“The cluster platform at DAIS allows us to run our agency business separately and independently, while providing us with the opportunity to join forces with like-minded peers to achieve economies of scale. And, with the combined purchasing power comes potential for greater profit-sharing bonuses for all members. Scale also begets access. Our market access expands and the list of carriers we can tap into increases. Our efforts are further bolstered by our association with Networked’s roster of carriers.

One other intangible and invaluable benefit of the cluster experience is information exchange and interactions amongst the members on issues that are paramount to us all: business development, staff training & compensation, M&A, transition planning and exit strategies.”

DAIS Member since 2008
