The Power of The Phone

This is a phrase that’s being thrown around a lot these days in the halls and offices of JM Wilson. But what does it mean exactly?

Well, for us it means a company-wide initiative to re-dedicate and re-commit ourselves to using this very powerful tool that is right at our fingertips.

In this age of instant information – it can seem very “quick and easy” to e-mail a response or question. But around the beginning of 2013, we asked ourselves a question. What if we simply picked up the phone instead? What if we could avoid lengthy e-mail chains, mis-interpretations, and really get to  know our customers and our accounts better, by having an actual conversation?

So, we set about changing our ways, and changing our culture.

Have we figured it all out yet? Well, no, real and true change takes time & effort. But we are committed to becoming the Managing General Agent of choice for independent insurance agents.  Because as our customers get to know us, we get to talk about real solutions for the insurance needs of their clients.

What does this mean for you, our customer? We hope that it means:

  • We are easily accessible to answer your questions!
  • We are friendly and helpful on the phone!
  • We want to talk to you about your insured, to get to know exactly how we can best help you , and bind more business!
  • We want to phone quote accounts for you that are simple, to keep them “low touch” and profitable!
  • We want to get to know you!

Feel free to give US a call today, to find out how we may best serve you! We look forward to talking with you soon!
