Intouch Spring 2019 - Getting smarter by the minute
What do driverless cars and legal indemnities have in common? A little more than you think. Take a look at the latest improvement that our online service, Elite, has undergone, and see if you think we’re on the right road.
Driverless cars have been allegedly on their way for many years but it seems ever more likely that motorists will be turning to this phenomenon in the next few years as technology becomes more flexible and reliable.
It’s not a totally dissimilar picture in the world of legal indemnities, with online quotation systems capable of becoming more intuitive, and growing numbers of solicitors ready to take advantage of the improved functionality on offer.
Not everyone is in the same boat though. Most legal indemnity quotation sites are still restricted to providing a fairly simple quote, based on the minimal information supplied by the solicitor. Anything a little out of the ordinary and you have to call or email the insurer for a quote.
Not so with Elite. With over 400 products, the ability to upload documents and email us directly from the system, and a sophisticated referral system, just about anything can be handled online.
And now, we’ve improved it still further. We recognised that sometimes there are aspects of a case that can’t be covered by our standard questions.
So when there are mitigating circumstances that you feel may warrant a reduction in our quoted premium, you can let us know by jotting down a few details on the site, sending them through to us, and we’ll get back to you in minutes.
You’ll find our Lower Risk Discount facility on the Quote Summary page and, to tell us why the risk deserves a discount, simply click the ‘Refer’ button and outline the details, attaching any supporting documentation. Our specialist underwriters will take a look and get back to you within just 15 minutes.
Like the cars of tomorrow, Elite still needs someone to steer the quote, but it can take you in directions that simply weren’t possible five years ago.
For more information on our lower risk discount, contact our underwriters on 01603 617617, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
