Evidence shows that approval and placement rates are higher with accelerated underwriting (AU). On average, AU cuts the processing time by three weeks. It’s faster and more convenient for you and your client because underwriting is completed based on data, instead of on labs and medical records. And it means less time for clients to change their minds and decline coverage.
But with traditional quoting software, it can be hard to determine which carrier's accelerated underwriting is best for your client, or if they will qualify. With Ash Term Express, we’ve filtered through all carriers’ constantly changing AU programs to bring you the best fluidless underwriting programs. The platform intuitively understands which carrier’s AU process is best for your client, providing an AU score for each program. The AU score is based on AU policy limits, probability of approval as applied for, and average time to place an AU policy.
The Ash Term Express platform is built on data for clients just like yours. You can be sure the platform quickly analyzes the client’s information and lets you see which accelerated underwriting program is best, if applicable. And, it tailors necessary information based on client responses and carrier selection, so no time is wasted answering unnecessary questions. It also guides you to the most accurate health class, so you get the quote right the first time.
Information entered into the Ash Quoter flows straight into the Ash Express Application, so you save time and don't have to enter information twice.
