Esurance Earns Spot On 2011 InformationWeek 500

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Esurance, the direct-to-consumer personal car insurance company, today announced that it made this year's InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation's most innovative users of business technology.  


This was Esurance's first time on the list and was recognition of the strides the company has made in offering innovative technology, and in particular, improving the mobile experience for its customers.

"It's an honor for Esurance to be named to the 2011 InformationWeek 500. This recognition is a testament to the great work our team is doing in creating mobile device innovations that help simplify the car insurance process for customers," said Esurance Chief Information Officer Phil Swift. "Customers want more choices in how they interact with their car insurance companies, and our aim is to provide new mobile capabilities and outstanding service for them, wherever they are, and in the manner they choose."

Esurance continues to implement new mobile technology to meet the demand of consumers. The company has a dedicated mobile site and offers free apps, giving consumers the ability to manage their policies, make payments, and monitor claims. The company will soon roll out new accident and emergency services for iPhone® and Androidâ„¢ devices that will allow customers to use their mobile devices to automatically initiate the claims process once an accident is reported.

"For 23 years, the InformationWeek 500 has chronicled and honored the most innovative users of business technology," said InformationWeek Editor in Chief Rob Preston. "In this day and age, however, being innovative isn't enough. Companies and their IT organizations need to innovate faster than ever before to stay a step or two ahead of their customers, partners, and competitors. This year's ranking placed special emphasis on those high-octane business technology innovators."

InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments, and administrative practices of America's best-known companies. Top winners have included: The Vanguard Group, CME Group, Conway, National Semiconductor, Kimberly-Clark, Hilton Hotels, and Unum. The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
