Novidea: Cloud Technology That Boosts Sales, Productivity & Profitability for Insurance Brokers & Agents
Roi Agababa, CEOInsurance distribution channels are witnessing a tremendous increase in competitionas well as shrinking commissions. Brokers and Agents are losing valuable business data that is buried inside antiquated systems while fragmented technology stacks are limiting their growth. This has led brokers to look for an innovation that will help them generate new business, grow their current book of business and give them real-time insight on the KPIs of their organization.
Novidea developed a cloud based end-to-end solution to help brokers become more customer centric. Novidea’s technology DNA is focused on insurance brokers growing policy sales, renewals, profitability and productivity. Leading insurance brokers are now using this innovative platform in over ten countries. “Offering global best practices in distribution, we are able to show our brokers a clear ROI from our technology. Novidea provides a level of automation, visibility, and actionable BI that the insurance distribution channel never had before,” exclaims Roi Agababa, CEO, Novidea.
Historically, brokers used systems that gave them snapshots of the business. This data was difficult to get, incomplete and outdated. “One of our clients referred to it as driving a car with only a rear-view mirror. No windshield and no dashboard to help you navigate. With Novidea, management always know where the business is headed and can make educated decisions, with our real-time visibility. In today’s marketplace, data is king and data driven business stay ahead of the curve,” says Agababa.
With this in mind, Novidea developed a robust platform for regional and global brokers.
Providing HQ and management with real-time data and accurate analytics across product, team, offices and countries. Novidea developed a profiled-based and automated push reporting that can aggregate data from multiple sources into a true 360o view. “In the past, management at the brokerage did not trust the data and did not have the needed visibility. With Novidea’s drill down BI, management can now easily get their arms around the business. Global brokers can now benefit from having a common language across the organization. Novidea gives the broker the ability to operate locally and report globally to HQ,” delineates Agababa.
