Chose AMS360
AMS360 is a solid platform to run an insurance agency. Their support during issues is stellar. Our issues came only after we said we needed to pivot a different direction, then everything went to pot.

Scalability, ease of use, ease of access, integrated services. This solution works for 2 man shops all the way up to 150+ with shared services, etc. Vertafore is working towards a unified look/feel, which will only solidify the need to work with any/all of their products.

EZLynx seems to be well suited for any size insurance agency. The capabilities seem to be endless with the only caveat being the integrated homeowner rating system. EZLynx fits all the categories that a management system should fit for any size insurance agency. About the only scenario I can think of that EZLynx would not be appropriate would be doing the financial books for an agency, but than again, what agency management does.

  • The integrated homeowner rater is weak and takes too much time to put in the info.
  • None of the raters that we use, QuoteRush and Applied Rater, offer exporting capability to EZLynx.
  • Can be a little costly if start adding all the capabilities.

This is by far the most robust agency management system I have used that works for all sizes of agencies. Others have better options here or there, but they are highly customized for a specific type of agency. AMS360 is a one size fits all type of solution, and it works well for us.

Before EZLynx Agency Management, I would go into each carrier site to do the quotes. EZLynx Agency Management saves time, which saves money, by quoting all carriers at once.

  • Unfortunately, I can't tell yet on this as I've only had EZLynx for 4 months now but from what I can see is that I will be saving tons of man hours on processing commissions.
  • I'm able to get more intuitive reporting which is a huge plus for marketing.
  • The inept integrated homeowner rater is just so bad we've given up on it which means I've had to spend extra dollars on a homeowner rater.
