2. An insurance wholesaler functions as a white-label, back-office staff for easier account management.
The broker's name and agency number appears on every form, but the insurance wholesaler does all the behind-the-scenes work to obtain quotes from multiple carriers and then bind and write the policies. DBL Center provides the highest level of round-the-clock service to the insured, so brokers can spend more time selling and less time servicing accounts.
3. Brokers can harness the power of technology to track commissions, cancellations, and renewals.
DBL Center's proprietary Broker Dashboard app helps brokers retain accounts for greater profitability by tracking commissions, cancellations, and renewals from any internet-enabled device.
4. Earn high commissions.
