AMS and ChannelPoint–Integrated Rating is

AMS Services Inc. and ChannelPoint’s Solution Rating Group (formerly InsurQuote/IAS) announce that 2-way integration between AfW/AfW Online version 4.5 and ChannelPoint’s windows desktop AgencySuite products is now available.

The agreement was first announced and a prototype of the product was demonstrated at the AMS National Users’ Group Conference last April. After a successful pilot period, the product is ready to be delivered to agents. The first offering integrates Auto and Home with the AfW management system and its ASP-hosted complement, AfW Online. Integration with other AMS management systems and other lines of business is also planned. ChannelPoint rating customers that use AMS management systems will benefit tremendously from this integration and AMS management system customers will have more choices for their agencies’ rating solutions.
