IDP (Wyncote, Pa.) has released InsuraSphere Mobile, a new mobile application designed to extend the accessibility and functionality of its flagship InsuraSphere P&C core administrative suite.
“The demand for increased accessibility and greater opportunities for self-service make the move to mobile necessary and inevitable,” comments Joe Friend, senior VP, IDP. “InsuraSphere Mobile brings mobile capabilities to insurers while allowing each individual company to maintain their unique brand identity.”
InsuraSphere Mobile extends existing self-service functionality available with IDP’s InsuredXpress portal, including bill payment, view and print policy documents and check the status of a claim. Designed to work with IDP’s InsuredXpress portal, InsuraSphere Mobile is vendor agnostic and integrates seamlessly with not only IDP’s InsuraSphere, but any policy administration, claims and billing system, to offer rapid, affordable mobile access to insurers of all sizes, according to IDP.
IDP offers InsuraSphere Mobile on both Android and iOS platforms through Google Play and the iTunes Store for use on smartphones and tablets. Functionality provided through InsuraSphere includes the following:
- Viewing and printing of policy documents by insureds
- Secure bill payment options
- Additional access to declaration pages, electronic ID Cards, and claim status
- Easy navigation with self-registration with the ability to log into all policies/accounts
- The extension of insurer-specific branding
The vendor reports that future releases of InsuraSphere Mobile will focus on including the ability to start a claim or submit first notice of loss (FNOL) with ease.
