Maybe you don’t need to. But beyond today, are you prepared for the future? Are you staying ahead of your competitors? Is your expense ratio rising? Can you respond to market opportunities and competitive threats efficiently and cost-effectively? If so, and if your answer will be the same a year from now, you might be okay.
My current vendor has to perform all of my maintenance work and product configurations. It’s costly and time-consuming. What makes the Beyontec Suite different, and why should I expect a different experience?
The difference is in the flexible configurability of the Suite. We’ll train and equip you to make the changes you need — to rates, algorithms, forms, print packages, reports, screen presentations and contents, adding or amending underwriting questions, input fields, and more — using the configuration tools in the Suite. We’re always there to help in any way, but our goal is to make you as independent as possible. Request a demo today to see what we mean.
You can mitigate your risks in a soft market by reducing your expenses. Our underwriting rules limit the number of touches required on new business, allowing you to do more with fewer people. Giving agents and policyholders self-service access through portals is another way of reducing costs. Keeping your rates current and implementing new rates as soon as they’re approved helps control risk and cost, too. With the Beyontec Suite, you can do all those things yourself, in minutes.
You don’t need any equipment other than PCs with browsers. Since the software is delivered from the cloud, you don’t need to invest in hardware or the personnel to keep it running.
We want to sell direct to consumers, but our current software doesn’t let us to do so effectively. Can the Beyontec Suite help?
The Beyontec Suite builds in a D2C Portal as part of the base system. It has all the functionality and security you need to offer your products direct to consumers.
Market conditions are forcing us to look at offering new products in new states. Is the Beyontec Suite limited in those capacities?
In a word, no. We pre-developed most of the products you might want to offer. The rest you can configure. And there are no geographical limitations at all. We considered coverages and state-specific idiosyncrasies as we built the Suite. It can be configured for almost any product, including specialty lines.
No, you can run it in-house if you like. But we offer it from the cloud. And we’re willing to work with most third-party hosting services (as long as they meet security standards). We’ll help you choose the best option for your specific situation.
Configurable refers to work that can be done or changes that can be made to the software by you with the tools and training we provide. The code doesn’t need to be touched. You can make the changes yourself, at your speed, without additional cost.
While the benefits of self-sufficiency are obvious, how do we get to the point where we’re comfortable with the system? What if we have don’t have the time, appetite, or personnel to be totally independent?
Our goal is to make you as independent as you want to be. We’ll never leave you alone. But we’ll never do work you’d rather do yourself. We’ll give you customized user manuals, specific to your company and your product lines. We’ll take you through product set-up and train you to use the configuration tools that come with the system. If you don’t want to do any of that, we’ll do perform the maintenance and make the changes you request on a T&M basis. If you’re working independently and reach a point at which demands are too great or there’s something you’d rather not do, we’ll provide the resources you need to do what needs to be done. Since you control the assistance you need, you also control your costs.
We collected a good deal of information about your business practices and processes to prepare a custom demo for you. Now we need the details so we can deliver a product that looks like you want it to, with your rates, rules and forms, and workflows. We’ll send a team of people to your location for a period of time (varies on the number of products, states, complexity) to conduct a Business Process Study and to become a partner in the successful implementation of the Suite.
No. We’ll interface with any of your existing software. We want you to make the best decision for your business. We’ll need to understand the product with which we’re interfacing. So, we’ll need staff support or solid documentation and a data map to ensure we can make the interface fully functional.
There are buttons on this site that say Request a Demo. Clicking the buttons will trigger an email request, and you’ll be contacted shortly thereafter. We like to have two hours for an initial demo, but we’ll work within the availability of your time.
