EUGENE, Ore., Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Palo Alto Software, the world leader in small business planning and financial management software, today announced a partnership with the nation's third-largest mutual property/casualty insurance company, American Family Insurance. Palo Alto Software's LivePlan business planning and small business dashboard tool will be integrated into the American Family internal corporate platform and customized with a suite of tools to support the unique needs of their 3,000+ agents, to help these small business owners plan strategically to better manage their growing businesses.
"Today's business environment demands quick forecasting and better tools," says Sabrina Parsons, CEO of Palo Alto Software, Inc. "With our integration, our goal is to help American Family agents become more successful, with a powerful, customized small business management suite that all agents will benefit from."
Now, American Family Insurance agents will be able to tap into the power of LivePlan to create strategic forecasts and get automated graphic views of key performance indicators through its small business dashboards. Furthermore, LivePlan's new forecasting features give agents the ability to more easily predict and track performance based upon the ever-changing dynamics of their business using the LivePlan Scoreboard. The LivePlan Scoreboard for American Family insurance automates the information an agent needs to track and manage their results, including key financial statements detailing the health of their business. Access to these automated reports allows the agents to actively plan and make educated decisions as their figures change.
"At American Family, we believe active planning is an important part of continually looking forward to serve our customers and support our agents," said Nick Adrian, Agency Strategy Business Director for American Family Insurance. "This partnership is another example of how we live our customer and agent commitments."
