VUE CompensationPoint 5.0 and VUE Lead Management Generate Dramatic Results for United Insurance Group
90-Day Implementation of End-to-End Commissions and Incentive Compensation Management Solution Yields Rapid ROI
Coconut Creek, Florida, 9/5/2006 — Computer Solutions and Software International, Inc. (CSSI), today announced the successful implementation of VUE CompensationPoint 5.0 and VUE Lead Management by United Insurance Group Agency Incorporated (UIG). VUE Software began generating a return on investment (ROI) for UIG after less than 12 months. VUE CompensationPoint 5.0 replaced UIG’s homegrown system, immediately and dramatically improving UIG’s ability to pay with accuracy and efficiency while eliminating the need for manual reconciliations and extensive staff support.
“The implementation speed was incredible,” said William J. Ryan, director of Information Technology for UIG. “We were up and running in less than 90 days from signing, which is testament to the VUE Software team’s knowledge of the insurance industry and willingness to work alongside us to meet a very tight timetable and budget.”
A comprehensive solution for automating the calculation and payment of producer incentives, bonuses and commissions, VUE CompensationPoint 5.0 enabled UIG to streamline administrative processes, improve efficiencies through automation and error reduction, implement online reporting to its distributed agent base, boost agent morale and capitalize on the ability to incentivize agents. UIG later added VUE Lead Management to streamline lead distribution and increase producer effectiveness.
Prior to implementing VUE Software, UIG had exceeded the capabilities of its homegrown system, which had involved spreadsheets and manual calculations. “We chose VUE Software because it is specifically designed to be able to adapt to our way of doing business, rather than forcing us to change our business to fit its model,” Ryan said. “CSSI’s responsiveness in addressing our requirements was also a critical factor.”
VUE Software’s start-to-finish processing within a single, automated system empowers UIG while freeing support staff to be more productive in critical areas. Regardless of the number of products, agents and carriers, the solution consolidates all sales information so there is one commission check and a single commission statement readily understood by all UIG agents from within VUE Online.
“VUE Software is earning a reputation as a superior solution for automating the insurance administration process,” stated Stephen Bruno, president and CEO of CSSI. “We are excited to count UIG as one of our customers.”
UIG anticipates continued results from its VUE Software system. VUE Lead Management acts as a centralized tool for territory definition, rapid lead assignments and lead-scrubbing. VUE Online enables UIG to leverage the Internet to communicate with agents regarding commissions, incentive compensation and production indicators, further increasing the organization’s efficiency and dramatically improving producer satisfaction.
Since UIG was founded in 1980, the company has experienced tremendous sales growth. Starting with only a handful of agents in one state the company has grown to over 15,000 contracted career and independent agents. Hard work, dedication and a focus on the most exciting market segment in the insurance industry – the Senior Age Market, has underpinned the company’s success. UIG specializes in insurance products that serve this market best, such as Long Term Care Insurance, Home Health Care, Medicare Supplement, Life and Annuities.
