Apple Podcasts Rate and Review for Spot On Insurance

Patrick Zerarka is the Founder & CEO of EzyTise, a company that provides automation software with a particular focus on small businesses and sales organizations. Contrary to most automation software, their goal isn’t to replace the human aspect of your service, but to automate otherwise mundane or repetitive tasks such as checking email for leads. Patrick has over 20 years of experience managing small business operations and holding executive positions within independent insurance agencies. He specializes in software development, strategy optimization, and lead nurturing.

Patrick joins us to discuss how EzyTise provides seamless automation without removing the human aspect of your business. He shares what it was like growing up in France and the transition he made when he moved to the United States. He explains the importance of automation when scaling a business and why it’s not the end-all, be-all solution to your organization’s process troubles. Patrick also describes the difficulty of being a new brand in an already large industry and why he believes most CRMs are outdated.
