The quotation system for your omni-channel sales activitiesKeep pace with digital transformation - separate your sales strategy from the transformation of your back-end systems
In the world of digital transformation, the replacement of back-end systems takes up time and resources. So how do you maintain speed? By using Faktor-IOS (Insurance Offer System) as a central quotation system and reacting swiftly to changing market conditions.
With Faktor-IOS the rules relating to sales logic are configured centrally and are accessible across departments and sales channels. Faktor-IOS takes the relevant product information from the existing back-end systems. On this basis, sales products and variants are created in Faktor-IOS and are then adapted to the respective channel strategy. Both back-end and front-end systems are connected via services.
Faktor-IOS enables you to implement your digital sales strategy quickly and easily. Faktor-IOS maps your offer and quotation functions across divisions and channels on different platforms. This allows you to use both existing and new distribution channels, e.g. third-party providers and social media channels, including virtual assistants. You can create channel-specific sales products based on your existing products, enabling you to offer your customers and agents tailor-made product and service modules.
As part of our digital sales strategy, we offer our clients cross-channel access to our insurance products and a seamless customer journey across all ERGO's sales channels. With their offer system, Faktor Zehn provides us with a central software component and supports the implementation of our strategic project.
