Overview
Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance operates through a large network of agents located throughout the state. With no customer relationship management system in place, agents had to rely on their own individual tools and techniques for keeping track of prospective and existing customers. But the inefficient processes and lack of visibility from these disparate systems hindered agent productivity.

As a Microsoft shop, Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance selected Microsoft Dynamics for its user-friendly, intuitive interface, and its ability to integrate with administrative systems and other Microsoft applications, such as Outlook.

One of the additional benefits of Dynamics in comparison to other CRM systems was the power of choice that it offered. With Microsoft Dynamics, Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance could go on the cloud or onpremise; other CRM systems did not provide both options.

Prior to Microsoft Dynamics, agents’ disjointed systems created time-consuming and inconsistent data tracking. Microsoft Dynamics removes the guesswork, allowing agents to make the best use of their time by easily searching, identifying, and working on the prospects that present the highest value.
