John Hancock Introduces Industry-first Web-based LTC Sales System

BOSTON, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today John Hancock launched LTC Captivate, its new web-based long-term care (LTC) insurance selling system designed to expand sales opportunities by improving the customer experience and enabling remote selling. LTC Captivate allows financial professionals to better meet their clients' needs by providing a way for them to learn about the coverage, select plan features, and apply online, at their convenience. 

LTC Captivate offers a robust educational component, with modular content and functionality that supports face-to-face and remote selling scenarios, removing logistical barriers from potential sales opportunities. Financial professionals can monitor their clients' progress through the three steps, Learn, Plan, and Apply, making it easy to address questions or resolve issues. The technology also includes faster, "straight-through" electronic processing that facilitates proper application completion and submissions, while reducing the delays and expenses associated with paper applications. 

"John Hancock is continually looking for ways to meet consumers' changing needs," said Laura Vail Wooster, vice president of Marketing, John Hancock Insurance. "We know that people lead busy lives and we developed this new LTC Captivate system to allow them to learn about LTC insurance at their convenience, while having the ability to consult with their financial advisor, either in person or online."

LTC Captivate, along with a comprehensive training program, can be accessed by producers visiting jhltc.com and clicking on the LTC Captivate link. Wooster contends that the technology has the potential to change the way LTC insurance is sold in the future. "LTC Captivate is an innovative selling system that is designed to broaden the reach of financial professionals, improve efficiencies in their practice, and expand their LTC insurance sales."
