Assurant Employee Benefits Introduces Updated Benefit Tools Mobile App

KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Have you ever gone to the dentist and forgotten your dental insurance card? Thanks to Assurant Employee Benefits' updated Benefit Tools mobile app, you'll never forget your card again. The newly redesigned app allows you to view the card on the screen of your smartphone, as well as print, fax or email it to your dentist.

The updated mobile application, now available at no cost to iPhone® and Androidâ„¢ users, provides consumers with additional capabilities. The app features improved Find-a-Dentist and Find-an-Eye Doctor functionality. Relying on Google Maps technology, the app connects smartphone users with dentists and eye doctors either close to their current location or in their zip code of choice. Users also can link easily to the Assurant Employee Benefits website to purchase individual dental plans, if available in their state.

"This update includes many enhancements and we will continue to look for opportunities to make our customers lives easier through technology whether they're at home, at work or on the go," said Karla Schacht, senior vice president of information technology, chief information officer and chief security officer. "Assurant Employee Benefits listens closely to consumers, employers, brokers and providers to determine how technology can make their interactions with us simpler and more meaningful."

The updated app also allows customers to connect with Assurant Employee Benefits via Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and YouTube. In addition, they can connect with customer advocacy or Assurant Employee Benefits' technical support via phone or email with a simple touch of the finger.
