Conference Commotion + Prime Day 2.0


Applied Net + IAOA Innovation Double Header

What a whirlwind the past week was! In case you weren’t there or missed our last newsletters, Archway Computer was in Nashville at both AppliedNet and IAOA Innovation, and we had an absolute blast. Our team had a great time learning, networking, educating, connecting with so many of our agency partners and industry peers, and even hanging with none other than superstar Ricky Bobby. A big thank-you to Applied Systems and IAOA for hosting these phenomenal events! If you have any photos from our booth or late-night events, please send them my way (assuming I look great in the photos).


Waste Less Time + Write More Business

Speaking of Applied Net, one of the big announcements of last week was that Applied Systems has Acquired Tarmika, the leading commercial lines rating solution that streamlines small business insurance. Tarmika is set to be fully integrated with Applied Epic and EZLynx, and over time, users can expect embedded commercial lines quoting capabilities powered by Tarmika right inside the agency’s management system.

(Another?) Amazon Prime Day

Sometimes it feels like it’s Prime Day everyday at this point, but Jeff Bezos is at it again with this week’s Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale, which ends today! To help you navigate through the hundreds of early Black Friday deals to shop, here are a few of our favorites at Archway HQ:


Renpho Percussion Massager

I love my Theragun, but if you’re not ready to make a hefty investment for one, check out this great dupe on Amazon, the Renpho percussion massager. It has five different head attachments for targeting different areas, soothing sore muscles, easing neck and shoulder pain, and working through tough knots. And who doesn’t love a massage? Normally $249.99, get it today for $69.99.


Second-Gen AirPods

You all know I love my AirPods – so much so we even did a giveaway at last week’s conferences for the new AirPods Pro 2s. But if you didn’t win the contest, just don’t care about the newer and more expensive features, check out the Second-Gen AirPods. Normally $159.00, on sale today for $89.99.


Waterpik Water Flosser

As a clean-teeth-freak, (is that a thing?) I attribute 95% of my good dental hygiene to my Waterpik Water Flosser. This gadget not only improves gum health, but also removes up to 99.9% of plaque with good ‘ol water pressure. Normally $99.99, get it today for $44.99.


The Last Word

I’m not going to lie – this past week was a crazy one, but incredibly rewarding. Getting to see so many familiar faces, and meeting so many new ones, are part of the reason why insurance conventions are one-of-a-kind. If you’ve never attended a convention and need some guidance on where to begin, feel free to contact me, or even check out these tips on attending your first, from the Insurance Conference Expert herself, SueAnn Priem. Thank you again for supporting the blog, and I hope you have a great, relaxing-post conference week!
