Differentiating Factors…What makes Quick Life Unique?

Quick Life is the best life insurance selling and processing solution
in the land.

• All programs are private labeled to give look and feel of an in house service.

• Trusted Advisor Platform to allow agent initiated sales in a face to
face or telephone consultative sales environment.

• Trusted Advisor Platform allows two ways to submit the cases

1. Quick Assist – This allows the advisor to identify those interested
in receiving information on rates and how to obtain the best policy on
the market. Quick Life offers a life insurance buying service to match
individuals with the best policy for their unique set of
2. Electronic Application – This allows advisors to give quick and
accurate rates, select policies from a list of what the market has to
offer, complete the application and submit it without obtaining
signatures or bothering with the details of the paramed exam.

• Consumer Interface - the consumer interface allows users to shop for
the best policy available based on their unique set of circumstances.

Differentiating Factors…What makes Quick Life Unique?

• Quick Life is a multi-carrier platform. Offering the "best of class"
carriers in the term life insurance marketplace, a multi-carrier
platform reduces your liability as it relates to suitability and
offering the client the best product for their needs.

• The financial model is Revenue Share. No fees or out of pocket
expenses for processing before revenue is generated.

• Marketing Support. Quick Life has recently launched its Playbook
called, "How to Win at Quick Life." It is a compilation of best
practices including sample letters, emails, professionally designed
ads, sales contests, tracking mechanisms and more. We will share,
guide and administer a "Flight Plan" we create together.

• The Quick Assist. With Quick Life an advisor can identify a
candidate for life insurance, engage that candidate with the life
insurance experts at Quick Life and be done. No rate classification
questions from the client, no awkward medical questions to ask and no
paperwork to handle. Send the client to your life insurance experts
and the Financial Advisor is done.

• Quick Life offers the combination of an Advisor portal and a full
service consumer interface.

• Quick Life focuses on determining accurate rates up front to ensure
higher placement ratios and a better customer experience.

• Electronic Applications make data entry faster and more accurate.
This reduces issues in underwriting and administration set up on each
case which makes the entire process faster.

• Quick Life offers the best of both worlds when it comes to quickly
issued, simplified life insurance products and the lowest cost, fully
underwritten ones. Both are good; alone each ignores a segment of the
marketplace and together they make a complete package that allows you
to offers the clients the best product for their individual leads.

• Extreme Case management:
o Case Management, The Old Way = If additional information/forms are
needed, the carrier posts the case status on their website. The Agent
logs into the carriers' website to check the case status each week (at
best) and proceeds with chasing the client for the required signatures
or forms.
o Extreme Case Management, The Quick Life Way = After the carrier
flags the case status, the information is automatically streamed into
the Quick Life system (in real time) and our team can immediately
begin chasing the client. The Agent is not bothered with this issue.

The Quick Life Center is a joint venture among successful
organizations in the insurance industry. The objective is to provide
the very best platform for selling and processing life insurance.

500,000 clients since its founding in 1988, InsuranceOnly is licensed

four years.

The Quick Life Center brings together five of the main ingredients
needed to be successful in this business.
• Technology – Quick Life uses state of the art technology to process
today's fully underwritten business as efficiently as any organization
in the world. In addition, we have the technology to gather third
party health information and develop true "Straight Through Processes"
with life insurance carriers. This process will revolutionize how life
insurance is sold to the vast middle market.

• Process – we manage it daily…like animals. It's all about the
process and refining and streamlining that process as technology

• Management – Experience and Accountability. Managers of this
operation have been working in this niche for more than 10 years. They
have product, process, system and IT expertise; call center operations
experience and the ability to manage people.

• Passion – in this case, the passion to serve families with an easier
way to buy life insurance.

• Capital – The company is financially sound.

The process of quoting, applying and issuing affordable term life
insurance as quickly as possible using fully underwritten and now
simplified issue products is what Quick Life is all about.
