AgencyBloc: 2019 in Review
In a recent blog about the product development process at AgencyBloc, Jennifer Warne, VP of Product at AgencyBloc, shared: “Making a difference in our clients’ lives is what motivates us to do what we do.”
That’s one of the reasons why writing a blog like this is so fun for us—we thrive on seeing what our clients can accomplish with AgencyBloc.
Last year, we shared how Members of The Bloc utilized AgencyBloc throughout 2018. It proved to be a busy year for our clients!
2019 was no different, and we’re excited to share again what our clients accomplished throughout the year with AgencyBloc.
2,003,708 Completed Activities
Over 2 MILLION Activities completed in 2019! That’s a 38% increase over 2018. Calls made, meetings scheduled, policies updated…whatever it was, you got it done!
Activities are your “to-do” list—your way of ensuring your things get done while also maintaining thorough records of action and communication within the agency.
“I am so happy we found AgencyBloc. Creating activities is a great way to keep up on the day-to-day. We have tried other systems and this one really takes the cake. I think the best part of it is the customer service and the willingness to keep making it better.”
—Shea B., RJS and Associates Insurance Services
14,106,476 New & Updated Policies
Entering new business and working through renewals is undoubtedly a major part of an agency’s day-to-day—so while it’s not surprising, it’s still fun to see the numbers reflect this.
“AgencyBloc has been a great solution for my health insurance office. I used to struggle with a generic CRM to make it specific to health insurance. There was always something missing. Now it is a breeze to track clients, policies and conversations. I highly recommend AgencyBloc as your CRM if you sell any health insurance product.”
—Tammy M., McGregor Benefits
$714,469,413 in Commissions Processed
Over $714 MILLION in commissions processed for 2019—needless to say, it was a busy year! Using AgencyBloc, agencies save time and resources in processing commissions and identifying missed commissions from carriers.

“We've been able to cut our time processing commissions by 75%, saved nearly $33,000 every year in employee time, and have gained 90 hours back every month. Switching to AgencyBloc was the best decision I made as a commissions manager.”
—Leslye G., JTS Financial
16,457 Different Email Campaigns & Automated Workflows
There were over 16,000 different Email Campaigns and Automated Workflows in place in 2019—a 45% increase from 2018.
Agencies spent 2019 improving communication with clients, prospects, and agents using Email Campaigns, and working smarter, not harder with Automated Workflow.
Email Campaigns are one-off sends or drip campaigns to relay information to a group of contacts. Two examples of this: email newsletters or cross-sell campaigns.
Automated Workflows are emails sent or activities assigned based on triggers. An example would be when a policy renewal date is approaching, an email notification is sent to the policyholder and an activity is assigned to the agent.

“Since I started using Automated Workflows less than 2 months ago, I've written 6 new clients and I have received 6 referrals for new business. AgencyBloc allows me to set up a workflow timeline for my entire book of business ‘hands off’.”
—Danny M., Medicare101.net
