Testimonials

We had a big women’s market initiative directed by senior management. We needed information on how we compared to our peers in terms of policy sales to women. We had a very hard time finding this information, even internally. We also wanted to figure out how many female agents we had under contract. Normally, it would have taken several hours just to find the right person to ask for our internal data, if it was available at all. Using LifeCompass, we were able to pull together women’s market information for our companies and other companies in 30 to 40 minutes, which otherwise would have taken weeks to collect.

Our company uses LifeCompass in annual profit and growth planning. It helps us determine product mix plans for the following year, and we use the average premium per policy data at the state level to help identify states we need to better target.
