New Nationwide agent rating platform feature delivering faster sales


Quoting auto and home insurance in as little as two minutes. That Nationwide Express capability made the platform extremely attractive to agents when it first launched in 2019. The newest version of Nationwide Express contains a feature that will make it even easier for agents to work with Nationwide.

The carrier announced that Nationwide Express is now compatible with comparative raters EZLynx and PL Rating, allowing an agent who chooses Nationwide from their rater to now easily bridge to Nationwide Express to close the sale faster.

“Nationwide Express will save agents a ton of time and make the quoting and binding process much simpler,” said Sam Nudelman, Firefly Agency. “I appreciate the way you are asking for our feedback on Nationwide Express. I don’t think there are many other carriers that are going as in-depth in asking for agent feedback on these types of things as Nationwide is right now, and that speaks volumes.”

“This capability is a big deal for our agents to close more sales,” said Jeff Rommel, Nationwide’s SVP Sales & Distribution. “The comparative rater integration with Nationwide Express makes it incredibly easy for agents and provides a fast experience for their customer.”

Nationwide Express now delivers:

  • Faster check out – data entered in your comparative rater and what Nationwide can gather from third parties is automatically pre-filled in Nationwide Express
  • Simpler multi-lining – it’s always been fast to quote home and auto insurance, now you can add umbrella with just one click
  • Easier bind process - close the sale with one payment for multiple products, then any needed trailing documents are sent automatically

“The speed at which we’re enabling an independent agent to sell is unique among carriers, and a big advantage for our agency partners,” Rommel added. “At the end of the day, independent agents are the experts on their customers' needs and Nationwide Express is a great solution to meet those needs.”
