Rapid growth driven by demand for a single application to standardize business operations and to provide a single view into a book of business
University Park, Ill. (July 10, 2015) – Applied Systems has announced that its Applied Epic software user base has increased by approximately 300 percent year-over-year in the Canadian marketplace. Leading brokers such as Orr Insurance, Miller Insurance Brokers, Brokers Trust Insurance Group, Inc. and First West Credit Union made the decision to convert from other brokerage management systems to benefit from the standardized business operations and scalability delivered by Applied Epic. In addition, as demand continues to increase for online access, the cloud version of Applied Epic, Applied EpicOnline, has been selected by 90% of new Applied Epic brokerages.
“Our growth strategy required that our offices consolidate onto a single system that could unify the operations and standardize data and workflows across all of our offices,” said Rick Orr, owner and account executive, Orr Insurance & Investment. “We chose Applied EpicOnline as the next step in our transformation initiative, and we have already begun to recognize the benefits of having a single source for all client information, delivering improved operational efficiencies and enabling us to better serve our clients.”
