The Dominion has launched a tablet version of its commercial insurance quoting portal for brokers, available for the iPad and BlackBerry Playbook.
E-CLIPS is the insurer's quoting portal for small-to-medium sized businesses. The mobile portal now allows brokers to provide quotes and do business from anywhere with an internet connection, aiming to reduce customer wait times and streamline the quote process.
“This new portal, in conjunction with our co-branded mobile app released in 2012, demonstrates our commitment to bringing our brokers into the mobile space” Shelagh Paul, vice president of corporate communications at The Dominion noted.
“We know agility is important for our broker force, and we’re working to ensure our technology supports them. The Dominion believes consumers are best served by independent brokers, and we want to leverage their strengths to compete with the direct channel.”
The company says that mobile technology has consistently been identified as an area where independent brokers, and the company’s whose products they sell, have been surpassed by direct writers.
