    Who Will Buy Direct And Why? A Case For Commercial Insurance
    With the continued expansion of online shopping of commercial insurance, the question many insurers are asking is – should we participate? Are small commercial buyers actually buying online? Is the agency channel here to stay? We’ll share current results of our survey across 200 small business decision makers looking at the question of whether they prefer to use an agent or buy direct and the role that technology plays in that decision. Join us for this informative and engaging discussion about how small businesses are adapting to technology advancements and changing preferences in purchasing business insurance.
