Imperial PFS Introduces Quivit, a Gamechanger for the Insurance Industry

Imperial PFS | October 04, 2021

Imperial PFS Introduces Quivit, a Gamechanger for the Insurance Industry.

Called a "gamechanger" by its first users, Quivit is the first insurance-specific product to merge document signing, storage and an integrated payment processing system – allowing for both paid-in-full and financed transactions. The result is a dramatically streamlined workflow, transforming a complex, high-touch process into an efficient, digitally-driven sales closer. Until Quivit, there was no way for insurance agents to quickly prepare insurance quotes and applications for their insureds within the same secure digital space.

We listened to our clients, recognized a gap, and found a way to provide a solution, We worked with agents to develop a digital product that merges selling, managing account communication, and collecting payments for policies in a single step, without the need for additional software from other providers. Now, work that once took days takes only minutes – which means Quivit will help expedite sales and improve payment collection in a single step.

- Herb Chirico, IPFS's Chief Marketing Officer and Senior VP.

User-friendly and intuitive, Quivit makes it easy to send premium finance quotes, track progress, understand the status, send alerts, obtain signatures, collect payments and close the sale. Quivit also integrates seamlessly with existing systems and processes, which means it doesn't require replacing your current technology or agency management system (AMS).

Quivit is going to revolutionize the insurance industry, Quivit shortens the sales cycle, so agents can close sales far faster. It's the key to unlocking untapped revenue opportunities.

- Frank Friedman, IPFS's CEO and President.

Even its name has special significance, as Quivit combines the words 'quick,' 'pivot' and 'IT.'

Quivit is available now to select IPFS Clients and will be widely-released later this fall.
