“The cluster platform at DAIS allows us to run our agency business separately and independently, while providing us with the opportunity to join forces with like-minded peers to achieve economies of scale. And, with the combined purchasing power comes potential for greater profit-sharing bonuses for all members. Scale also begets access. Our market access expands and the list of carriers we can tap into increases. Our efforts are further bolstered by our association with Networked’s roster of carriers.

One other intangible and invaluable benefit of the cluster experience is information exchange and interactions amongst the members on issues that are paramount to us all: business development, staff training & compensation, M&A, transition planning and exit strategies.”

Service Solutions

Going beyond market access, DAIS redefines the ‘cluster’ group to offer members additional agency support solutions. As a subsidiary of Networked Insurance Agents, DAIS members draw on the most comprehensive agency support in the industry from over 100 insurance professionals including,

  • 30+ account marketing professionals for placement of tougher risks, smaller accounts, or anything in between
  • A team to serve as an interim marketing desk during member staffing challenges
  • In-force policy servicing
  • Online account management
  • Benefit of solid carrier relationships allowing us to advocate for members. In aggregate, DAIS members create strong carrier relationships built on substantial premium volumes and superior loss results. The stability and market impact benefit every member.

Members use a variety of other services from Networked including, New Account Marketing & Placement, Personal Customer Service, Online Account Management, Processing, Accounting & Billing, and Renewal Remarketing. Prefer to add marketing expertise and resources to your captive agency or independent agency rather than hiring additional staff? Consider a Networked Membership Plan. More than 1,000 independent agencies are already leveraging the knowledge, markets and support of Networked's service teams.

Join an agency membership group that sets
itself apart from the traditional cluster.

"I work with our industry’s top agents and interact with the company’s top executives. We meet to share ideas and address issues with the ultimate goal of making a better cluster for agents to join and succeed in this very difficult business we call insurance.”
