ITC for Carriers: Bind Online
A large number of consumers go online to get more than one auto insurance quote. comScore also reports an increase in consumers who want to buy their policies
online. ITC’s data reinforces these studies.
We know how to get an online prospect through a quote process. It involves our areas of expertise: insurance website design, agency marketing, and comparative
rating. We wanted to help our agents take part in this online trend and capture market share. So, we developed a bind online process for agents who use TurboRater
What is TurboRater for Websites?
TurboRater for Websites is our online consumer portal that allows agents to represent all their carriers on their insurance agency website. TurboRater for
