If you are an agent using Compulife, and have something you’d like to say, please send us a message.
I have one word for you:
Once again you have outdone yourself with the addition of your new module “Health Analyzer”. The amount of time this saves is very hard to calculate. You have managed to make term insurance quoting even easier. I don’t quite know how any agent selling term insurance would not subscribe to your service. The value you offer far exceeds the cost of your product. I submit to you that any agent selling term that doesn’t justify the nominal charge for your software should ask themselves if they are in the business to stay.
Here’s to you (and your team) Bob Barney, the ultimate Term Insurance Purist (T.I.P.) THANKS!
I wanted to congratulate and thank you for all of your efforts to promote the term4sale website. The site has received favorable mention in so many articles over the last year or so and I am consistently amazed at your continued success with the promotion of the site. I have received a steady stream of calls from well-qualified individuals all of which have been educated in advance through your site and typically are anxious to review and purchase the most favorable options for their life insurance coverage.
Keep up the excellent work!
I first became a customer of yours having been dissatisfied with my ability to keep up with the “term marketplace”. With your help and others – including my son who even comes to my rescue from Boston when I screw up and need a computer application “repaired” or “deciphered” – my method of doing business has become far more efficient and productive.
We’ve certainly come a long way since getting once a month updates through the mail and on disks. Even in those days, however, you enabled an individual practitioner like myself to stay competitive and operate efficiently.
YOUR GOOD WORK IS APPRECIATED!
I have been a member of your Compulife fan club since August of 1995. I have always been amazed at the huge amount of information included in your Update News. Your knowledge of our industry, your concerns, and your total honesty will continue to encourage me to be a fan club cheerleader.
I have always believed that one company never always had the best rates. Your software proves that point. Looking back on your original ad nine years ago, your information is still pertinent today. â€œCompulifeâ€™s program shows your client that you have shopped the market to locate the best term insurance available. You save valuable preparation time and Comulife gives you impressive presentations that tell your clients youâ€™re the agent to choose when comparing and buying life insurance.â€
You have saved me many hours of research time and have multiplied my impression with clients and prospects many times. Thanks for your efforts. You are a real pioneer in the life insurance comparisons process.
“Have a Terrific Day”
I started using your Compulife quotation system in 1991, and it really turned my practice around. I was always proud to be a broker, and felt it was important to help my clients by utilizing the widest possible range of companies to better serve their needs at the most affordable price, but I didn’t realize how much I was missing until Compulife gave me the ability to show my clients a full, unbiased survey of the entire Canadian brokerage market in an instant survey, in front of their eyes! This valuable tool truly transformed the way I have done business over the years.
How have my clients benefited? Many come to me for the first time, often seeking a second opinion, having only seen a quote from a single company, or perhaps two or three, from other brokers who may have felt that they were doing an adequate job. However, when they see the full marketplace available to them, and appreciate the fact that we are engaged in a collaborative process in which they are actively involved, they love it. It truly takes “is your rate the best?” completely out of the discussion, and focuses instead on how much insurance is enough, and how may we best obtain it. Needless to say, they quickly become clients, and generate a good deal of repeat business and referrals!
I have enjoyed the built-in tools, especially “Income from Capital Analysis.” Since I’ve used this from way back in the days of DOS, I like the screen where you quickly input raw data, though some brokers may prefer the consumer “walk-through.” Every other utility I’ve used generates a needs total that the consumer doesn’t fully understand, or relate to, and there remains an element of denial to overcome. Being able to show a simple, 4-column year-by-year result really makes an impact, and has helped a great many of my clients understand and obtain the amount of insurance they ought to have, instead of what they thought they should have.
The multiple-class environment of preferred rates has made our guidance as brokers more appreciated than ever. Indeed, when clients see the size of the marketplace and come to appreciate that there are sometimes subtle underwriting differences between companies in respect to specific health conditions and occupations/avocations, it highlights more than ever our value as brokers who help guide them through the process and obtain the best value for their money.
In helping me cut my workload, the Compulife system has been invaluable in separating Regular Smokers from Preferred Smokers and Occasional Pipe/Cigar smokers and even to locate Non-Smoker “Headstart” rates for Smokers! I remember how hard it was to find this information manually, and now you’ve made it even easier with the new Health Analyzer option, which is continually adding more and more screening options. Plus, the new Minimum T-100 premium survey has simplified yet one more process that formerly was very labor-intensive. Just when I think you can’t improve the program any further, you find a way to surprise me. Company reps get a stunned look on their faces when I tell them that “I hate their software.” Even when I need to know a specific rate for one company, I use your software instead of theirs, and I tell them so. It is so much faster and easier, especially when obtaining a rate for multiple lives with spousal discount. After using Compulife for so many years, I find the proprietary company programs very slow and cumbersome, and only use them for specific situations when I absolutely must.
Bob, in summary, your Compulife software is very consumer-friendly; over the past 13 years it has helped me to locate and obtain the best rates for my clients, while helping me to educate them at the same time. All the while, it has streamlined my workload and proven invaluable in helping me to operate a successful life insurance practice for these many years. Many thanks for your good work, Bob. Well done!
