Applied Epic

For my purposes, it seems to have lightening speed. I've never had an issue the software loading or moving from one page/ form to another.

Pros

The navigation menus and drop down options. Easy to read and associated forms are simple and easy to use.

Cons

There a lot of steps involved...seems some more populating information would be helpful.

Modern agency managment system

Overall, we tested the product and went with another system that made more sense for our smaller agency. (less than 5 employees)

Pros

This system is fast and efficient to keep all your clients information organize and within the click of the mouse.

Cons

Applied Epic is rather expensive for smaller agencies.

Everyday User

Pros

It includes all of the features to fully manage your book of customers. You can quote, email, and update policies all from inside Epic.

Cons

It's not very versatile. If you're not computer savvy, it may be a hard program to learn and adapt to. There are a lot of other software choices for insurance that are a lot simpler and easier to learn and manage than Epic.

EPIC is a very robust agency management system

Pros

Once you have the workflows set up for your organization and your staff trained processes are much faster.

Cons

Navigation can be difficult at first as the menu's change depending on where you are in the program.

Good Management System

Pros

It is a great way to keep all your clients together when you have multiple systems and carriers. If you write direct with popular companies the policies will download from the carrier directly which is nice.

Cons

They are tons of different features with is good but you end up not using everything to it's fullest capabilities. In the accounting portion of the system it is very hard to undo something if you make a mistake.

This is new to our agency as we have been on the TAM platform prior.

Pros

EPIC has now fully integrated employee benefits into this software that did not exist before within TAM

Cons

We don't go live until June 1st so it's a little early to provide any meaningful feedback on what I like least.

Our company recently transferred to Applied Systems EPIC and it has streamlined our whole company.

It benefits our whole company by helping us streamline our processes and implement strategies that benefit us and our clients in so many ways.

Pros

We recently changed over to EPIC. It did have a few bumps along the way but the customer support was A+ and they sent us support to train us in person which was a HUGE help so that we could all train and learn properly and have a real person explain things to us. The program does help us streamline our processes and keep up with our clients so much easier. We can send out emails for business as well as to send holiday and birthday greetings/coupons and out clients do appreciate it. We can keep track of notes on each client as we service them and attaching documents couldn't be easier! We needed something like this and the name EPIC is perfect for this program.

Cons

There are the usual bumps along the way when you are learning a new program, but the customer service is what really made the transition smooth.

Good system to get a quick price indication from a number of companies.

Fast price indication and a point in the right direction for which carrier to go to.

Pros

Transfer data input into agency management system. Quick buttons take you to the google map, Zillow and the property appraiser website.

Cons

Tends to lock up and stop working. RCE is much higher than most of my carriers. The Home Estimates shows only a few of my carriers.

Use Applied on a daily basis - very convenient and mostly easy to use.

Pros

Customer service is extremely helpful. There are so many different things you can do with Applied that it makes me wonder how we managed before we had it.

Cons

Some actions in the transactions section are difficult to reverse if a mistake is made. It would be helpful if everything was able to be edited.

This system is capable to do a lot but is not user friendly.

Pros

I do like that this program allows my agents to organize all of our clients information in one area. They are able to set up follow-up and work them accordingly. As an office manager I can see what they are doing by just running a report. The companies Applied partners with that allow downloads is great. My staff doesn't have to enter information in manually.

Cons

The program is able to do a lot but the training and resources are complicated and hard to use. The customer support staff are not as knowledgeable about all the capabilities of the program. This system also does not allow for errors. Once data is entered it is really hard, inconvenient or not able to be fixed.

Misled and Lied too.

Cons

Salesperson misleads people to earn a commission. The platform does not work as demonstrated. They will give you the run around when you try to get issues fixed or questions answered. Complete waste of time.

Modern layout, with lots of features.

Epic has a very simple tab and left side navigation, that expands when sub-categories are opened. The additional module available made the reach of the software extend into multiple departments.

Pros

Constantly getting updates from Applied. Software has a clean logical layouts. Ease of navigation is big to help with the training of new users.

Cons

The cost is a little high, and the use of the on-premise version vs the cloud-based is a little tricky when calling into support. Both version are still in production, but I get the feeling that on-perm will go away and we will be forced into needing a new solution.

We are just in the early stages of going to this software

Pros

The options for our direct bill commissions are so much better for this software than what we currently have. Also the report options are really great.

Cons

Right now it is the learning curve and getting used to doing things differently than what we have been using the past 15 years.
