In this week’s edition:

Stargate Takes-Off!

Our long-awaited TIC Agent Portal called Stargate has launched!

THIS PORTAL IS NEW-we’ve never had this before!

All quote, binder, and policy documents created after 1/1/2022 are accessible for both Personal Lines and Commercial Lines. Additionally, payment status on any active invoice can be looked up real time. Once we are able to record the payment in the system, you will be able to see it paid. To access Stargate, reach out to Tim Gibson at Tim will provide you with access. Stargate is located at the top right hand side of our website for your convenience.

For those of you currently using our Gold Star Personal Lines Rater on our website, you should have received an email from Tim last Monday that explained how to access the Gold Star Rater through Stargate. It still looks the same as when you used it previously. You will find it as the second tab at the top once you enter Stargate.

We think that Stargate will be a gamechanger for our relationship and provide you with unprecedented access to the business we write together. We really appreciate you all as we strive to dazzle you with our tech and product innovations.

How did the space teddy bear cross the road?

Nothing slows down an Amazon delivery person-not even a real bear! Last week Ring and another person captured a bold delivery driver as he scared off a bear blocking his delivery. Short cute video-enjoy! Amazon Delivery Driver Scares Bear
