Commercial Backoffice for All

Welcome to the VIAA blog.

This is a way for VIAA and members to hear about new opportunities.



  • Are you focused on Commercial Lines, and find yourself falling behind on quotes, proposals, billing and claims issues?
  • Do you specialize in Personal Lines but don’t want to pass up prospects for Commercial Lines?
  • Are you new to insurance and intimidated by Commercial Lines?             

 One of our Strategic Partners has a solution.  It is unique to SIAA.

                Henry spoke about it at our VIAA conference and a handful of our members have been pilot agents.  TRAVELERS has developed Commercial Lines Express “CLXpress” for you and your clients. 


WHAT YOU DO:  You give Travelers the Name, Phone # and type of business and expiration date.


  • Travelers will contact the person, gather info, and provide a quote & proposal.
  • They take care of applications.  Their E&O covers.
  • They will keep you “in the loop” during this process.
  • They are issuing policies on about 50% of the ones they quote—not a bad “hit ratio”.
  • They will do BOPs, Work Comp and Commercial Auto.
  • Their Service Center handles Certificates, endorsements, billing, audits, account rounding.
  • They pay YOU the commission .


In terms of commitment they want you to refer 2 leads per month minimum.


                I think this is a program that could benefit you directly and lead to more referrals if your clients are pleased with the process.  You do not need to be a current Travelers agent to enter this program.   If you want to join let me or Elizabeth Powers know.  It takes 1-2 weeks to get a code.

The program will launch countrywide on Wednesday June 26th with a special webinar.  See below.
