New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/08/2010 -- Strategic Insurance Agency Alliance (SIAA) has selected the SeaPass Hub, a real-time comparative commercial lines quoting service, as a strong option for their members.
After a careful and thorough review of all available solutions in the marketplace, SIAA has found that the SeaPass Hub provides the carrier access, reliability, ease of use and speed to enable the most efficient small business operations possible today.
Connie Bedaw at SIAA, said, “Over the past few years, SAN staff has looked at 3 different commercial lines comparative rating systems. … for some reason a good commercial lines rating system is hard to find. Recently, we completed a third-round look at the SeaPass system. They were very responsive in making tweaks to the system. We encourage our members to try this system. In this economic climate, agencies need to run as efficiently as possible. The ability to obtain multiple company quotes from one entry goes a long way towards improving efficiencies.”
Eric Gewirtzman, CEO of SeaPass, said, “We have great respect for SIAA and the business that they have built.
