New Agency Generation: What to Look for in Agency Software
Getting to know Agencies vs Agents
An agent is a person that represents the insurance company (principal) however they must follow all the requirements stated within the agreement. Even though their roles are limited, agents have the authority to solicit insurance business, collect premiums, as well as issue a cover note on behalf of the insurers. To be an agent, you have to understand the pros and cons. There are two types of agents; captive agents which represent only one principal whereas independent agents can represent two principals.
In any insurance company, agency distribution will handle everything related to agency management which includes appointing an agent or eliminating the agent. This includes the right to control everything both internal and external process.
The Internal Issues
Agent vs Principal

This is because an agent is an intermediary, therefore, they build the relationship with the clients. Due to conflict, agents tend to acts on their own without referring to their principals.
Clients’ Claim Experience
“Clients wants to do a claim but some of them haven’t received the money” are the concerns that arise by the agents to the agency. If you’re an agent, you should have known better that you are supposed to assist your clients before, during, and after the claim process.
