Leading Provider of Insurance Marketing & Support Services Implements
Virtual Broker Resource Center
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – June 18, 2012 – ON24, Inc., the global leader in webcasting and virtual event solutions, today announced that LISI, a leading general agent for insurance companies, has implemented the ON24 Virtual Briefing Center solution for the LISI Academy, a broker enablement and training portal for its clients and business partners. The ON24 solution will be a cornerstone of ongoing education and training programs delivered by LISI, with a kickoff webcast scheduled for June 20, 2012 – launching both the LISI Academy’s resource center and new insurance products from MetLife in conjunction with CoPower.
LISI provides insurance brokers with the support, service and scale that they need to successfully operate in the marketplace, delivering quoting, proposals, marketing assistance and underwriting, as well as carrier updates and resources, supported by continuing education and training. In addition to MetLife, featured carriers include Aetna, Kaiser Permanente, Health Net, UnitedHealthcare and Anthem Blue Cross.
The virtual environment will enable brokers to view live and on-demand webcasts covering the latest insurance products, regulatory updates and related topics – providing LISI clients with an “always-on” resource for around-the-clock access to training materials. In addition to convenience and saving time, as well as the costs associated with travelling to in-person meetings, LISI Academy users will be empowered to complete continuing education (CE) courses through the ON24 virtual environment; brokers and their employees will be able to take courses to fulfill ongoing government requirements for licensing.
“We are committed to the success of our brokers and carriers,” said Becky Patel, CEO and President of LISI. “The adoption of ON24’s virtual communications solution for the LISI Academy underscores that commitment – leveraging technology to provide our clients with a flexible online education experience that saves them time and money while keeping them up to date on the latest industry news and information.”
In the future, the LISI Academy will provide a broad range of information, including regulatory updates and training/education content that goes beyond traditional product and service data, such as time management courses for brokerage employees. In addition, the LISI Academy will offer training and education programs for employer groups which purchase insurance plans from LISI customers – providing a value-added service and deepening LISI’s relationships with its target customers.
“By selecting the ON24 solution for its education and training needs, LISI is taking a key leadership position in the health insurance industry,” commented Denise Persson, CMO of ON24. “The ON24 virtual learning platform gives end users unprecedented access to online educational content, while enabling brokers and insurance carriers to quickly scale training and reduce costs – a win-win in our book.”
