Main Street America Launches Online Commercial Quoting Tool

Main Street America Group, the Keene, N.H.-based parent of National Grange Mutual Insurance and Old Dominion Insurance, announced the launch of a new online quoting tool, Quick Quote, for commercial insurance products on its Web site,

The function allows Main Street America Group agents to offer quotes for omnibus, contractors and inland marine business. Users complete the information requested in the application and hit the “rate” button. The information is sent to Main Street America Group, rated and returned to the agency in a matter of seconds. Quotes are archived for retrieval and review, modification or issuance. Agents can create several different versions of a quote without the need to create a new quote every time. A proposal also can be printed directly to the agent’s desktop.

The rollout of commercial lines Quick Quote begins first in New England and over the next few months throughout Main Street America Group’s marketing territory, with Florida later in 2003.

Quick Quote also will be available in the first half of 2003 via IVANS Transformation Station, the industry’s single entry, multiple-company interface (SEMCI) solution. Transformation Station allows agents to utilize their agency management systems and ACORD applications for new business and policy inquiry workflow with carriers without having to rekey data at multiple carrier websites.
