Progressive Launches HomeQuote Explorer
Groundbreaking Online Tool Provides Multiple Home Insurance Quotes in a Fraction of the Time
MAYFIELD VILLAGE, Ohio — July 24, 2017 — Progressive (NYSE: PGR) is announcing a groundbreaking tool called HomeQuote Explorer. This new online platform allows homeowners to quickly and easily compare home insurance quotes from multiple carriers to find the best option to protect their homes.
"This might sound familiar, because it's the formula we used to put the power of comparison shopping in the hands of auto insurance customers in 1996," said Progressive CEO, Tricia Griffith. "We think HomeQuote Explorer will compel a lot of homeowners to take a few minutes to make sure they're getting the right coverage at the right rate."
"Because each home is so unique, getting a home quote used to take a long time," adds Customer Acquisition Leader, Dan Witalec. "With Progressive's HomeQuote Explorer, most people can get multiple, complete and accurate, quotes in 15 minutes or less."
"It does this by pulling in publicly available information on a property automatically to save the homeowner time, and has an easy-to-use series of prompts to help the user enter other required information."
"For example," adds Witalec, "many people don't know whether they have a gable, mansard, hip or gambrel roof. But HomeQuote Explorer uses photos of roof types to help homeowners quickly identify what they have. We wanted to make this easy."
"This platform will keep getting smarter, as we learn more and continue to add new features to make it even easier to get home insurance quotes online," Witalec adds.
The Progressive Group of Insurance Companies makes it easy to understand, buy and use auto insurance. Progressive offers choices so consumers can reach it whenever, wherever and however it's most convenient — online at progressive.com, by phone at 1-800-PROGRESSIVE, on a mobile device or in-person with a local agent.
