TORONTO – March 23, 2015. Keal Technology, innovators in broker solutions, announced today that ingenie Canada Inc., an insurance telematics brand for young drivers, have selected Keal’s SIG solution to support their newly launched online quote and buy system.
ingenie allows young drivers to be treated as individuals by use of its Smartbox telematics technology, which builds a picture of how they really drive. Customers are given a 10% up-front saving when they buy insurance with ingenie, and the opportunity to earn up to an extra 25% Good Driving Discount. Billing is reviewed three times each year, which means customers can start saving after just three months. Additionally, they receive regular driving feedback online or via their mobile app to help them improve.
Keal¹s SIG solution was chosen by ingenie as their Broker Management System. Working with ingenie¹s real time quote and buy website, SIG works behind the scenes to allow customers to gain a quote and then bind the policy online, capturing all of the customer information for the brokerage records. Payment can be taken via a number of methods, including credit card. SIG then integrates with Aviva¹s systems to send the policy information to them, which returns a policy number in real time into SIG.
Lorie Phair, CEO of ingenie Canada Inc., speaks to their decision to choose Keal, “The new ingenie quote system is the first to give young drivers the flexibility to get an insurance quote, check how much they could save by driving well, and then complete their purchase online. We chose Keal because they are the only vendor that would be able to quickly create the integration between prospects to insurer with the support and control of the brokerage.”
Pat Durepos, President of Keal, states: “This solution is a great example of what e-brokers require in 2015. Consumers want to transact electronically from any device, 24/7 and 365 days a year. They also want to do this under the comfort of their trusted advisor Broker. This solution makes this a reality.”
Keal’s ability to respond to their Broker-Partners’ changing needs opens the door to future development projects and innovations that will allow their clients to remain relevant in an ever-changing marketplace.
