Zywave Enhances User Convenience with Zywave® Sidebar

Milwaukee, WI — March 23, 2010

-Zywave today released Zywave® Sidebar, a free, downloadable application designed to extend ease of use and convenience to users of its software suite of insurance solutions.

-One secure and simple download provides clients universal access to their Zywave® tools, bypassing the need to enter additional user names and passwords from a product launch pad or log in page.

-In addition to universal login capabilities, a user can choose from a library of modules, which will continue to grow based on user input. Options at launch offer desktop access to: Broker Briefcase®, an industry-leading marketing communications library, and quick search feature for templates housed in the application; featured Broker Briefcase templates including helpful how-to-use information; at-a-glance training opportunities; and AgencyFuel™ news for quick access to timely industry and product information.

-Flexible to a user’s needs, Zywave Sidebar is completely customizable based on a user’s preferences — modules can be turned on and off via a simple point and click. Customization brings information to the surface to efficiently keep clients in the know on topics of interest.

-Zywave Sidebar was just one of several winning ideas generated from an employee innovation contest introduced in 2009. Its ongoing purpose is to encourage and reward employees for their grassroots development initiatives focused on continuously anticipating and enhancing the Zywave user experience.
