Creation of a demand for a company's products, its distribution, and services for customers who purchase that product. Actuarial research and development, underwriting efficiency, and claim payment promptness is of little value if no one is willing to purchase insurance products. Agency and marketing departments are the focus of all sales activity within an insurance company, and touch every aspect of a company by generating premium income for securities, real estate, and mortgage investments; sales for review by the underwriting department and their issuance by policyholder services; need for data storage and retrieval by the company's data processing center; legal analysis and decisions by the law department; and need for corporate planning.
