Superior Access Launches Ground-Breaking Web Application for Independent Insurance Agents

October 5, 2007

Irvine, CA, Oct. 05, 2007 – Superior Access, the nation’s leading online insurance distributor, launched its most advanced web application to date: Superior Access 2.0. Crafted to provide independent insurance agents with fast and immediate access to a comprehensive range of insurance products from more than 65 carriers, Superior Access 2.0 is the most robust online tool available for the independent insurance agent.

More than an access portal to dozens of insurance carriers, the new Superior Access web tool brings time efficiencies, organization and structure to the independent agent. For example, the new “dashboard” feature gives users complete business transparency, allowing them to view all of their open and current activity on one easy-to-navigate page. Open quotes, bind requests, carrier queries and renewal alerts are all listed here, actionable with just a mouse click.

Additionally, the site also includes a Market Finder search feature, which enables agents to seek out new markets and identify available products within those markets. Users also can print out a variety of reports, from agency activity to active policies to policies by carriers. Independent agents also have access to comparative raters that can generate multiple quotes in one data entry session.

“Our new website is designed by insurance specialists to meet the unique needs of the independent insurance agent,” explains Superior Access CEO, Richard L. McCathron. “It is the product of hundreds of research and focus group hours.”

The focus group studies and survey results were compiled and culled to create an “ultimate wish list,” which was then taken to a panel of insurance industry specialists to determine which could be transformed into reality. The result is the most user-intuitive online interface ever created for the industry.

Superior Access 2.0 debuts under the vision of industry veteran Richard L. McCathron, who stepped in as CEO of Superior Access in June of this year. McCathron is a seasoned insurance professional with more than 14 years experience in multiple facets of the insurance industry, most recently as Vice President of Mercury General Corporation and Sr. Vice President of American Mercury Insurance Group.

McCathron, who created nationally standardized underwriting policies and procedures for Mercury, will lead Superior Access in its quest to empower independent agents nationwide. Superior Access 2.0 is just the first tool of many planned for the new independent insurance agent tool box. Superior Access will continue to enhance its online offerings, adding new user tools, enhanced agency management functionality and quoting capabilities in the upcoming year.

Superior Access is an online insurance distributor that provides independent insurance agents with fast and immediate access to an expansive range of insurance products from more than 65 carriers. Providing comprehensive and accurate quote-to-close capabilities for both Preferred Personal and Commercial Lines through an array of advanced online tools, Superior Access is the resource of choice for thousands of independent agents.
