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.

Sometimes people just get it, and we are proud to say Sam Castronova at ezbind.com is one of them. They have been one of our beta agents since day one. When I first approached Sam, he challenged me to get a useful agency function to the mobile insurance app. We discussed options upon options, features upon features...it seemed endless. I was thinking I was going to have to be building mobile insurance apps for the rest of my natural life. I finally wrestled him down, and we agreed on 3 simple features. Get policies and Auto ID Cards, self serve certificates, and mobile payments. If you know Sam, getting him to aqueous to just 3 features in his mobile insurance app, was a victory in itself. :)

Since his adoption, he has been selling his Contractors Insurance to the tune of 30 policies per day. Providing a self service portal to his clients has proven to be instrumental in his ability to grow his agency without having the support staff traditionally needed with contractors. 

"Additional Insureds are easy now.", says Castronova. "We used to hit a limit on the amount of quotes we could get out, but now...we just sell. All my customers loving having the mobile insurance app to get their certificates of insurance. I have even sold policies based on the fact I have a mobile app."
