What do you like best?

Applied Rater makes it easy to get a lot of different quotes without having to repeatedly enter rating and client information, pulling the information over from the client file application. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The product needs work. It is incomplete in its ability to pull information from the client file, and it'e limited in what products can be quoted. It pulls the auto information best, but even that is incomplete. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Start with the Auto application. Fill in all the info in Applied Epic, then open the rater in Real-Time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This program is a time saver, even though it has some needs for updating and improvement. It helps in my everyday quoting process;. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Applied takes so much manual work out of me getting my insurance quotes. I can enter client info in just a few screens and I can get the rates back from all companies we have contracts with instantly Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The one thing I dislike is the fact that there are an awful lot of endorsements and extra coverages I still have to go to the online rate manuals for each company for (ALWAYS have problems with things like overland water coverage) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If your brokerage is still archaic I can guarantee your producers are not making optimal use of their time nor are they producing as much as they could be Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

TIME! This is saving me so much time. I left the insurance industry for a few years and was beyond excited how far it has come. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This program is very simple to use. It will help to do your quotes. It will also help keep track of all your possible new clients. I do believe it with definitely give you return on your investment. What I really like is the link you can put on your website, facebook, or send in am email that will allow people to click on it and then fill in the information I need for a quote. Makes it so easy and simple. It helps me be quicker then my competition. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I did not like that it did not work with all my programs. I do wish it was more advanced. although it seems like they are always looking to improve and get better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Easy to use. I definitely know you will get back money on your investment by using this program. If I had the choice to purchase this again or to pass it up, I would buy it again in a heart beat. Customer service was easy to get a hold of and very helpful. I give this two thumbs up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

quicker to quote. Keep track of people who wanted a quote. Much easier to organize people who asked for a quote, who might become a customer if you keep up on them. Which in turn is a way to make up for your investment. Better then keeping paper files all over your office. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
