Tips and Tricks

Are you looking for an EASY way to create a standalone Hail quote from your MPCI policy units

If your answer is "yes", make sure to check out this Tips and Tricks! Save time by creating a Hail quote from existing information! Our EASYquote® "Create Standalone Hail Quote" feature has the ability to take an MPCI quote and effortlessly create an EASYhail or standalone Hail quote with the same unit/line information.

The Locations, Policy Form codes, and Coverage Per Acre fields are editable by County/Crop/Practice, so you can fill in these fields quickly by bulk updating versus one line at a time.
