GEICO announced the release of GEICO Connect, a new mobile app that allows access to GEICO insurance information via mobile devices.
"More and more consumers are using their smartphones and tablets to search and retrieve information," said Pete Meoli, manager of GEICO's mobile team. "As this becomes mainstream for insurance purposes, GEICO Connect is already ahead of the curve. We can deliver innovative digital capabilities to our customers anytime, anywhere."
According to the company, GEICO Connect is a mobile application solution for customers designed with multi-driver policies. The app ensures policyholders that their spouse or teens will have 24-hour access to essential insurance information. GEICO Connect features digital access to insurance ID cards, GEICO's Roadside Help and GEICO Accident Assistance, a step-by-step guide for motorists should an accident occur.
Meoli added, "Handing a family member the keys to the car can be an anxiety-filled experience. GEICO Connect offers policyholders some essential tools to help their loved ones when they are on the road."
The GEICO Connect App is currently available from the iTunes for iPhone users, with an Android version to follow.
