Reduce your policy processing costs today!   2011-08-05
McClelland and Hine wants to help reduce your overhead! Did you know that as a Web Viewer agent, you can obtain your MHI policies and endorsements online?

Remember mail handling in the good ol days? It consisted of paying someone to drive to the post office, pick up the mail, drive back from the post office, open the mail, stamp it, sort it, scan it, route it, deliver it, etc., etc

What if instead, you:

1) received an e-mail notification that your insureds policy or endorsement is ready;
2) clicked on a link in that e-mail; then a couple of clicks and a few moments later you were viewing those documents on your computer screen with options to download, print, save, or e-mail the pdf file at your convenience and discretion.

MHI can also offer e-mail notification in batches. Policy and endorsement retrieval e-mails are queued throughout the day and then transmitted to your office in bulk at night. This can help reduce e-mail traffic during the busiest times of your work-day. Contact your MHI branch manager or marketing representative for more information or to sign up for this free service.
