secure and paperless.
"Many insurance companies have set a high threshold for online functionality and smaller accounting firms may not meet the revenue requirements to qualify," says Pat Cosulich, Chief Information Officer at AmerInst Professional Services, Ltd. "While they may get a real time quote or make a credit card payment, there's still additional paperwork. We eliminate the manual process, with a programmed system that allows us to engage with our policyholders and remind them when it's time to renew."
AmerInst Professional Services Ltd. draws upon the commitment and expertise of its parent, AmerInst Insurance Company, which was created by CPAs for CPAs and was a reinsurer of the AICPA plan for two decades. The professional liability insurance program is written through United States Fire Insurance Company, a member of the Crum & Forster insurance group (C&F). C&F has been in business since 1896, is well regarded for its financial strength, and is rated A (Excellent) by A. M. Best Co.
