Utica National Insurance Group To Offer Insurance Tools, Safety Resources In New Mobile App From AT

New Hartford, New York, August 29, 2011 ShareThis
Accidents happen. And when they do, in addition to woes big and small, they invariably bring the anxiety of processing insurance claims and getting necessary support on the ground. The Utica National Insurance Group has an app for that.

The Utica National Insurance Group is launching a new mobile application from AT&T* to help equip policyholders and others with insurance and safety resources virtually wherever they may be. Built on AT&T’s Mobile Enterprise Applications Platform (MEAP), the application will allow users to access whatever insurance tools they might need – from making a payment, reporting a claim or accessing accident checklists – with the push of a button on their mobile device.

Utica National’s new “Mobile AdvantEDGE” application will allow real-time access to a variety of informational tools and features, including the ability to obtain roadside and towing services, pay bills, check the status of existing claims or submit new ones, and contact an insurance agent. New claims can be submitted for auto, worker’s compensation, agent’s errors and omissions, homeowners, boat owners and more. When trouble strikes, the application also offers key contact information for local emergency services, an accident checklist, a search tool to find a local repair service and a flashlight tool. The application will be available for download on a variety of mobile devices across all major platforms including Android™ and BlackBerry® smartphones.

“We created this all-in-one mobile application to put insurance and safety information at our policyholders’ fingertips, so we can help them from virtually any location or at any time,” said Mike Cookson, Internet Development Manager with Utica National. “AT&T’s mobile platform makes this instant delivery possible and gives us the opportunity to enhance this application’s offerings as our customers’ needs evolve.”

With the versatility of AT&T’s MEAP, Utica National will have the ability to easily update the application and potentially deploy multiple applications in the future and manage them over the course of their lifetime.
