Today we’re discussing web browsers and how choosing the right one can help you quote, service and manage your book of business more efficiently.

If you’re an independent insurance agent, you know that a carrier’s websites and systems may have optimal performance with particular browsers, so make sure you ask your carrier which one you should be using if you have a choice.

For a lot of us, Internet Explorer may have been the browser of choice in the past.

But it’s officially getting a retirement party in 2022. Happy retirement, IE!

That said, at UFG Insurance we encourage all of our agents to make the switch to Google Chrome when using platforms like ufgAgent, ufgmarketingsolutions.com and more. It’s the most compatible with our systems because…

No, so sorry, but for things like quoting new business and accessing our marketing materials, Google Chrome is our preferred browser for agents. Sorry about that, Internet Explorer.

Yeah, anyway, if you are not able to use Google Chrome, please make sure your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge browser—the replacement for IE—is up to date with the latest version available.
