CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Insurify, the intelligent insurance marketplace and creators of the first virtual insurance agent, announced today that www.insurify.com has won The Web Marketing Association’s 2016 Outstanding Website Award in the insurance category during its annual WebAward Competition.
This is the first time in the competition’s 17-year history, that the award has gone to a startup. GEICO was last year’s winner while previous recipients have included Progressive and Liberty Mutual. The winner is selected by top executives in digital marketing, advertising, design and public relations. The judges evaluated the site in 7 categories: design, copywriting, innovation, content, interactivity, navigation and use of technology.
“Having just gone through shopping for homeowners and auto insurance online, I can truly appreciate what this site provides that others in the industry fail to,” says one of the judges who evaluated the site.
Insurify, which launched its intelligent insurance marketplace in January this year, helps drivers compare, customize and buy insurance policies from 102 carriers including Progressive, Esurance, Travelers, Safeco and The General. The site also provides an intelligent insurance recommendation engine which advises the customer on the right coverages for their individual needs.
“We are very honored to receive this recognition,” says Insurify’s Director of Product, Tod Kiryazov. “We wanted Insurify to feel like a pleasant conversation with an agent: simple and accessible, without much jargon. We came up with a modern design language to execute on that vision and better connect with Insurify’s target audience, which happens to be anyone who drives a car in the US.”
“Each year, the online marketing community raises the bar in terms of website development,” said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. “Website design is constantly evolving to better meet the needs of the online audiences. This year, the WebAwards competition received remarkable entries from around the world that show impressive creativity and functionality. We congratulate all of our winners for developing websites that deliver for their audiences.”
Insurify is based in Cambridge, MA and is the first intelligent insurance agent and marketplace for car insurance shopping that uses predictive modeling and advanced analytics to truly simplify shopping for car insurance. Available in 50 states, Insurify has partnered with the largest agencies and carriers in the US to quote 82 carriers in real-time, more than any other online platform for car insurance shopping.
