A new thing we love about TAM is the opportunity section. You can create an opportunity for your producer when you get a prospect -and it really keeps track of the progress and also his book of business. This is one area that works well for my department. I love the search/filter as well. This program is SO user-friendly. It's a great tool all around no matter which department you are in.

Strategic Insurance Software
Not suited for a heavy commercial lines agency and/or one that has large, complex accounts. Too much policy detail isn't available within the system, so you end up having to either 1) go to carrier websites to pull copies of policies to determine accurate coverage, which is a hassle, especially if an active, endorsement active account or 2) go into documents to pull up copy(ies) of policy/endorsements to determine coverage or 3) keep a master copy of the policy, as issued (as a PDF) and note every endorsement change on that PDF, so you have one place to easily access how coverage stands at this point in time.

Pros
Applied Systems
  • TAM saves my work by letting me attach documents directly to policies or activities so I can have it for documentation or to review at a later time.
  • I also love the expiration report. It lets you know which accounts are coming up for renewal so you can be prepared to talk with your clients.
  • Creating activities is another another plus. It keeps my work organized and also is a great reminder when something is coming due or needs attention.

Cons
Applied Systems
  • After I attach something there is always a pop up telling me that "doc" has been attached. It pops up at the bottom of my screen and I constantly have to "x" out of it. It's not too big of a deal-just an inconvenience.

  • Prospect side of system lacks functionality of the client side.
  • No search function in notes/the main area to view all activity (not just documents, but any additional notes such as logs of discussions with producers/clients/prospects, logged phone calls, etc.). Should have same search functionality in Notes as in Documents.
  • "Quick Summary" profiles lack functionality of true client profile area.
  • No ability to turn off downloads..........wipes out too much underwriting detail. Too many lines of business don't download (not sure whether SIS Partner issue or carrier side issue). No Garage, Crime, Equipment Floaters, Builders Risk-Installation Floater, etc.
  • From a commercial standpoint, their policy detail really only addresses the five major lines of business, i.e., Property, GL, Auto, WC and Umbrella. Other ancillary lines, there is no where to input policy detail (other than in a General Remarks section), which doesn't show up on the "summary" detail.
  • Very apparent this system was developed for Personal Lines and not meant to handle large, sophisticated Commercial Lines accounts. When you deal with their Help Desk folks........they are totally insurance unknowledgeable, and often don't understand what is being asked of them.
  • Help Desk "pat" answer is "we'll add it to the enhancement list", but there are thing requested long ago and still not fixed/changed.

Alternatives Considered

I've used applied tam and EPIC. I believe EPIC is the NEW TAM? I love both products. I think Epic is a little bit more user-friendly and less clicking. TAM wanted to make an "activity" for everything-where Epic I feel like the choice is yours, which really frees up some clutter/space on my home screen. I love both products though.

Horrible! There are other systems that would have been better than this, even if management didn't want to spend the $$$ to upgrade to Epic...

  • Believe management choose the system strictly based on price and you get what you pay for.
  • That's what happens when you're owned by a bank that doesn't get/understand insurance.
