The 2019 Partner Community National Conference held May 9th-10th in Columbus, Ohio was a memorable event on many levels, including celebrating 10 years since the current leadership team acquired SIS and launched the Partner XE management system, precursor to the Partner Platform.

Collaboration and Innovation from Industry Leaders and Experts

I have many wonderful memories reflecting on the journey of the last decade, including the progress made to the Partner XE agency management system and the growth of the Partner Community. During our National User Conference, we celebrated all these accomplishments, but the main focus of the event was on continual improvement around serving our Partner clients today and into the future.

At the conference, attendees heard from industry influencers like Steve Anderson, Mary Eisenhart Belka of Eisenhart Consulting, Brad Ruben of Archway Computing, and Carey Wallace of Ohio Insurance Agents (OIA). We also held several panel discussions on perpetuation, group sessions on targeted topics like accounting and client engagement, as well as a unique presentation on leadership by John Rue from Built to Lead.

Inspiration and Connection in the New Partner Platform

And if that wasn’t enough, over 30 learning sessions were standing room only, focused on helping Partner clients learn and grow. While the learning was going on, we introduced the new Partner Platform: a response to our Partner clients looking for a system that does great agency management as well as integrates more effective client retention and new business capabilities.

The fully integrated Partner Platform system includes great policy and financial management in Partner XE, simple and integrated sales and marketing capabilities in Partner XL, and innovative client self-service options in Partner Connect.  The combination of all three delivers a seamless experience that stretches from prospect to renewal and covers everything in between.

Anticipation of the Innovation to Come

Thank you to all Partner clients and speakers who made the trip from all over the country to celebrate, collaborate, and innovate with us. We continue to receive an overwhelming volume of positive feedback, with attendees saying they look forward to returning next year, with more colleagues in toe.

We look forward to continuing the momentum in the Partner Community with more regional learning events, connecting, collaborating, and innovating the Partner Platform and growing the Partner Community for years to come.
