For Immediate Release
Kent & Essex Mutual Insurance Company (K&E) launches their Online Quoting Solution to drive Digital Consumers to their Broker Partners using Mutual Concept Computer Group Inc.’s (MCCG) Online Quoting Solution (OQS).
Chatham, Ontario – November 1, 2016 – Kent & Essex Mutual Insurance Company introduces their online quoting experience to support their Broker Distribution Channel using Mutual Concept Computer Group’s (MCCG) Online Quoting Solution (OQS). This solution, SwiftProtect, provides a complete online quoting tool for personal automobile and personal property products and leverages Kent & Essex’s current underwriting and rating rules contained within their Insurance Business Solution (IBS®) implementation. This enhances Kent & Essex’s existing presence on the web by introducing an easy method for consumers to digitally initiate the sales process with their broker partner of choice. It further provides a quick and easy quoting solution for Kent & Essex’s broker partners and is the first in a series of steps that Kent & Essex is taking to support their broker partners in the ‘experience economy’.
“Consumers are changing the way they initiate their purchasing approach, and it is fundamental that we support our brokers by providing growth opportunities using online methods. Generating a price is the easy part. Our broker partners are essential to ensuring policyholders have the proper information and guidance on risk exposure and coverage. SwiftProtect will allow current and future policyholders to price their insurance needs for auto, home, tenant or condo in seconds and then connect with an independent broker of their choice. We are extremely pleased by the level of quality and the short implementation time frames we had on this project. The MCCG team delivered on their promises and we continue to be a strong partner with MCCG on other key projects that we believe will deliver enhanced experiences for our policyholders, our broker partners and our team. This is just the first step in a series that we are taking to transform our operations into that of a Digital Insurer.”, stated Kevin Konecny, President & CEO of Kent & Essex Mutual Insurance Company.
“Kent & Essex has a strong team and a progressive outlook on insurance innovation. We’ve enjoyed a long history of support from K&E and are excited to continue to work with them on other projects. They have a great understanding of the client / broker relationship and the balance that is required between technology and relationships in order to fully provide the proper consumer experience. We were thrilled to deliver this project on time and within budget. As such, we do believe we will see a number of our clients adopt the OQS solution allowing them to further leverage the power of their current IBS® implementation.”, said Jon Perry, Vice President – Client Relations of MCCG.
