I highly recommend using Angela Adams Consulting. They thoroughly prepared us for our conversion to AMS360 from the initial set up to and including all facets of client services. Our people felt much more at ease with the change because of Angela and her staff.”

Mark S. Gilbert, CIC Gilbert Insurance, Reading, MA

A big THANK YOU for the instruction you provided to our staff! You gave us some great tools and resources! I want to personally thank you for your recommendations for improved workflow. You have willingly given tips, valuable resources, and time to address my numerous questions! We are very fortunate that we encountered someone with your experience, your quick understanding, and your people skills to partner with us! Your time here was extremely valuable to our agency and we are deeply appreciative!”

Kelly Winslow, CPCU Whorton Insurance Services, Austin, TX

Angela Adams works closely with one of my CSRs to get checks cut, expenses logged, income reported, policy information reported, corrected and everything else done proficiently and always perfectly. In short, I don’t know what I would do without my account manager at Angela Adams. Even my CPA remarks on how clean our books are, which saves me time and money with him at year end. If you are looking for a competent contractor that you can trust with your agency’s books I strongly recommend that you work with Angela Adams.”

Clifford C. Hansen Insurance of the San Juans, Telluride, CO

Hiring Angela Adams Consulting has been one of best decisions we have made for our agency since going with AMS360. Our consultant, Renee Marshall, has done an outstanding job in assessing and helping us with utilization and best practices. Renee has become a member of our agency family, truly exemplifying a genuine caring for us to be the best agency possible. I highly recommend the Angela Adams Group.”

Richard H. Pardue S.S. Nesbitt & Co., Inc., Birmingham, AL

Angela Adams Consulting Services transferred all the account from one management system to AMS360 and did a great job for my agency. I do not know what I would have done with out their help. They did it is a very timely manner and it was well worth having them do it for what it cost me.”

Don L. Burke Lake Insurance Agency, Laverne, OK

I hired Angela to train the agency that converted to 360 from Applied and to come into our agency and answer the many questions that the staff had on workflow. It was money well spent. She did an excellent job with the new agency and made me and the staff very happy by showing us simple shortcuts and little tricks to make our workflow much easier.”

Cheryl D. Huff Chastain & Associates Insurance Agency, Inc., Athens, GA

THANK YOU for allowing us to have Tammy on our side. Tammy has helped me learn accounting in a matter of two months and she did not make me feel uncomfortable asking her, what I call “stupid questions.” She would take the time and explain each piece so that I could move forward. I not only consider Tammy an amazing consultant but a friend as well.”

Letha O’Neil Wiseman Herbie Wiles Insurance Agency, St. Augustine, FL

Your services were extremely helpful in our transition from AfW to AMS360. Angela Adams Consulting made a big difference in our migration. They simplified the many back office options with AMS360. They also helped with efficient workflows. There are many alternatives and decisions to be made in the migration process, but Angela Adams Consulting simplified these for us and we were able to make good decisions in a timely manner through their guidance.”

Vance Stine Sifford-Stine Insurance, Clover, SC

Renee did a terrific job of taking care of us as we transitioned from Back-end scanning (with CBD) to Front-end scanning (with Doc360). As you know, this conversion is a work-in-progress, but our staff felt very comfortable as we are “live” with our new scanning procedures. A great deal of that comfort is attributed to Renee’s Webinars and her sideline coaching of our implementation staff. She went above and beyond!”

Shawn K. Morrisey The Reilly Company, Leavenworth, KS

Angela Adams is full of knowledge and tips for AMS360 users. She came to our agency and hit the ground running. Our people and our agency has already seen the benefits of her 3 day visit. We can’t wait to have her back!!”

Anna Byers J.S. Ward and Son, Roswell, NM

I truly believe that the reason our agency operates so smoothly now on the AMS system is because of the training, follow-up and continued involvement of Angela. Simply put, Angela is the best, and I am glad we found her. Besides her computer and AMS knowledge, she is very sharp in insurance and has been a big help to me many times in coverage and market issues. With all that said, now let me tell you the most important part of my relationship with Angela- she is a good friend who always does the very best to help me out when I call her. Thanks Angela!”

Joe B. Morton Ripley Insurance Agency, Ripley, MS

If you are looking for help from training new employees, getting up to speed on new features of AMS360 or processing help, Angela and her team are the go to people. With their years of experience and knowledge of what you do every day gives it that personal touch which gives you piece of mind knowing you will get great results.”

Kevin Dickmann TWIW Ventura, CA

Our staff attending the AMS conventions have always enjoyed learning from you and your associates. I felt we needed to improve the efficiencies in our Commercial Dept and had Cathy Biby,from your team, in our office for a 2 day visit. Her time spent with us is paying dividends and while we have some more work to do it was tremendous to have her expertise front and center. After she helps design some needed forms we fully intend to have her back with us on an annual basis whether by phone or in person. The ROI is quite evident.”
