If you’ve been wondering when the mobile revolution will truly take hold in the life insurance business, get ready: it’s happening this very moment.
This may seem like hyperbole since, after all, we’ve had laptops for decades and smartphones have become increasingly prominent in our business lives. But it is the latest technology development — the tablet — that is as big and important as the futurists claim. This portable device is accelerating the mobile revolution. For those life agents who adopt and master it now, tablet use can provide a competitive advantage and a means to increase client satisfaction and sales in the near term.

New mobile tools, particularly tablets, give you ready access to two types of information.
Faster Sale Closings
Indeed, the implementation of tablet or other mobile technology in your agency can accelerate the sales process — without rushing it and with an improved client experience. The reason for this is the speed and facility with which you can create and modify illustrations for clients and formalize quotes. With mobile devices, it takes just minutes to conduct these two crucial processes, and importantly, they can be accomplished in one meeting.
