UNIVERSITY PARK, Ill., April 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Applied Systems today announced that Swingle Collins & Associates has selected Applied EpicOnline for a single integrated software platform to support agency growth and increase operating efficiency. The top-performing Dallas agency will also implement Applied MobileProducer to provide its insurance producers with instant access to their client and prospect information through wireless tablets.

"To continue our growth, we needed a solution that would enable us to consolidate our multiple systems and take advantage of the many benefits a cloud-based system provides," said Frank Swingle, president, Swingle Collins & Associates. "Applied EpicOnline allows us to operate on a single platform that provides greater visibility into daily operations and efficient workflows for our employees. In addition, we are able to seamlessly integrate Applied CSR24 and Applied MobileProducer to meet the changing demands of today's insured."

Applied EpicOnline, the cloud version of Applied Epic, offers flexibility, cost savings and greater business continuity capabilities, while eliminating the need for agents and brokers to manage hardware, IT and security-related issues. Applied Epic is the insurance industry's fastest-growing agency and brokerage management system, providing a single software platform to drive sustainable business growth and profitability by automating insurance workflows, mitigating risk and reducing operating expenses.

Swingle Collins has experienced 30 percent organic growth in the last five years and has been an IIABA Best Practices agency for 18 consecutive years. The agency currently utilizes Applied CSR24 to deliver online customer self-service to insurance information and automated certificate processing. With the addition of Applied MobileProducer, Swingle Collins provides additional mobile capabilities to its producers and their customers and prospects.

Applied MobileProducer is the first independent agent and broker mobile application for insurance producers to access and manage client and prospect information through a tablet. With on-demand access to their data and intuitive productivity and risk assessment tools, producers have new and greater capabilities to increase sales, retention and customer satisfaction. The app will enable Swingle Collins' producers to deliver better service and maximize their time working with customers and prospects across the state of Texas.

"Leading insurance agencies and brokerages are rapidly adopting Applied Epic for a single platform that provides full visibility into business operations, efficient workflows and better servicing capabilities," said Reid French, CEO, Applied Systems. "As insureds increasingly expect anytime, anywhere service, Applied CSR24 and Applied MobileProducer ensure our customers can continually deliver higher levels of service for clients where and when they need it most."
