It’s here! The battle royale that you’ve been waiting for! The finals are going to be a showdown between the Manage Policy System Meteors and the Smokin’ Class Code Searchers. Who will win between our Titans of virtual hoops and who will slink back to their landing page cryin’? That’s up to you my friends…check in on Tuesday next week to vote and for your final chance to enter to win a $25 gift card.
In a crazy down to the wire finish with seconds on the clock and a three-pointer from deep in the corner, the Mysterious Important Links edged out the Streetwise newsletters to hang onto their spot. The Forms weren’t so Fortunate this week as those pesky Lingering Experience Mod Lookups bumped them out of the bracket. What will happen in week 3 is anyone’s guess. The only way to know for sure is to play next week on Tuesday 26th and check back for the winners inside the Feature Articles section of the MWCIA website on Thursday 28th.

Improvements in technology have made information more accessible than ever. In the age of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), telecommuting, and Results Oriented Working Environments (ROWE), it’s no longer a given that we are all accessing information on the same devices. With that in mind, MWCIA is constantly seeking ways to provide information in formats that appeal to just about everyone. MWCIA has rolled out another enhancement to one of our existing website functions to make it easier for our agents, underwriters, and the general public to access information from anywhere on any device. We have now updated our Merit Rating and AR Depop searches to be on a responsive design! So for all our underwriters, marketing reps, and agents working in their cars on the road, and away from their desks, we only have one thing to say – “don’t depop and drive”. Other products that conform to the responsive design are: the Minnesota Manuals, Web Membership, CBTs, and the Classification search. We are excited to offer this convenient feature to our subscribers. Stay tuned for more useful tips, tricks and enhancements to come.
