ILLUSTRATE INC & FORESTERS ANNOUNCE RELEASE OF FORESTERS MOBILE QUOTES
TORONTO, April 20, 2011 – illustrate inc, a leading developer of point-of-sale technology solutions for the North American life insurance industry, and Foresters™, a life insurance provider committed to the well-being of families, have partnered to create Foresters Mobile Quotes, a new mobile application for use with selected Term and Whole Life products.
Designed to run on any web-enabled smartphone, Foresters Mobile Quotes allows agents to quickly and easily run life insurance quotes on their smartphone, making it an ideal tool to use in one-on-one meetings with clients.
“We live in a very mobile and often fast-paced society,” said Larry Noyes, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, U.S. Division with Foresters. “As agents increasingly rely on their mobile devices we wanted to provide ours with the convenience of mobile quotes.”
Agents simply enter their client’s age, gender, smoker class, and desired amount of life insurance, and Foresters Mobile Quotes instantly calculates the monthly and annual premiums. The app also provides a choice of solutions to consider and allows the results to be emailed instantly to the client. Alternatively, the app can solve for how much life insurance could be purchased given a client’s desired monthly premium.
Foresters Mobile Quotes provides results for LifeFirst™, a level term insurance product with a suite of feature-rich riders, and PlanRight™, a series of whole life insurance products designed to help cover final expenses.
Foresters Mobile Quotes will run on any smartphone, including the iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android devices.
