DocuSign and Progressive Insurance Partner to Create Special Offer for Agents
DocuSign’s Digital Transaction Management Platform Drives ROI and Enhances Client Experience for Insurance Industry Professionals
SEATTLE—June 12, 2014—DocuSign, Inc. (DocuSign®) announced today that the company has partnered with Progressive Insurance to create a special offer for Progressive agents leveraging DocuSign’s Digital Transaction Management (DTM) platform and electronic signature solution. DocuSign helps agents and brokers better compete for new business, close policies faster, and serve their customers better with an easier, faster, more convenient and secure transaction experience. DocuSign not only integrates with the systems and processes already in use by independent insurance agents, but also delivers mobile solutions to support in-person transactions – anytime, anywhere, on any device.
“From saving your agency time and money to providing better protection for your agency, we know the selection of the right e-signature vendor is very important,” says Dwight Hager, director of distribution, central region at Progressive Insurance. “Progressive is pleased to announce a special offer for independent agents from trusted e-signature provider DocuSign now available on ForAgentsOnly.com.”
Today more than 400 insurance companies and the industry’s largest brokers turn to DocuSign to accelerate document workflows and capture signatures instead of printing, faxing, scanning, and overnighting documents for signature – all of which can put revenue and reputation with clients at risk.
“Insurance brokers and agents know that business success is dependent on signing up new policies, delighting clients with exceptional service and running your business better than competitors,” adds Sharon Robles, independent Progressive Insurance broker at Sharon Robles Agency, LLC. “DocuSign drives my fast-paced workflow and helps me close as many as 90% of my quotes. The rapid ability to increase the volume of transactions with DocuSign is a true coup for my agency. With DocuSign, we packed away the printers and scanners and can now capture signatures digitally from anyone, anywhere and anytime.”
Key benefits of DocuSign for Progressive agents include:
- Increase speed to revenue – DocuSign eliminates NIGO (‘Not In Good Order’) documents by guiding applicants through the signing process to ensure fields, initials, and signatures are never missed. This helps to accelerate ‘speed to revenue’ by closing applications faster the first time.
- Improve office workflow to reduce costs – DocuSign eliminates the costs of printing, faxing, scanning, and overnighting documents for signature, as well as staff time to track down documents and signatures, and rekey data from paper applications.
- Delight and impress clients – Clients get an easier, faster, more secure way to interact with their agent or broker, completing documents online in minutes at their convenience.
- Reduce E&O (Errors & Omissions) exposure – DocuSign helps businesses more easily obtain signatures on all needed forms, both those sent on to carriers and those required for business records. Signers are required to fill out and sign forms completely, providing more consistency in documentation. DocuSigned documents are then stored securely in the cloud to provide better compliance with agency E&O policy.
“We use DocuSign for nearly 75% of our applications for new insurance policies—everything from home insurance, auto insurance, liabilities policies, large commercial accounts, and life insurance,” says Mike Brouwers, Progressive Insurance broker at The Brouwers Agency, LLC. “DocuSign has drastically improved efficiency in our office and reduced our postage expense by a marked amount.”
The DocuSign special offer for Progressive agents is currently available in Missouri and Illinois, and will be rolled-out to additional states. Insurance brokers and agents who sell Progressive’s products can access the DocuSign offer at https://www.docusign.com/offer/progressive.
