Success – Guaranteed

Patra Select’s guaranteed rates of return mean an increased margin for a book of small business. Profitability, as reported by Patra Select customers, often improves from "barely breaking even" to margins that average 50%. Patra Select has proven its ability to grow a book of small business, increase agency retention rates and enable more relationship- development time with small account holders without affecting larger, key accounts. All of this is done while significantly reducing agency policy error rates.

The beauty of this is now I’ve got a place to put small accounts. We get income and our people don’t have to spend any time on it. What can be bad about that? It’s a built-in profit margin.
