Insurtech GloveBox goes live with insurance document mobile app

Insurtech GloveBox | July 09, 2019

GloveBox, a Denver-based insurance start-up, has announced the launch of its proprietary mobile app, which allows users to aggregate their insurance documents regardless of carrier. The app was developed to help consumers access their basic insurance information. It was also designed to save insurance agencies from having to constantly assist consumers with their requests for information – which takes time and money – allowing agencies to focus more on their bottom line. “Our goal is to not only create a unified policyholder experience inclusive of all carriers for the consumer, but also to take care of our agency owners and carriers,” said GloveBox co-founder and CEO Ryan Mathisen. “By offering a simplified process and a positive client experience, GloveBox can help increase both revenue and client retention all while eliminating the requirement for additional staffing to help with those Tier 1 service tasks.”
