If you can believe it, we are already at the end of November! It will be the holiday season before you know it. We want to take the time to appreciate Thanksgiving and the festivities surrounding it. After all, what’s not to love? A holiday where families gather together and enjoy a delicious meal. Whether you eat out at a restaurant or make your spread from scratch, there are countless iconic dishes to enjoy.

When you construct your perfect plate on Thanksgiving, what do you include? ImageSoft’s President, Crystal Iverson, described her ideal Thanksgiving feast as follows:  

Appetizers: “Baked Brie with Jam – It’s my favorite app, and also my favorite thing to bring to parties. It’s easy, delicious, and looks fancy!”

Main Course: “I am mostly traditional – I really only want a few things at Thanksgiving – Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, a few pieces of juicy turkey (both dark and white meat), and a warm dinner roll with butter.”

Dessert: “Pumpkin pie with whipped cream. My absolute favorite.”

That sounds like a delicious meal, but your ideal plate is likely a bit different. Perhaps you are a vegetarian and skip the turkey. Maybe you want to swap out the brussel sprouts for cranberry sauce. That’s one of our favorite things about Thanksgiving – you are presented with a table of choices so that you get exactly what you want and nothing you don’t. Everyone has different needs and wants, and we believe that should always be respected.

Much like the impressive buffet at Thanksgiving, you can pick and choose which digital solutions you would like to implement for your business. What’s perfect for you can be far from ideal for other companies and that is completely okay. When you use a component model, you can work with specific vendors on specific solutions that you feel best satisfy your hunger for change. For insurance companies, the buffet tends to have a few staples to choose from: digital workflows, back office management, and accounting solutions. The good news is that some vendors like ImageSoft bring more unique offerings to the party. Specifically, we believe fully in the component model, offering services individually rather than in a predetermined package.  

Let’s go back to Thanksgiving for a moment: you load up your plate with all the foods that tempt you, only to find out you aren’t the biggest fan of Aunt Judith’s bread stuffing. You wouldn’t throw away the entire plate just because one item didn’t meet your expectations, right? Of course not! You would just get rid of the stuffing and replace it with another option. This principle can be applied to the component model too. Many companies offer entire packages of solutions that must be purchased together. You might love nearly all of what you’re getting, but there’s that one solution that is as disappointing as Aunt Judith’s dish.  With the component model, you are hand-picking every solution, and you can mix and match to find your ideal fit. If something’s not working, you can try again without losing the products you genuinely love!

In addition to letting you choose by components, ImageSoft also gives you more choices than what’s standard. We don’t come to Thanksgiving with mashed potatoes, we bring sweet potato casserole, handmade cookies, and imported cheeses. For insurance companies, those equate to Online Dispute Resolution, Robotic Process Automation, and Electronic Signatures. If you want to try any of the new Thanksgiving additions, you can without signing on to any package, bundle, or monopolized contract. 

If you prefer building your own plate at Thanksgiving, because you’re picky about what you like, then you will enjoy the structure of the component model. Insurers can work with multiple vendors, mixing and matching solutions to meet their needs. At the end of the day, your “plate” will be piled high with your favorites, and whatever you don’t enjoy is left on the buffet table for others to take.

We hope you have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the time with your family and friends. Build your ideal plate, chow down, and enjoy the satisfaction that comes with getting exactly what you want and need.
