Mobile Apps for Insurance

When is the last time you used the words “cool” and “insurance” in the same sentence? If you can’t recall any in your recent memory, you’re not alone. But, let’s picture this: You’ve just been in a car accident. You take out your smartphone, open your carrier’s mobile app, start the claim process with the push of a couple buttons. Then, take photos of the damage and accident scene and upload them directly to your insurance company’s website. Boom. No waiting to hear back from your insurance adjuster to begin the claim process. No setting an appointment at a later time to have pictures taken. You’ve just shaved hours, possibly days off of your claim settlement time. How cool would that be? And that’s just one of the things these mobile apps can do. Several top insurance companies have mobile app offerings. These are from some of our carriers:
