Atlas General Insurance Services announced the formation of the Client Solutions Group

Atlas General Insurance | May 21, 2020

  • Atlas General Insurance Services announced the formation of the Client Solutions Group.

  • Solutions Group, where the first available Client Solutions Representative will take your call and find solutions to your questions or concerns.

  • The types of questions the Client Solutions Group addresses are often centered on billing, audit, submission, or commission issues.


Atlas General Insurance Services is proud and excited to announce the formation of the Client Solutions Group. This group will be housed at our corporate headquarters, managed by Brent Lambert, and staffed by a group of individuals trained to manage the most common questions and challenges observed in our partner base community.

Similar to the rest of the insurance industry, Atlas is taking advantage of the technological advances to improve efficiency and convenience for the company and most importantly for our clients. As businesses continue to become highly automated, we find a common denominator in our clients’ feedback regarding the difficulty to reach a ‘live person’ by phone. As a result, innovation loses its value if it comes at the expense of those whom we are trying to serve.

Instead of reaching an automated operator giving you multiple choices that might not fit your particular question or need, all calls are now routed directly to our Clients Solutions Group, where the first available Client Solutions Representative will take your call and find solutions to your questions or concerns. In the event that our CSR is unable to assist with your inquiry, they will perform a “warm transfer” to another Atlas team member who is best able to support you. If assistance is not immediately available, they will take ownership of the question or concern and perform all necessary follow-up until a resolution is found.

The types of questions the Client Solutions Group addresses are often centered on billing, audit, submission, or commission issues. It is important to point out that very few calls or concerns fall outside our ability to resolve the inquiry. As a value-add to partnering with Atlas, your questions will now be answered with you on the phone. Client Solutions Group is determined in strengthening relationships between our team members and clients for a much more successful interaction with Atlas.

Stampede Insurance Services and Bliss Drive Establish New Partnership

Stampede Insurance | April 23, 2022

Stampede Insurance Services, an independent insurance agency based in Pasadena, CA, is happy to announce its new partnership with Bliss Drive. Bliss Drive is a well-known digital marketing company specializing in B2B inbound lead generation solutions. One of the key products offered by Stampede Insurance in Pasadena is general liability insurance. They want to point out that every business is exposed to the risk of accidents and injuries happening on the business premises. General liability insurance coverage can provide the protection needed by California businesses in case unexpected events happen where the business is forced to spend on legal fees. California general liability insurance, along with your property and work comp policies, protects your business if you're sued for personal injury or property damage. A typical policy will cover those accidents or damages that occur on-site or as a result of using goods or services sold by the company. In addition, coverages can be designed to cover additional costs like attorney fees or court costs.” Rene Rebollo, a spokesperson for Stampede Insurance Services. Stampede Insurance agents can help clients in taking into account all aspects of the general liability insurance package in order for the client to have the most relevant policy available. These agents will help in customizing a particular plan that works for businesses in Pasadena, including the Long Beach, Los Angeles, Anaheim, San Bernardino, and Riverside areas. The company is also licensed to offer its services in Alabama, Arizona, California (#0H18184), Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, and Texas. They can also provide contractors general liability insurance and other coverages that are essential for contractors, such as commercial auto coverage, business risk insurance, and insurance for tools and equipment. California contractors' insurance can be quite confusing at times, which is why their agents are always ready to assist clients during the process of choosing the proper coverage for a particular company. Meanwhile, Bliss Drive believes that search engine optimization (SEO) is a key component of any successful online marketing strategy. If done correctly, SEO can help in significantly improving a website’s visibility when a potential customer searches for a particular keyword or phrase. And it is vital to maintain high rankings on the major search engines, or else the competition will eventually catch up and surpass the company’s position on the search engine pages. Bliss Drive crafts full-spectrum SEO campaigns after in-depth planning and research, and these are supported by real-world data. They combine proven methodologies and cutting-edge technology with their proprietary approaches for coming up with custom-fitted solutions that are based on the requirements of a particular company. Pasadena’s population is just over 140,000, which means that businesses can take advantage of the diverse economy mixed with Pasadena’s small-city environment. Doing business in a smaller city means that your reputation is more important than ever. Word-of-mouth travels fast, and the key to securing loyal customers in the area is to establish yourself as a leader in your industry. This is why digital marketing is so important, as it helps spread the word about your business while allowing you to interact directly with your customers.” Richard Fong, founder, and CEO of Bliss Drive, LLC. Having started its operation in 2010, Stampede Insurance Services is capable of servicing clients throughout the nation and are licensed in many of the states. Each one of their clients is provided with a dedicated team of experts that work together to expertly all of the client’s concerns. They specialize in general liability, business owners policy, builders risk, bonds, contractors, commercial auto, commercial property, commercial umbrella, and workers compensation insurance and allow clients to save money on their business insurance. They also offer all kinds of personal insurance coverages to clients in all of their licensed states, including homeowners insurance, boat & watercraft insurance, auto insurance, motorcycle insurance, and flood insurance. They also provide condo insurance, earthquake insurance, landlord insurance, renters insurance, and manufactured / mobile home insurance.

Then, when MercuryGO customers renew their policies, they could receive a discount of up to 40% in addition to their participation discount, depending upon their driving score. Safe driving is a very important issue for Mercury and we seek to innovate driver education of all ages on the importance of being alert behind the wheel, while also equipping them with the skills to avoid potentially dangerous driving behaviors, Most auto collisions are preventable, so MercuryGO is a practical way to help keep drivers focused on the road, which as a result, reduces fatalities and serious injuries. Plus, they could also end up saving a lot of money with this program. So it's a win-win situation." Barbara Glenn-Rader, Marketing Manager for Illinois at Mercury Insurance.

MercuryGO will help solve that problem by using technology that has reduced distracted driving by 29%, speeding by 45%, and hard braking by 17%. MercuryGO provides useful in-app tips to help users become safer drivers. Added benefits include: A sharing option for families, which allows all participating drivers to see who is the safest.

The opportunity to earn up to an additional 40% discount at renewal.
