ProspX Delivers Real-Time Collaboration and Networking Platform to Canadian Brokerage Firm Excel Insurance and Risk Management

Technology Helps Streamline Communication with Agency’s Global Broker and Carrier Partners

AUSTIN, TX – May 18, 2011 – ProspX, Inc., developer of the first on-demand search and sales collaboration solution for the commercial insurance industry, today announced that Excel Insurance and Risk Management, Inc., has implemented ProspX. The platform enables their sales organization to connect and collaborate internally within their global partner network and externally across the insurance carrier landscape.

“ProspX makes it easier for our producers and marketers to search, find, and leverage the best information and expertise available for our clients,” said Douglas Morrow, managing director for Excel. “The ability to connect automatically to our partner network, share expert knowledge, and track and measure results, gives a big boost to our sales and submission process.”

Excel also benefits from the collaboration platform’s latest product feature, InsiderConnect™, an electronic marketing solution that automatically matches critical industry news and carrier information with relevant business opportunities in a producer’s pipeline. The platform aggregates and delivers the content via a custom generated e-newsletter while maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of the producer’s sales pipeline.

“With InsiderConnect, ProspX allows us to overcome email overload by delivering only what is important us, right when we need it,” said Morrow. “The opportunity specific information that our producer’s receive in their email inbox can then be easily shared with our prospects and clients, which is vital to helping our producers continue to build credibility and strengthen their relationships.”

“We are excited to add a leading Canadian firm to our growing global customer base,” said Todd Young, president and CEO of ProspX. “This further reinforces our on-going commitment to helping our agents, broker, and carrier customers harness the best information and resources available for every new and renewal business opportunity in their sales pipeline.”
