Progressive® Named To InformationWeek 500 For 13th Straight Year

InformationWeek magazine has named Progressive car insurance to its annual list of the country’s most innovative users of business technology. Progressive won the spot on the InformationWeek 500 for its multi-product quoting application, which allows customers to bundle a Progressive auto quote with a partner’s residency (homeowners, condo or renters) insurance quote. Progressive has made the list every year for the last 13 years and is ranked among the top 100 for 2012.

“Here at Progressive we’re always working to be as innovative as possible, this is another example of that by offering customers an easier and more convenient way to bundle their residency and auto policies,” said Ray Voelker, Progressive’s chief information officer. “With multi-product quoting, the number of Progressive customers that bundle a residency product with their auto has increased more than fourfold.”

Multi-product quoting allows customers to save money due to a multi-policy discount and also provides customer retention benefits for Progressive. With a uniformly branded application that provides a seamless user experience, this product makes it easier for new customers to bundle their home and auto policies.
