Sat in on a webinar a week or so ago.  The title of it intrigued me since I could not figure out why it was setting such a low expectation for a certain metric.  Then I gave them an hour of my life and they basically explained why.

Most people will immediately think it is the company.  The company sets the rates and the underwriting standards that you accepted when you signed your contract with them.  The company determines which of your tickets, accidents and claims will have an impact on your rate and for how long. ** Despite what you may have heard corporations are not people and cannot get tickets or have accidents or claims**

BUY FROM YOU!!!

Why would you make it hard for someone to spend money with you?  No idea.  Human beings are worth money to your business.  For as much commerce has moved on-line a good human being can still beat a computer.  If you don’t believe that you can do the actual math.
