Likelihood to Recommend

AMS360

If you use PL Rating, AMS360 is highly recommended due to their seamless integration. Also, if you are looking for a system to use on the cloud, it is best. But if you are an offline user, then maybe it's not for you.

BindHQ

BindHQ is great for the insurance industry. Scenarios in which it is used in accounting:
1. Looking up policies and seeing if they have been paid.
2. Sending out statements and allowing for review of those statements in an organized function. It provides Agency Bill/Direct Bill, Receivables/Payables, Open/Closed.
3. It allows for us to post/offset and make decisions based on producer, carriers, finance companies and agents directions.
Scenarios where it is less appropriate.
1. Outside of the insurance field. But just saying that as for right now. It does not mean that this kind of platform is not usable for other industries, but it would need to be modeled to fit each industry. It has all the core structures needed to help organize and run a business.

Pros

AMS360

  • Seamless integration with PL Rating to export customers for the re-marketing of policies.
  • Easy to navigate all sections of the customer information.
  • Very useful activity section which can be utilized for your agency's needs.

BindHQ

  • The option for us to CC the BindHQ email to file our correspondence with agents, carriers etc. is my first point for convenience. It is important for us to document just about every piece of every conversation we have and that option makes it seamless to operate efficiently and diligently.
  • It is easy to navigate. Simple as that. The layout is aesthetic and well spaced. The pertinent information pertaining to individual accounts is accessible and placed right across the top of the page.
  • The ability to move from the current account to an expired account or the other way toward the renewal is very helpful. Often we need to access the previous years information and being able to do that just with a simple drop down at the top of the page makes it quick.

Cons

AMS360

  • Lacks faster, intuitive, modern User Interface.
  • Lacks option to search for data in activities.
  • Does not create logs even for closed activities (suspense).

BindHQ

  • Rating option directly from account input - I would like to see this feature launched so that we could have a single entry feature that can obtain rates from multiple carriers
  • Bdx Reporting - This would help with binding authority business, especially when a monthly report must be sent to a carrier partner

BHQ is a user friendly, lightweight program that runs anywhere you have internet access! I use it at home, the office, or even at a nearby coffeeshop. It's hard to beat that kind of mobile work lifestyle particularly in the current world climate

It was hit-or-miss in the past but they seem to have taken steps to improve this. As of the past 6 months, they've been pretty quick to patch bugs and fix issues when we report them

Alternatives Considered

AMS360

I have used HawkSoft for over 8 years, so we know their system like the back of my hand. I have been using AMS360 for over 6 months, so it's really not fair to compare both at this level of knowledge of AMS360. It's still a learning curve with AMS360. So far when we compare both, HawkSoft is a much superior, faster and advanced system.

BindHQ

When comparing these to BindHQ, without a doubt, it is MUCH easier to navigate through AR and AP modules, applying cash, issuing checks, viewing policies, working remotely (no remote desktop), Gmail features with attaching emails to policies. But the main takeaway with what outshines than any other agency management system out there is the smooth transition from moving from AR to AP modules. You just can’t find that anywhere.

Return on Investment

AMS360

  • Positive impact would be that it has been a learning curve for us.
  • No negative impact, as we use this for our client who is an insurance agency. It does not affect our business.
Sagar Rathod | TrustRadius Reviewer

BindHQ

  • Positive - By streamlining our workflow processes it has allowed our production teams to focus more on production and generating more business and not on backend data entry and time wasting functions that we had with previous systems.
  • Positive - Production teams are now able to work together seamlessly on a single account regardless of employee location allowing for remote working to function without any time restraints
