Assurance Ensight™ To Provide Groundbreaking Digital Service Offering For LifeMark Partner Affiliates
BALTIMORE, Sept. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- LifeMark Partners, Inc., one of the nation's largest independent national insurance marketing organizations, today announced a partnership with Assurance, an InsurTech technology provider of cloud-based sales and data acceleration platforms for life and annuity products. LifeMark Partners is now offering Assurance's groundbreaking new SaaS-based service, Ensight™, to its partners to provide streamlined proposal visualization for permanent life products.
"Our partners have come to recognize LifeMark for our access to the most effective and innovative resources in the industry, and Assurance EnsightTM is a powerful addition to our line-up," said William Shelow, CLU®, ChFC®, CPCU®, LLIF, president and chief executive officer, LifeMark Partners. "This tool enables our partners and their agents the ability to instantly sort and identify the best life insurance product for each client's unique needs and priorities during their appointment process, which is a big step toward the transparency and service consumers today are after."
Several market and regulatory industry trends are now underway to drive new requirements within the customer experience and client engagement process for financial professionals. The new Department of Labor (DoL) regulation increases the importance of delivering and retaining product comparison proposals during the client recommendation process. Financial professionals are also meeting new consumer expectations and achieving greater workflow efficiency by moving many client presentations online, through Skype™, GoToMeeting™ and other virtual communications applications.
Assurance's new proposal visualization platform, Ensight™, is the first platform in the market to visualize permanent life products, based on seamless data integration with the Ebix WinFlex® illustration engine. Financial professionals can visually walk clients through policy design, comparison and recommendations in real time. Ensight™ enables a streamlined presentation workflow for the case designer and producer, while generating an interactive way to present the permanent life insurance suite in a consumer-friendly manner.
"LifeMark Partners is not only one of the largest independent national insurance marketing organizations in the United States, it is also one of the most forward-thinking. We are extremely thrilled to partner with the LifeMark Partners team and provide an exciting new digital service offering for LifeMark's affiliate BGAs," stated Bill Unrue, CEO of Assurance.
