Overview

Born from an insurance agency for insurance agencies, Edge has pocketed over a decade of Insurance experience. We exclusively focus on insurance agencies and firms. Our service is centered around providing agencies with a fully trained, remote employee, to boost your agency needs.

We are a market leader in bringing you big company resources at a fraction of the cost, helping you enrich customer relationships. We deeply understand the challenges modern insurance agencies face.

When you become a partner with Edge – we have a thorough onboarding and setup process to get your new Ambassador integrated into your agency quickly and smoothly.

Scenario

Provence’s top challenge was their excessive workload which was causing a bottleneck in their operations. The agency was keen to hire more help but simply did not have the time or resources required to onboard and train new employees – a common loop that many agencies fall into.

Provence was determined to become better at retaining clients and they knew that they would need the support of new staff. Acquiring support and growing their team with highly trained professionals would significantly help with the agency’s operations. Assistance with tasks such as updating management system files, claims followup, customer service, underwriter followups, or any other clerical needs would not only help Provence save on valuable time and resources – but it would also help boost the agency’s overall productivity and client relations.


Here’s what we learned about Provence Inc:

  • The Team needed both additional back-office and customer-facing support to spread the agency workload
  • They adapted well to partnering with Edge Ambassadors
  • They wanted to proactively contact clients to decrease stress in the office and build stronger customer relationships
  • Onboarding a trained employee would take significantly less time
  • Having Ambassadors work within the agency’s processes and management system helped with seamless integration
Location: California, Nevada
Established: 1998
Biggest Challenge: With a large amount of workload and processes, Provence Inc. knew they need immediate support at a low cost to foster customer satisfaction and client retention

Plan

We immediately began training our Ambassadors on client-facing skills, policy management, and claims support unique to Provence Inc. This included videos, workbooks, presentations, mock scenarios, and many other training tools all paid for by Edge. Acquiring a fully trained Ambassador specific to Provence allowed for a smooth transition into the agency’s standard of operations.

At a fraction of the cost Provence would pay for and train a new employee, Edge onboarded an insurance professional ready to take on the agency’s needs in a short amount of time.

Edge Services & Solutions Ambassador partners with Provence Inc. and begins to:

  • Provide consumer facing customer service via phone, email and text

  • Be the first point of contact for phone calls
  • Adopt a client-facing role
  • Updating client files
  • Process quotes
  • Prepare Acord forms
  • Follow up on claims

Immediately after onboarding, the team became excited to focus on sales and work with our Ambassadors to take time off of their workload. When challenges arose, Edge Ambassadors were there to help work them out with the team at every step of the way!
