AgentSecure, a division of Fort Worth-based InsureZone, announced it is expanding its offerings through a virtual partnership with nearby Dallas-based BenefitMall.
AgentSecure, which provides independent agents with online access to big-brand property/casualty and life products through a single-entry, multiple-carrier interface (SEMCI), said beginning immediately its online application at www.agentsecure.com will also serve as a point of entry to BenefitMall. The latter provides broker services for small groups that include Web-assisted one-to-one sales solutions that provides products, tools and services to streamline the sale of employee benefits to small businesses. It has 20 field-sales offices across the nation, offers thousands of plans from more than 100 leading benefits providers, and pays the same commissions agents would earn if they had direct appointments with those carriers.
“The partnership with BenefitMall represents a milestone in our continuing effort to round out our offering with value-added products and services that smaller and rural agents need and want,” said Ed Gillman, founder and president of AgentSecure. “This will make it just that much easier for agents who’ve been focused exclusively on property and casualty lines to begin giving their clients a total solution.”
“This alliance moves us forward in our goal of becoming a complete benefits solution for multiple channels within the insurance industry and allowing for a greater reach and distribution of employee benefits to small businesses,” added Michael Gomes, executive vice president of Market Operations for BenefitMall.
BenefitMall complements AgentSecure’s core offering of small commercial products, including businessowners policy, workers’ compensation, commercial auto and umbrella liability, as well as directors and officers (D&O), errors and omissions (E&O), employee practices liability (EPLI), builders’ risk and bonds. More than 1,900 small-business classes are supported.
