Leads360, SEMCAT Partner to Bring Fully-Integrated Lead Management System and Comparative Rater to Independent Insurance Agents

New Integration Connects Two Essential Technologies to Help Insurance Agents Generate New Business

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - July 13, 2010) -  In an effort to streamline the sales process and make independent insurance agents more successful, Leads360, the industry leader in sales lead management software, today announced a seamless integration with Allied Strategy's SEMCAT quoting solution. The new integration enables independent insurance agents to manage leads and retrieve accurate, bindable quotes from all of their appointed carriers with one streamlined platform, thereby closing the gap between generated leads and revenue.

Coupling Leads360's lead management system with SEMCAT's comparative quoting engine, the integration allows agents to instantly and securely send the data received through Leads360's lead management system to the SEMCAT program to quickly generate insurance quotes with 100 percent accuracy. A process that would normally take 10-20 minutes per carrier to quote by hand is now made possible without any re-typing and results in quotes from each carrier in a fraction of the time.

Leads360's Web-based lead management software helps sales teams to streamline their processes and enables timely follow-up and greater sales results. While the software is flexible enough to accommodate the unique workflow of sales organizations of all sizes in any industry, it is specifically designed to address the needs of the insurance industry. Today, more than 400 insurance companies use Leads360's software to receive, distribute, contact, follow-up and convert more leads into customers. The end result is improved sales and increased profitability.

"As the competition in the insurance industry continues to grow, this integration will give independent agents the leverage they need to work more quickly and accurately to close the deal," said Jeff Solomon, Leads360 founder and senior vice president of product and marketing. "We are pleased to partner with SEMCAT to help insurance agents achieve greater sales results."

SEMCAT's engine enables agents to generate quotes with over 250 carriers nationally. Independent agents simply import their prospective customer's information into the system, then SEMCAT automatically populates the information into the various carriers' quoting Web sites, thus eliminating redundant typing and saving agents up to 85 percent of their quoting time. More importantly, SEMCAT's quotes are proven to be 100 percent accurate and can be bound and issued immediately, unlike the quote estimates presented by many other comparative raters.

"The integration with Leads360 comes at a great time for our company, as we have been experiencing rapid agency adoption nationally, serving more than 4,000 agents in 43 states," said Colby Thomson, CEO of Allied Strategy. "SEMCAT now offers a complete home and auto quoting solution in states such as Florida, where there has been relatively weak comparative rating capabilities. We are pleased to offer our agents this one-two punch of a powerful lead management software solution coupled with our comprehensive quoting engine."
