IIAT’s InfoCentral Now Free to Members

September 30, 2004

The Independent Insurance Agents of Texas (IIAT) reported that InfoCentral, its premium Web reference library service, becomes absolutely free for all members beginning Oct.1. The service was launched in 2001.

“The board of directors approved making InfoCentral a free service after a careful evaluation of IIAT services,” said Bill Harrison, IIAT president. “Because of its demonstrated benefit, the board believes all members should have free access.”

There are more than 2,500 pages of valuable information found on InfoCentral.

“Access is easier than ever,” said David VanDelinder, IIAT executive director. “Simply click on the InfoCentral red disk from any page. You don’t need a subscription and you don’t need a separate InfoCentral logon if you’ve already registered for the members-only Web site.”

Subscriptions will still be necessary for non-members.

InfoCentral provides clear, current information on a wide range of insurance matters. It includes 10 commercial and personal lines policy reviews with extensive explanations of actual policy language in an easy-to-use format, more than 285 articles with answers to commonly asked coverage and claims questions, the Texas Insurance Agents Handbook Online with 11 sections of how-to advice for operating a successful agency and a comprehensive E&O Loss Control library featuring 16 sections of practical, expert E&O loss control advice. Plus you’ll find extensive links to industry and regulatory information.

Simply enter two or three words to search and InfoCentral will present the documents required. (It’s quick and easy to copy and paste the information into an e-mail or a fax.)

“Increasingly, top agents are finding InfoCentral an important ally in winning customers through providing current and accurate information when immediate, world-class service is the difference between sale and no sale. Again and again, agents and customer service professionals who subscribe report they use this online reference library to answer stubborn questions from customers when customers need answers,” Harrison said.
