Marmalade launches QuickQuote for brokers

Posted by Media Team on 05 October 2015 in Press Releases

Marmalade, a leading provider of cars and insurance for young drivers, has launched QuickQuote, a unique new app for brokers that enables them to provide good value insurance quotes for young drivers in minutes, simply by adding a link to their website.

The new system, which is already used by organisations including Ford, Motorpoint, A-Plan and Insure Your Motor, is a simple online app developed by Marmalade. A unique link is provided to participating brokers to be added to their website. The app requires the broker, with their customer, to input three simple pieces of information in order to deliver an instant quote that is accurate within £50. If the customer is interested and wants to take it further, they are then directed to Marmalade’s website to complete the full application.

 

A dedicated team at Marmalade keeps in close contact with all brokers involved in the scheme, allowing the broker to retain full ownership of their customers through shared data (once approved by customer) and updates regarding the customer’s journey.

 

Crispin Moger, CEO at Marmalade, said: “With more than 150,000 17-18 year olds passing their driving tests in the past year,1 many brokers have customers with children that need car insurance. We have developed QuickQuote as a tool to enable our partners to provide instant quotes at good value for young drivers aged between 17 and 25. The launch of this latest product forms part of our ongoing strategy to develop innovative new ways to help grow our business while supporting brokers and ultimately improving the safety of more young drivers on our roads.”

 

Marmalade’s New Driver insurance, based on advanced telematics technology, provides fully comprehensive cover on a full or provisional licence, with no change in the price once the driver passes their test. Marmalade insures cars that have engines up to 1.4 litres and are under 10 years old. Read more about its New Driver Insurance.

 

Michael Foord, branch manager at A-Plan, said: ''Marmalade 'Quick Quote' is a real time saver in wheedling out the non-competitive quotes that naturally come with a high volume of young driver quotations. With an average closure rate of just 25% on most young driver quotes we can't afford as a business to be running full quotes through each time. With 99% accuracy we can be assured that QuickQuote is providing us the best possible rate with just three questions to answer.”

 

Richard Adam Miller-Williams, Direct Sales Manager at insure your motor, said: “When I first saw this system I was pleasantly surprised. Initially I had an old DOS system in mind, something that would take ages and that customers would not have the time to run this sort of quote. How wrong could I be? Once I’d familiarised myself and ran a few test cars through the system I understood straight away the benefits and how my staff would take to this like a duck to water. I have since had feedback from customers and staff about how professional and polite the Marmalade staff are when calling back. It’s a 10/10 from all of us here.”
