There are customer relationship apps for almost every field job, but apparently not for insurance agents. A columnist looks into this puzzle
It seems so obvious — a customer relationship management application for insurance agents. After all, these people can’t do business without doing business with customers. An app that keeps track of people by name, address, age product choice and other factors should be in demand by the industry.

What makes the insurance industry different, he writes, is there are independent agents and agents tied to specific insurance companies. So how does an company its own agents and independent agents distribute leads and share customer information?
Sounds like a problem a software developer should turn his or her mind to.
