Key Quotes:

  • “We’re trying to bring everyone together, huddle everyone up… say, look, this is benefiting the distribution channel of the independent agent, and it’s helping them service their book of business, and it’s helping the policyholder have a better relationship with their insurance, which ultimately helps everybody: the agency and the carrier.” – Andy Mathisen
  • “The best part about GloveBox as a user is that you don’t have to remember a username and password. You enter your phone number, you get a pin number. Thank goodness. The day of username and passwords are gone, let’s get rid of that.” – Andy Mathisen
  • “You’re only thinking of your insurance once or twice a year. But, if we can have them learn to come and use this more frequently, you’re going to see a better client out of it, and their retention is going to go up.” – Andy Mathisen
