Petley-Hare Limited, an insurance brokerage with nearly 100 years of experience in Ontario’s Durham Region, announced on Monday that it has launched a new digital division called Insurance Jack, which now serves clients across the province.

“Insurance Jack was built on the premise that the insurance industry has evolved and consumers are interested in a more streamlined buying process,” the division said in a statement. [click image below to enlarge]

“Insurance Jack was built on the premise that the insurance industry has evolved and consumers are interested in a more streamlined buying process.”

Led by Adam Hare, Insurance Jack’s vice president of business development and marketing, the company aims to make buying insurance more efficient, and hassle free. By connecting consumers and insurance products, without traditional challenges, there is no delay in purchasing affordable coverage, the statement said.

Industry experts have taken notice of Insurance Jack, with Stephen Corea, director of sales and business development for Gore Mutual, saying that “quoting engines are a dime-a-dozen and many just don’t get it right. The user experience is complicated, lengthy and unreliable for both the broker and the consumer. When it comes to Insurance Jack, the right choices have been made to just ‘make it easy.’”

Randy Carrol, a strategic advisor for ClientDesk, is excited about how Insurance Jack goes beyond providing quotes. “They have made the quoting process quick and easy to use, but also realize there is more to insurance than just getting a quote. Insurance Jack provides their policyholders with online access to request and submit updates to their policy information in a painless way,” he said in the statement. [click image below to enlarge]

Millenials, who will comprise 46% of the workforce within 10 years, want to communicate digitally at their convenience, said David Hare, president of Petley-Hare Limited

Dave Hare, president of Petley-Hare Limited, has watched the insurance industry evolve over the years, with millennials now taking a different approach to shopping for coverage. “While our traditional customers may still want a high touch relationship with their broker, millennials, who will comprise 46% of the workforce within 10 years, want to communicate digitally at their convenience,” Hare said.

Insurance Jack provides quotes from Intact Insurance, Echelon General Insurance Company, Aviva, Northbridge Insurance, Jevco, Coachman Insurance Company, Gore Mutual and The Guarantee. More information is available online at www.insurancejack.com or by calling 1-888-268-2408.
