BOCA RATON, Fla., May 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Edison Insurance Company is the first homeowner's insurance carrier in Florida to offer accurate and specific premium quotes. The company's technological breakthrough is showcased and available on their website at www.edisoninsurance.com.
"The complexity and intricacies of the Florida insurance market overwhelms many homeowners when looking to buy home insurance on their own," said Clint Strauch, Edison Insurance President and Co-Founder. "Because of this, Edison developed a system, which allows potential policyholders to obtain and customize their own insurance quote online and quickly transfer their information to a trusted and licensed agent to complete the transaction."
Edison surveyed their current policy holders and determined 85% prefer to purchase insurance from a licensed insurance agent. To maintain their high level of customer service, Edison only partners with agents who have committed to contacting the prospective policy holders within 24 hours to discuss their insurance needs.
"We've built the website to be completely user friendly, efficient and accurate. Our technology affords local insurance agencies an opportunity to connect with new customers and provides realtors with a unique tool to calculate more accurately the insurance premium portion of the mortgage," added Strauch.
Edison Insurance Company, originally headquartered in St. Petersburg, Florida, was purchased by Boca Raton-based Florida Peninsula Insurance Company (FPI) in January of 2010. The company shares the same seasoned management team and managing general agency (MGA) with Florida Peninsula Insurance Company. Edison currently has $20 million in surplus and has received a Financial Stability Rating® of A-Exceptional from Demotech.
