iMingle Launches App for iPhone® Serving Policyholders On-the-Go(April 25, 2011)
Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) April 25, 2011
iMingle (TM) announced today the launch of a new application for iPhone, designed to provide drivers with a more convenient way to manage their auto insurance policies anytime and anywhere. The iMingle.com iPhone app is the latest tool from a company built around the needs and expectations of a techno-centric consumer.
iMingle launched in Fall 2010 with a new marketing approach for direct-to-consumer insurance aimed at what the company calls the i Generation, those consumers who expect technology and service to work together to make life easier. iMingle is also the first in the industry to offer group buying for individual policyholders with significant discounts that reward customers for two things they are already doing: using social media and buying insurance.
Available for download on the App Store, the iMingle.com iPhone App allows policyholders to:
- Access their policies 24 hours a day, seven days a week
- Make payments instantly online
- Report a claim and submit photos of the accident
- Gather witnesses and police reports
- Connect to a claim representative
- Get assistance with alternative transportation taxi, tow truck or rental car
- Update their policy contact information
- Access the iMingle Network discount link (widget to qualify for group discounts by linking to friends through social networks)
- Get a quote for Renters Insurance
Our app for iPhone is just another way we are using technology to deliver better service for our customers, said Michael Z. Stahl, iMingles vice president of marketing and operations. We understand that customers have other priorities in their days besides paying bills and managing claims after an accident. Thats why we wasted no time in developing a tool that makes the whole process of dealing with auto insurance simple, convenient and efficient, so they can get on with life.
