New tool will allow consumers the ability to obtain online quotes for
small business packages
REGINA, May 7, 2013 /CNW/ - SGI CANADA and KANETIX are excited to
announce the addition of two new products that are now available for
quote on SGI CANADA eQuote. Small business owners in Saskatchewan can
now obtain a quote online for SGI CANADA's small business packages of
Toolbox Pak and Energy Pak. Toolbox Pak provides affordable property
and liability insurance for small, independent contracting operations.
Energy Pak is designed to protect businesses in the oil and gas
industry from unexpected loss or property damage. The quoting of small
business packages compliments the ability to get an auto quote which is
already available on eQuote.
The small business eQuote service is the first of its kind offered in
Saskatchewan and employs the online quoting technology expertise of
KANETIX Ltd. While customers obtain their quote online, brokers
continue to be an integral part of SGI CANADA's eQuote process. Once a
customer has obtained their quote, the customer refers the quote
details to their chosen broker for consultation and advice before
completing the purchase from the broker.
The eQuote tool can be found at a variety of online locations including
participating broker websites, www.sgicanada.ca, and www.sgi.sk.ca. eQuote for Toolbox Pak and Energy Pak is fully functional on both
desktop computers and mobile devices allowing customers to obtain
quotes wherever it's most convenient for them.
"We are excited to partner with our brokers to offer more products as
part of our eQuote solution," said Andrew Cartmell, President and CEO
of SGI CANADA. "The addition of Toolbox Pak and Energy Pak to eQuote
is another step in our mission to provide convenient and accessible
ways to the SGI CANADA suite of products."
"Consumer demand for online commercial insurance products is growing,"
said Craig Hopkinson, Vice President of Kanetix SaaS. "Kanetix SaaS is
very pleased to be working with SGI CANADA as they once again strive to
meet the needs of the online consumer in new and innovative ways."
The enhancement of eQuote continues to entrench KANETIX's position as a
leading provider of online insurance quotes by continuing to innovate
how Canadians shop for, and buy, insurance.
