Why Insurance agencies need a mobile app



Insurance companies require a customer oriented approach that guarantees quick response to rapidly changing life conditions. Competition among insurance companies is intense so they must be fully equipped with modern technologies to remain competitive. Mobile apps are a must-have means to not only show contact information, but also involve clients in the complete insurance process allowing them to calculate insurance rates, order quotes and get feedback quickly.
In today’s mobile age, virtually every industry is leveraging mobile technologies to expand self-service channels and improve those already in place. The insurance industry is no exception. Today, customers can access their policies, file claims, pay bills and get quotes – all with the convenience of using a smartphone or a tablet. However, insurers are only just beginning to capitalize on the full value that mobile solutions can deliver. There are new options for solutions that go beyond just simple transactions. It is now possible to improve top and bottom line growth, and transform both the customer experience and business processes across the entire value chain, by simply changing the way information is captured and utilized.
With over 1 billion smartphones and tablets in use by customers, employees, partners and agents, Insurance Agency customers can now:
  • Ask for quotes anytime from anywhere
