The Industry Leader In Internet Driven Insurance Lead Generation And Automated Quotation Response Technology

About InsuranceQuotes

InsuranceQuotes is a financial services portal offering a powerful facility that enables consumers and Insurance Service providers to interact using the power of the Internet.

Consumers are now able to request and accept quotations from specialised Insurance Brokers and Financial Service Providers with a single submission via the InsuranceQuotes Internet web site.

Broker partners can now utilize the IQ technology at a fraction of the cost of establishing their own facility.

The Internet is fast becoming the avenue of choice for consumers to shop for financial services. Insurance brokers who utilize the InsuranceQuotes web interface can capitalize on the delivery of over 30 000 insurance purchase enquiries from InsuranceQuotes.co.za users every month. (Estimates based on total 3.1m SA Internet users)

IQ Broker Services is seeking to establish mutually profitable business relationships with Insurance Brokers countrywide by offering a limited number of contracts to license the IQ Internet technology.

License agreements will provide broker partners with sole and exclusive use within a limited number of geographical regions.


How are quotes requested?
Consumers enter the details of their quotation request by completing a quotation request form on the InsuranceQuotes.co.za web site.

The form is divided into sections. The information requested in each section must be completed in order for the quotation request to be successfully submitted. The information requested includes client addresses, telephone numbers and ID numbers. Clients also include an email address.

The insurance info section includes all the information that SA insurers require in order for the broker to obtain a quotation.

This information is then automatically submitted, in real time, via system-generated email, to the relevant IQ Broker Partner who holds the license for the geographical area in which the client is situated.

The system-generated email is automated and allows Brokers to either respond electronically or directly to the Consumer with a quotation. The system will generate a unique reference number for each submission in order for Consumers to retrieve their quotation on lines. Quotations are continually sorted by the system in order to display the best 10 quotations (in order of price).

By utilizing the Broker Search Engine, Consumers are also able to locate specific service providers in a designated geographical area relative to the Consumers postal code. The InsuranceQuotes database will display a directory of these service providers and their company information. The amount of information available to the consumer will include full company and contact details as well as a link to the IQ Broker Partner's web site.


How are quotes returned to clients?
Before a Broker can receive requests to quote he must be registered on the www.InsuranceQuotes.co.za web site.

Brokers will be listed and their details recorded in the InsuranceQuotes database according to the type of subscription they choose.

Once registered, sales leads will be identified from information provided by clients visiting the web site, and matched with the selection criteria provided by brokers when updating their listing profile. The client details are forwarded immediately to the corresponding broker by email. A response facility is embedded in each email to allow for immediate email submission of quotations back to the clients quote box on the web server. Brokers can provide up to 10 alternate quotes to clients.

Brokers could also contact clients directly via telephone or email to submit or follow-up quotations and obtain any further outstanding client information that may be required.
