POMPANO BEACH, Fla., April 28, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aplifi (formerly Blue Frog Solutions), a leading provider of Life & Annuity Order Management, Client Management and Marketing solutions for the insurance and financial sectors, announces that Levinson & Associates, one of the nation's fastest growing privately owned Brokerage General Agencies, has chosen Aplifi's full suite of products to integrate within their iGenius platform. Included in the offering is Aplifi's I-Relay Client management and marketing system along with AFFIRM for Life, AFFIRM for Annuity, and PolicyBox.

I-Relay will serve as the base platform for Levinson's producers going forward and will provide an easy and seamless way for them to move from contact to quote and e-application through policy delivery without having to rekey essential data. In addition, Levinson will offer turn-key marketing programs for their producers using I-Relay which will further increase life and annuity sales along with end user adoption of the platforms.

Levinson has experienced a tremendous amount of growth over the past several years and attributes this to providing extraordinary service to their producers coupled with offering unique ways to leverage technology in the field. Many industry leaders have continually ranked the organization as a top submitter of electronic applications and promoting electronic methods of doing business with their field force. Delivering a solid technology platform for producers extends the commitment and philosophy that Levinson embraces of helping build a better practice for the producer. The organization sees technology investments, which lead to greater efficiencies and superior execution, as key differentiators in the market.

"Levinson has set the bar high in the brokerage arena when it comes to helping producers realize the benefits offered by using a solid technology platform. We know that many platforms were evaluated and tested before selecting Aplifi, which underscores our position as an innovative leader within the insurance community," said Dan Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer, Aplifi. "We could not be more thrilled to have Levinson use and endorse our product set. They truly have an exceptional agency and one that we are fortunate to be associated with. We look forward to a long and rewarding relationship together."  

"For the past several years we have promoted pieces of technology to producers and have had great success with adoption. Finally, we have the ability to pull all of those pieces of the technology puzzle together into a single platform through I-Relay which is the real key to success," said Bill Levinson, Managing Partner, Levinson & Associates. We are excited about the future with Aplifi as it's only been a short time and we already have several hundred producers using the I-Relay platform and fully expect to have more than 1,000 by year-end.   We believe the Aplifi suite delivers a tremendous competitive advantage for our producers in the marketplace. They can sell more products from more carriers, close business faster and generate more substantial commissions. We at Levinson & Associates see this as the future of the brokerage industry and will be taking immediate internal measures to push more business towards those carriers supporting Aplifi's AFFIRM and PolicyBox platforms."
