Travelers P&C and AMS Services to Offer Real-time SEMCI Quoting

December 13, 2002

Travelers Property Casualty announced it will offer real-time quoting capabilities for small commercial insurance to independent agents with AMS Services Inc.

This new capability allows agencies to obtain quotes for business owners policies from Travelers directly through their AMS management system, rather than being transferred to a proprietary site via a bridge transaction or logging into a separate company Web site.

“This new capability offers AMS agents real-time quoting capability that fits within their existing workflow,” said David Findley, senior vice president of Operations for Travelers Commercial and Personal Lines. “Agency staff can begin using this new technology with minimal training, rather than the more extensive training that might be required to learn a carrier’s proprietary system.”

Travelers is the first carrier to use IVANS WebSEMCI(TM) product in conjunction with AMS platforms through IVANS Transformation Station(TM). WebSEMCI is the data collection tool designed to edit and capture company data in an agency management system. The edited data is sent to Travelers in real-time based on the ACORD XML standard using IVANS Transformation Station, a managed data exchange for real-time transactions.

The SEMCI capability is currently in a nationwide pilot for agents using AMS’ AfW agency management system with WebSEMCI. It will be rolled out more broadly in the coming months.
