St. Paul Travelers’ Quick Quote

July 4, 2006

St. Paul Travelers launched “Quick Quote,” an online rating tool that provides quoting and binding capabilities for standalone equipment breakdown insurance.

It provides new business equipment breakdown coverage quotes for small-to-medium-sized enterprises having fewer than 10 locations and individual location values of up to $25 million.

While equipment breakdown insurance is typically sold as part of a comprehensive property coverage package, there are times when a business requires a standalone EB policy. Quick Quote allows fast, convenient and simple access to St. Paul Travelers’ comprehensive standalone EB policy, EnergyMax21.

InsWeb launched a new agent lead generation program called AgentInsider. It provides leads generated by consumers who have visited the InsWeb Web site in search of an insurance quote and assistance from local agents. Comprehensive consumer data is delivered to agents in real-time. InsWeb plans to expand their local agent lead program to include life, health and other lines of insurance in future generations of AgentInsider.
