Texas Bill Supports Mobile Insurance Apps

Texas is going to be the latest state to adopt using mobile insurance apps for proof of insurance for auto policies. According to the dallasmorningnews.com a bill is in the Texas legislature which will make it legal for policyholders to use their phone to display a digital Auto Insurance ID card when requested by an officer. This digital auto insurance ID card will most likely reside on a smartphone capable of displaying the card.

Many states already have a law allowing the presentation of digital proof of insurance. Only one state, NY, makes sure ID cards have a bar-code which will authenticate the auto id card digitally. Most states aren't as sophisticated as NY in their implementation of standardized auto insurance id cards. Simply showing a PDF of the auto id card digitally is enough. Most policies and auto id cards already are delivered in a pdf file, which is the industry standard for documents.

The benefits of going to a mobile insurance delivery platform are far reaching, and include most of the key players in the insurance transaction. Carriers save money by not having to print and mail copies of the cards. Agents can provide a level of self service through agency mobile apps to their clients, exposing an untapped channel into the customer relationship. Policyholders will get convenience and cheaper costs for insurance. Law enforcement officers can validate the insurance via a simple insurance verification app (We are currently developing).

The mobile trend is upon us, and insurance companies and agencies are creating mobile strategies. These strategies will all incorporate some type of mobile self service for the policyholder. Many already have mobile enabled websites, but are realizing that isn't enough. They are going to need a mobile insurance delivery platform, capable of delivering documents and taking payments.

Always an entrepreneur I have been in business for myself since 8th grade when I sold candy out of my briefcase after school. During college I ran a successful website design company which focused on mobile and email delivery of entertainment. After releasing mobile and email street team projects with music icons such as U2 and Blues Traveler, I took my talents to the fast paced world of liquor advertising. After numerous successful high end campaigns for household brands like, Absolut, Crown Royal, and Jack Daniels, I was presented the opportunity to change paths and create a management system for a large MGA in California. True to my adventurous spirit, I moved to Orange County and dove head first into all the glitter and lights that is insurance!

Many years of creating insurance raters, management systems, and policy delivery platforms for large MGA's, finance companies, Risk Retention Groups, and Insurance Companies has given me a great look at the inner-workings of the insurance industry. Seeing the amount of software companies increase about 15,000% in the last few years I noticed how few actually understand what insurance people need. One EASY TO USE system to store and share docs and basic information about a policy. PolicySpot was born.

PolicySpot is my passion, and adding every usable feature for an insurance agent to bolster their customer service is my mission.
