ORANGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Word & Brown General Agency announced today it has received an overwhelming, enthusiastic response from brokers using its WBQuote Application Program Interface (API) integration with the EaseCentral online enrollment (OLE) platform. The updated technology enables brokers to easily quote plans at www.wordandbrown.com and quickly move their groups into online enrollment with a click of a button.
The API integration decreases the steps involved in traditionally setting up an online enrollment by as much as 90%. Information from WBQuote automatically initiates and populates the EaseCentral OLE, eliminating the need for brokers to re-enter group census and health benefit information.
“We are very excited about how technology has helped streamline the enrollment process,” said Jessica Word, president of the Word & Brown General Agency. “We integrated with CaliforniaChoice earlier in the year and hope to connect platforms with many of our other carrier partners very soon.”
“At EaseCentral, we are focused on offering the industry’s best technology to brokers,” said David Reid, CEO and co-founder of EaseCentral. “With this new integration, brokers who use our platform will have access to Word & Brown’s supreme solutions for quoting, alongside the latest enrollment technology needed for brokers to stay on the cutting edge in the age of the ‘SaaS broker.’ Word & Brown has always been, and continues to be, a leader in this industry by enabling brokers to better provide cost saving and efficient options for businesses."
OLE makes benefits administration easier and faster for businesses, employees, and the brokers serving them by automating data collection and management from start to finish. It provides employers and employees with online access to rates, plans and benefits while also eliminating paperwork leading to potential faster underwriting approvals.
