GloveBox, provider of a mobile app that gives consumers access to insurance documents, has announced a partnership Safeco Insurance (Seattle; a Liberty Mutual Company). The companies have committed to a working relationship whereby GloveBox will roll out initiatives for Safeco’s policy holders. During a second phase of development, the companies will each exchange proprietary information with the objective of improving policyholder experience, the GloveBox statement says.
“The ability to work with such a highly touted carrier on this next stage of our evolution will ensure that we are maximizing the ease and clarity for the consumer,” comments Ryan Mathisen, CEO, GloveBox.
“Not only will this provide an expedited service for Safeco clients, but it will demonstrate the trust that we are seeking with other carriers in the P&C market.”
The second phase rollout will include a portal for features such as a claims concierge and bill pay, according to GloveBox. Policyholders will be able to connect to Safeco, access their insurance documents, have a seamless avenue to pay their bill, and help expedite the claims process, the vendor says. The company’s have not set a date for the release.
Conversations with Other Major Brands
With the Safeco initiative underway, GloveBox says it is now engaging in conversations with other major brands.
“This is all in hopes of maximizing the potential of such a uniquely aggregated technology that has never been seen before,” adds Mathisen. “Our initial carriers are going to set the stage on what this innovation should look and feel like.”
