Online Lead Generation Start-Up Releases Innovative Platform for Consumers to Reach National Car Insurance Carriers and Local Agents. The Platform Allows Consumers to Easily Receive Free Car Insurance Quotes from Companies that Fit their Profile.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 17, 2010
Online consumers looking for an efficient way to save money and find the right Car Insurance coverage have grown tired of the endless stream of unwanted phone calls and emails from national carriers and local agents. Many Auto Insurance comparison shopping sites leave customers feeling frustrated and wishing they had never submitted their contact information.
CoverHound.com offers many of the same benefits of other Car Insurance comparison platforms, but without the headaches. Visitors to CoverHound's website are greeted with a straightforward form that takes just 1-2 minutes to fill out. CoverHound only asks the important questions to better understand each customer’s unique needs and preferences. CoverHound doesn’t collect personal contact information such as email address or phone number.
Using a proprietary algorithm, CoverHound then matches consumers to a short list of Carriers and Local agents. Unlike other comparison engines, CoverHound.com’s customers are in full control of the shopping process; they have the option to call the carrier or agent, or to visit their website to get a free, no-obligation Car Insurance quote.
Founded by Basil Enan, an insurance lead generation veteran, CoverHound makes the process of finding the right Car Insurance policy at the best price faster, friendlier, and more effective than ever before. When asked why he started CoverHound, Enan said, "While working in the traditional lead generation space, I became frustrated with the consistent negative feedback I received with the way we connected people looking for car insurance with carriers and agents. Shoppers were annoyed that their personal info was sold up to 8 times and lead buyers were tired of paying for the same leads that didn’t close. I thought – there has to be a better way. CoverHound puts car insurance shoppers in the driver’s seat and makes it easy for them to connect with top-notch companies and local agents who can help make sure that they get the financial protection they need.”
CoverHound’s headquarters are located in the SOMA neighborhood of San Francisco, a hotbed for technology start-ups looking to improve the online shopping experience. CoverHound is using that approach to simplify the process of finding Car Insurance companies on the web.
CoverHound’s service is available nationwide. The company has already added some of the country’s largest Insurance providers to its platform and is in the process of expanding further into the local agent market.
