InsurTech Pioneers, ePayPolicy & Veruna, Ink Integration

AUSTIN, TX– June 16, 2020 –  ePayPolicy and Veruna have entered into a vendor-partner agreement to add the digital payment processing capabilities of ePayPolicy to the Veruna AMR, the company’s open-platform agency management system (AMS).

Both companies are InsurTech pioneers, redefining how independent insurance agencies conduct business through the innovative development and application of technology, and are committed to greater agency control and paperless operation.

ePayPolicy is on a mission to replace paper checks with convenient, simple, online payments via credit card or ACH. While digital payments are ubiquitous across the spectrum of consumer and business transactions, insurance has traditionally been slow to offer alternatives to checks — even though most are using an AMS to automate other aspects of the business. ePayPolicy gives policyholders the convenience of digital payment options while handling the specific accounting, compliance, and reporting requirements of independent agents and brokers.

“To reach today’s independent agents, it’s essential that we integrate with the agency management systems that are continuing to develop agency first solutions,” said Milan Malkani, ePayPolicy co-founder. “Veruna offers an exciting, innovative AMS that’s feature-rich. We’re honored to be named as their integration partner for payment processing.”

“Our goal is to help agencies outperform the past,” said Jennifer Carroll, CEO of Veruna. “We are in tune with their evolving needs in an ever-changing world, and the Veruna AMR offers agencies a robust, yet nimble, suite of management functions. Digital payment processing is a welcome and timely addition, and ePayPolicy is the perfect partner for us.”

The Veruna platform revolutionizes agency operations and makes higher levels of productivity possible with the ability to make more rapid, informed decisions utilizing real-time data, robust analytics, and automated workflows. By coupling exceptional technology with industry expertise, Veruna delivers an AMS designed to meet the needs of modern insurance agencies by enhancing mobility, flexibility, customization, and integration capabilities.

“ePayPolicy is redefining insurance payments, and Veruna is redefining agency management,” said Carroll. “I see exciting implications for forward-thinking agencies — and our clients.”

The Indie Agents Guide to The Coronavirus Relief Options

New Options Available For Your Insurance Agency  

Most insurance agents and agencies could consider themselves small businesses. Thanks to the recent CARES act, signed into law by the President on Friday, March 27th, there are four new funding options available to small businesses. These are temporary but necessary programs established to support businesses affected by Coronavirus. We’ve gathered a bit of helpful information for your agency to consider. 

So, What’s the Government Doing Exactly?

Here it is in a nutshell. They are offering:
1. A Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) – expanding one of their traditional loan programs and forgiving businesses for retaining employees
2. Economic Injury Disaster Loans – providing up to $10,000 advance loan if your business is facing temporary difficulties
3. SBA Express Bridge Loans – allowing businesses to get a quick $25,000 if they have a current SBA Express Lender relationship
4. Debt Relief – affording financial reprieve to small businesses


Here it is, in less of a nutshell.

Where to Start

When our friends at Broker Buddha reached out to let us know they developed a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) resource, we were excited to share it with you! Not only because it’s backed by a fellow InsurTech leader, but because this is one of the primary loans independent agencies should apply for. It benefits small businesses who have focused on keeping their employees on payroll – we love that. 
When it comes to the PPP, the 31 pages of guidelines are just the start. Our best find for an overview is on Marketplace, where they dive into some major details like who can apply, where to apply, and some basic terms of the loan. They also emphasize that you should apply ASAP since there is a funding cap.
The application can be submitted “to any SBA lender or any federally insured depository institution, federally insured credit union, and Farm Credit System institution that is participating,” according to Janet Nguyen with Marketplace. But those institutions haven’t made it easy.

I’ve Got Friends in “Loan” Places

Thankfully, Broker Buddha did make it easy. They designed an entire PPP Loan Smart Form application to make the process “easier and far less time-consuming for businesses to complete.” 
Their resource makes it simple to apply for this loan, and includes instructions throughout the process – something the original PDF application did not provide. They also offer this service free to all agencies, even those not using the Broker Buddha platform.
We highly recommend your agency apply for a PPP Loan if you have prioritized keeping your team employed. Using the free access Smart Form to apply will simply make that experience better!

West Virginia Association Chooses ePayPolicy As Digital Payment Processor of Choice for its Members

AUSTIN, Texas, January 22, 2020 – ePayPolicy is proud to announce its latest state insurance association endorsement. Independent Insurance Agents of West Virginia (IIAWV)  recently named ePayPolicy as the recommended payment processing provider for its member agencies.

When we stop to think about the degree of change that engulfs and propels us, it is just short of unbelievable.’ They also recognized that ‘computerized operations have evolved from a novelty to a necessity.’ Two decades later, InsurTech continues to drive our industry forward. We’re delighted to extend ePayPolicy’s solutions to IIAWV members and to their clients.” About IIAWV With roots dating back to 1899, the Independent Insurance Agents of West Virginia (IIAWV) is the state’s oldest and largest insurance trade organization.

The Real Value Of An Instagram Like For Your Agency

If No One Can See My Likes… Does My Content Really Count?

Last week Instagram announced that they would be getting rid of the “likes” feature on the app for users in the U.S, in other words no one will be able to see how many likes your posts get. However, you will still be able to view the like count within your own account. This may not come as a huge surprise since Instagram started testing out this change back in July in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Italy, Japan and New Zealand. This update will begin as a test to some users in the U.S this week before the change becomes more permanent. 
So what’s the deal, Instagram? What’s so wrong with those little hearts? Instagram CEO, Adam Mosseri said the reason behind this big change is, “about creating a less pressurized environment where people feel comfortable expressing themselves.” This update will serve as a way for users to concentrate on the posts and interacting with the app rather than just focusing on the amount of “likes” their post may garner. 
It seems Instagram’s reasoning behind this change is pretty valid and may prove to be beneficial to its users, but what will this mean for your marketing efforts for your insurance agency? Well, that depends on your social strategy.  Many companies and brands who want to work with influencers use the number of likes from posts to determine if they have enough “influence” with their audience. The update to remove likes will now require more work from the company or brand’s side to look further into whether an influencer is worth the investment. However, like most insurance agencies if you don’t rely on influencers and are providing great content get ready to roll up your sleeves.

It’s Time To Get To Work!

If you want your content to stay in your followers’ feed, this update will challenge your content strategy (and all Instagram content producers for that matter) to create quality content that does not rely on the “group influence effect” to receive engagement. Your content will need to capture and keep your followers’ attention and focus on the point you’re trying to convey.
If you’ve been waiting to up your Instagram game and really display your creativity, now is a perfect time! No more “like” comparison, it will be a level playing field for everyone on Instagram.

Finding The Perfect Payment Processor For Your Agency

“It’s not us, it’s you.” Several insurance agents that use large payment processors (operate in multiple verticals) have reported being kicked off their payment processor, with no other explanation than “our product is not a good fit for your industry.” Well, their loss is potentially your gain. We can’t tell you exactly why these companies are rejecting business from the insurance industry. But we have some educated guesses. Even better, we have a solution! First and foremost, the insurance industry is highly regulated and involves a lot of tracking funds for compliance purposes. Some payment processors are designed for straight sales transactions. They simply can’t handle the additional levels of accounting and code compliance the insurance industry demands, in other words, they don’t speak insurance. “Not a good fit” is their way of admitting they’re not set up for a complex, regulation-driven industry like insurance. Here are some likely reasons why they might be rejecting business from insurance agencies:

Insurance Code Mandates and Trust Account Management

Most vendors who use a large multi-vertical payment processor have a simple business model: receive payment in exchange for goods or services provided. It’s straightforward. No fancy accounting required. Think coffee shops, digital storefronts, hotdog guy at the block party. But not the insurance industry. As you know, premium payments in some states are subject to insurance code regulations. When you receive premiums you are operating in a “fiduciary” capacity. You are not the “owner” of the premiums paid but are acting as a fiduciary of those funds.  As such, you must keep premiums in separate trust accounts that are segregated from the agency’s business operating funds. This is to protect premium funds from agency creditors. And you can’t take them out of the trust account without proper documentation of the commission earned and an audit trail, either. Truth be told, general payment processors are not set up for this level of sophistication. Volume, yes. Sophisticated accounting, no. Trust account (TA) management is a huge responsibility with potentially heavy consequences. You need a payment processor that understands the “ins and outs” — which, for insurance agents, involves more than simply depositing money from the client into your agency account, or even passing it directly through to the carrier! Terms like net funding and premium funds should sound familiar. 

State Compliance and Regulations 

Each state has its own set of regulations for selling insurance. The requirements in Ohio may be different from those in New York, California or Florida. That’s one reason why the trusted choice / BIG I associations are so valuable. They keep you on track to maintain compliance with any and all state-specific mandates. Needless to say, the big global payment processing companies are not operating at this micro (state regulations) level.  But you are. And so are we at ePayPolicy. We maintain close relationships with the Big I / Trusted Choice state insurance associations nationwide and are in the process of getting all 50 states endorsements. Their stamp of approval is their way of saying, “This vendor gets it. We trust them. You should, too.”

An insurance Industry-Specific Solution

I’ve kind of hinted at the solution in the “issues/problems with general payment processors” sections above. Yes.  I am talking about ePayPolicy — the insurance payment processing platform built specifically for independent insurance agents. We are not a general-purpose payment processor. We are a payment processor that was built by insurance professionals for insurance. We work exclusively with and for the insurance industry. By focusing on your business needs, as well as the highly regulated nature of insurance, we have created an ecosystem that streamlines your operations while ensuring compliance across the board. Check out ePayPolicy. We make collecting credit card and ACH payments as easy as possible and to get started takes only 5 minutes.
