Online services are being rolled out in phases.The first phase was implemented on May 29, 2017 and the second on January 29, 2018. The third phase is scheduled for implementation late fall 2018 with the fourth phase scheduled for implementation by the end of 2019.

Through their iAGCO account, customers are able to manage their applications and view the status of their files electronically.
