“EMPLOYERS is a leader in the workers’ compensation market and we are very pleased to have them join the IBQ platform,” comments Bruce Hopkins, Co-founder of IBQ Systems. “EMPLOYERS is a big advocate for streamlining the workflow for independent agents.

Increased Efficiency for Agents

By getting real-time quotes from EMPLOYERS and other carriers in a single multi-carrier rating environment, independent agents can save time and increase efficiency, according to a vendor statement. IBQ says that it eliminates the need to visit multiple proprietary websites and enter the same data repeatedly.

“We used to quote individually for each company, which is very time-consuming,” comments Marc Berg, Agent/Broker, Pinkham Agency. “IBQ saves us a ton of time by having everything centralized and integrated with our management system,” he says. “We have basically saved two-thirds of the time. Not to mention, IBQ’s pricing is very competitive. We’ve definitely gotten our money’s worth.”
