How Driver Record Insight (DRI) Addresses 5 Major Pain Points for Auto Insurance Agencies

Navigating the complexities of auto insurance quoting can be challenging for agencies, especially when it comes to accurately assessing risk and providing competitive quotes.

Inaccurate Auto Insurance Quotes Lead to Unhappy Customers and Lower Profitability

In the competitive landscape of auto insurance, accurate data and actionable insights are crucial for success. However, inaccurate quoting from the beginning can significantly impact customer satisfaction and agency profitability. Thirty percent or more of prospects never make it through the sales funnel, and another third is uprated after the initial quote, leading to lost business and damaged loyalty. A major culprit of inaccurate rating are unreported violations, which can lead to a 10-20% jump in premium after an MVR is ordered. It’s no surprise that agents are experiencing quote abandonment and a negative customer experience.

How to Quote Auto Insurance Accurately Without an MVR

Enter Driver Record Insight (DRI), a game-changer for insurance agencies.
