Advanced Professionals Serves Up New Products to Help Producers Grow and Maintain Their Business

SEATTLE – As the industry-leading wholesale benefits practice for small-group employee healthcare benefits, Advanced Professionals Insurance & Benefit Solutions is introducing a new program to help its partner producers and their small to medium-sized businesses grow and succeed.

Through the unique AP Connect producer platform, Advanced Professionals’ partner producers now have access to three new products and services designed to give them a competitive edge.

“We have vetted and partnered with the best product vendors to provide producers with three of their most requested products,” said Keith VanderZanden, Executive Vice President at Advanced Professionals. “More importantly, we have created exclusive programs with each vendor to ensure our partner producers are getting the best pricing and service each has to offer.”

In its ongoing effort to support its partner producers, Advanced Professionals will continue to add programs and services, all of which are available only to its accredited producers. The new programs include:
