Partner Spotlight: Nationwide Insurance

NPC-0586AO_PLstory_brochure_cover.jpgIIAN Industry Partners demonstrate a commitment to serving independent agents - and we love to shine a light on it!  

Our next Partner Spotlight features Nationwide Insurance, one of our Gold Partners.

Nationwide is one of the top 10 property-casualty insurance carriers in the country and has been committed to the independent agency channel for decades. Nationwide has had a strong presence in Nebraska for many years.

Jeff Rommel, Nationwide's Senior Vice President of P&C Sales and Distribution, said Nationwide brings value to independent agents through a breadth of products and solutions: personal lines, commercial lines, farm, E&S, life, financial services and more.

“Having that breadth of solutions that independent agents so desperately need is where Nationwide steps in and does an exceptional job," Rommel said.

Agents should turn to Nationwide when they are looking for a carrier that is trusted, financially sound, has a strong brand, and is focused on serving customers when they need us most. Rommel said agents can count on Nationwide as a consistent carrier that can be a background of what they are selling customers.

Nationwide knows that independent agents are looking to grow, and Rommel said Nationwide can help them do so with a number of solutions. Nationwide offers simple systems that allow for easy, up-front quoting and binding from an agent's standpoint, as well as plenty of self-service options for customers, which take a lot of work off the backs of agents.

When agents need or want to appear innovative and solution-oriented to their customers, Nationwide is the right partner for the job. Nationwide is a leading carrier when it comes to telematics, which provides customers the opportunity to get a product at a lower rate.

“The agent acts as a 'hero' in the form of helping customers think about safe driving. The agents are not just selling the product but caring for them," Rommel said. “That's a distinguishing factor comparing Nationwide to a direct carrier."

In addition, if independent agents are looking to streamline their business, Nationwide has industry-leading book consolidation capabilities to provide agents with efficient revenue.
