the most overlooked truth about how to improve your forms handling
If you have ever
wondered what the single most important benefit is in ACORD
forms services, that when provided, would single-handedly account for more ease
of use than any other benefit, I tell you, without a doubt - it's having your
forms current and available anywhere, anytime. That's because the single most
important need of any forms users is... forms you can
use when and where you need them.
you can spend a bundle installing an ACORD forms system on your current PC's
or office network. Then you can spend your time setting each work station up
to run that system. But even all that work is not going to do you much good
if you don't also spend more time each month updating your PC or network with
new forms and revisions. And even all that won't do you much good if you are
away from your office and need a form. Or if you have a PC breakdown and you

True Purpose of ACORD Forms Systems
You've heard it
said - "Knowledge is Power". The true purpose of ACORD forms - and
all other forms - is simply to pass knowledge - information - from one
person to another. The form - the written record - is the time tested
and accepted way to do this in business.
makes this process faster and easier is the goal of every forms system. The
new interactive technologies of the Internet - collectively known as Web 2.0
- are bringing all of us abilities we have always thought should be so obvious,
but were somehow always just out of reach.
of an Insurance Geek
name is Duke Williams. I'm the one standing.
I started my insurance career in 1975 as a commercial underwriter
for Crum & Forster. While I was there, C&F began automating Workers
Compensation on its new mainframe computers. I received my very first salary
bonus for usability suggestions on that system.
Over the years
I have worked as an underwriter, agent and agency owner. In 1981 I co-founded
one of the first comparison rating software services. I was involved in designing
systems on computers from the first PC's -Apple II's and Radio Shack TRS-80
Model III's - to Windows based systems that passed data back and forth from
agents to insurance companies.
In 1995 I entered
the Internet arena, and learned quickly that the Internet is infinitely
different from other computer platforms. Over the next several years
I had to unlearn most of the things I already knew - and I
was forced to become a student again in order to effectively
use the new capabilities of the Internet.
From 1995 to 2004,
I voraciously pursued the craft of web design and usability.
I helped create systems of all types - systems that you probably use today on
some of the company web sites you have to work with.
By 2004 I was
convinced my re-education for the web was complete. I had come to know exactly
what works and what doesn't on the Internet. And one of the keys is that you
cannot bring old programs forward and just give them an Internet
screen. You have to understand the whole new set of possibilities
and start from scratch.
In 2004 I launched
Simply-Easier-ACORD-Forms to offer instant access to all current ACORD forms.
I made it an Internet only system with the intent of adding significant capabilities
over time. I built it as an Internet only, stand alone, business model so I
would not have to worry about losing revenue from my existing customers.
In the first 2
1/2 years I have had over 50,000 sign ups. That's more than 3 times the published
customer count for any other ACORD forms provider. Obviously people have responded
I love the web site... lots of good stuff.

Internet Business Model - Why You Get More for Less
Being an Internet
only company our business model reflects why and how people use the Internet.
- They want free
- They want it
- They want to
buy something they need.
- They want it
We decided to
give away for free what all the ACORD forms providers at the time were charging
$100 to $150 a year for - Plain Paper forms. After all, the cost to us to provide
these basic level forms with no enhanced capability was very minimal. And once
we had put them online, the cost for another user to us was basically exactly
different about our costs? Since we only make the service
available online we have no mailing cost, no cost of CD's and packaging,
no CD duplication costs. Since you do not have to install the programs
on your computer we do not have service calls about problems for installation.
Since we only sell online we do not have the cost of sales people.
ALL these savings on to you.
Next we decided
to offer enhanced forms that you could fill out on screen and print for $99.95
a year - a product that the other services were - and still probably are - charging
$250 and up - with an additional per user charge. We have no per user fee or
allows us to remove many of the costs we have and the
costs you have in using the service. It is not just that we save time
on not helping with installation issues - you save time not having
to do installation.
we do provide 800 number customer service for any questions you do have.
Finally, we introduced
a system - Cap-Dat ACORD (Cap-Dat for capture data) that lets you really use
all the power of the Internet to work anywhere, anytime with saved information.
We have been able to add an incredible list of features - and a continuously
growing list of features to our service.
great thing about an Internet business model - you are always
on the current version. We never try to sell you an upgrade from
version 7.1 to 7.2 of the same service. And you never have to convert
image how ridiculous Google or Amazon or Yahoo! would look if they had
a dozen legacy versions in use by different users. The world of the Internet
just doesn't work that way - but because of legacy business models of
our competitors - how they make their money - and legacy
technology models - most of the software you have ever bought to solve
your agency needs does work that way. You end up paying more
simply because of the very real limitations of how your current provider
makes their money.
All of the improvements
in that system have come together in my new Cap-Dat ACORD service. Here are
some of the benefits you get from our service.

So you see, I
have added all these benefits to your service for no extra cost. And I will
continue to add more and more benefits on a regular basis at no extra cost to
you. Quite frankly, there isn't another service out there that's as aggressive
as this - at any price.
Providers Will Not Change to This Approach
I see you saying
to yourself - "Well, Duke is making sense on all of this. And I sure can't
complain about getting more value for less money. But surely the other ACORD
forms services will start doing the same thing."
Here is why they
will not. I know this because I have had products I built for Windows and PC's
replaced in this same way.
Example of Business Decisions
Let's say we have
a company - AgencyFormsChoice - that has been providing ACORD forms for 15 years.
They have 10,000 customers that pay an average of $325 a year. Those customers
break down into the following user groups...
Revenue per User
Now this company
does a great job. They employ 25 to 30 people. They have great service. Their
owner is making a great living.
If they change
their products and pricing to the Internet business model, first they have to
pay for a major development project - 6 months to a years work costing $500,000
to $1,000,000. Then they have to change their pricing from an average of $327.50
to $150.00 per customer per year. They immediately go from making $3.275 million
a year to $1.5 million a year.
any rational person that is the wrong direction. They have to look
hard at how fast they are losing customers. The truth is most of their customers
are happy and not shopping for an alternative. So the right decision for this
company to make is to add more features to its existing product to keep as many
customers happy for as long as possible and just not be able to sell to as many
Their choice may
come down to "change and go broke fast, or they can stay the same and maybe
or maybe not be around in ten years."
Heck, even with
my Batchelor of Arts in Spelling, I can do this math.
All This Mean to You?
It means new technology
will give you a better product that is constantly improved with no increase
It means different
cost structures determine what a service charges - not the features or benefits
of the service.
It probably means
that the time will come - and soon - when it makes sense to trade in
that beautiful horse and carriage for a newfangled automobile.
About Systems I Can Install on My Network that Allow Internet Access?
I believe the
big draw back here is that you are responsible for installing and managing the
system. Remember, this is one of the significant cost savings and time savings.
There are questions
you need to ask yourself before you go down this path.
- Do I know enough
about Internet security to protect my servers if I put them online?
- Do I really
want to spend more time and money on hardware than I already do on managing
my local area network?
- Do I just enjoy
working with computers and doing updates?
If your answer
is not a big "Yes" to all of these, you are much better off letting
someone who specializes in this do it for you.
Internet Has Changed Everything - Even ACORD Forms Finally
for the Internet give you the ability to securely access forms and information
from anywhere at anytime.
services, by their very nature, offer you more for less. Less money, less
time, less work.
You get more
done in less time when the forms, information and tools you need are always
- Your business
runs smoother, you and your staff are more productive, when you can focus
on your customer's needs instead of your computer systems.
is All This Worth to You?
Back in 2003 when I started
this building our ACORD forms product I spent about 500 hours on nights and
weekends making the forms fillable. Then I had learned enough to go back and
do them all again a second time. Finally, the third time through I thought they
were right. Then I had several of our staff spend the last two years programming
improvements by the dozen -and they are still at it. I would have been glad
to pay a lot to avoid all that - How about you?
What is the
value to you of saving hours of time each month? Who knows?
Plus we have added our Proposals
and Coverage Explanation Forms - which we have sold seperately for $247. as
an included bonus. Then we added Document Management so you can have a paperless
office - this feature usually adds several thousand dollars to any system.
The good news
is that you don't have to pay any of that. Your price is only $250 a
We even offer
a monthly payment option of only
- $24.95 a month.
