VAN WERT — The Central Insurance Companies was recently awarded the prestigious Quantum Award at the Network of Vertafore Users (NetVU) Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. The Quantum Award recognizes insurance carriers that have made a definitive commitment to NetVU member agencies to offer superior workflow productivity and profitability on both the regional and national level. Many carriers were nominated, but only three carriers were named finalists. From these finalists Central was selected the regional winner for their commitment to continual automation improvements.

From online training to a team of qualified service personnel ready to help in any way, Central provides training and support so agents can utilize Workflow Solutions to their highest potential. The company puts a high value on agency feedback, and has several advisory councils in place to generate and encourage agency input including the Inner Circle, CSR Advisory Council, Blue Streak Program, and Premier Agency Program, as well as Online Agency Forums.

“Central sets the bar with which we compare all of our other carriers,” says Matt Frierson of Central agency partner Pierson & Fendley Insurance in Paris, Texas. “I can’t find anyone to compare with Central in terms of ease of doing business and the support they provide. And that doesn’t even take into account the ease with which customers can communicate with Central! It is very obvious that technology is incredibly important to Central Mutual, and as an agency doing business with them each day it shows!”

Central Insurance has invested in and adopted a full range of real time technology and participates in NetVU, ACORD User Groups Information Exchange, and Agents Council for Technology. Central, one of the founding partners for Project CAP, is a Salutatorian Partner for the IIABA’s project InVEST, and has been a Trusted Choice® company partner since 2003.
