Many insurance companies have realized the growing need for digital integration and are now able to streamline their entire insurance process. This allows consumers to manage their policies from anywhere, at any time, without even having to change out of their pajamas! Below are just a few of the e-form tools available today:

3) Interactive Voice Response (IVR)

IVRs allow insurers to provide customers with automated service by recording messages and playing them back when called. These recordings can include information about payment options, premium rates, customer service hours, and more.

4) Online Bill Pay

Online bill pay allows consumers to make payments online through a secure connection. Payments can be made either automatically or manually.

5) Email/Text Notifications

Insurance carriers send emails or texts to notify customers of upcoming events such as renewals, claims, rate changes, and other important updates.

6) Social Media Integration

Customers love using social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to communicate with their carriers. Insurers can easily integrate these channels into their marketing efforts.
