AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Local insurance agents determined to get in front of prospects before the competition can now access and secure new leads using their cell phones, thanks to the "insurestation™" mobile app, which is available free-of-charge to independent agents who write business for Windhaven® Insurance.
The insurestation™ mobile app generates leads from an online pool of prospects who are searching the internet to purchase auto insurance. When these shoppers have questions about insurance terms or coverages, they often want to speak to a qualified industry professional who can help them; so, the app rings the cell phones of independent agents who are logged into the mobile app and are "available" for leads. The first agent to answer the phone is awarded the lead.
"Agents are great at selling – and they are used to selling over the phone," said Jimmy Whited, CEO of Windhaven® Insurance and The Hearth® Insurance Group. "The new mobile app simplifies the process by connecting our local independent agents to insurance shoppers who are essentially raising their hands to be helped with buying an auto insurance policy. The insurestation™ mobile app fits who we are. Because we only write through independent agents, insurestation™ ensures they have the most advanced technology to succeed."
ClutchAnalytics®, a Texas-based software company, developed the insurestation™ app for Windhaven. Local agents gain eligibility to the app when they become an independent producer for Windhaven.
"What's even better is local agents who win free leads on the insurestation™ mobile app also receive the consumer's contact information stored in the insurestation™ platform, an online portal agents use every day for all of their Windhaven® business," said Jorge Garcia, CTO at ClutchAnalytics®, a leader in adapting insurtech to provide faster service and improved communication between agents and customers.
Eventually, phone leads will be available for local agents who can write homeowners insurance for The Hearth® Insurance Group.
