We Understand

As life insurance industry experts, we understand one of the biggest challenges faced by those who manufacture and distribute life insurance products. TOO MUCH DATA and information, TOO LITTLE TIME to understand and analyze. We place accurate, meaningful data in the hands of our partners giving them an unparalleled competitive advantage.

A Competitive Advantage

To put it simply, we are an extension of your team. We remove the administrative aspects of data intelligence so you can focus on the strategy, and we create efficiencies in the process.
We asked our clients to tell us exactly how we help them, and these were some of their responses:

"LifeTrends is one of the smarter vendor resource decisions we have ever made."

"True partners."

"We see benchmarking and changes within 48 hours, versus 2 weeks to a month."

"Their information is consistently accurate."

"They are on top of all industry changes – all product changes."

"When a producer needs case design assistance, an internal case design person would have to run multiple illustrations, multiple carriers/software – timeframe could take 2 to 3 hours. With LifeTrends it only takes 30 seconds."

"We get information much sooner, and have 100% of the information."

"We position the data we receive from LifeTrends as our key competitive differentiator."

"They provide a resource that each partner truly believes is valuable."

"We look like heroes!"
