“Getting the online rate quote process right is notoriously hard,” said Pamela Pavliscak, a Change Sciences partner, and one of the authors of the report. “Consumers who are shopping primarily on price are put through a grueling series of forms. The process bristles with potential annoyances, from entering vehicle information to off-putting personal questions. The sites at the top of our list are practicing what we consider hyper usability, with a laser focus on reducing user effort and persuasiveness.”
The complete list of sites included in the research follows: 21st Century, AAA California, Allstate, Amica, Esurance, Farmers, GEICO, GMAC Insurance, Liberty Mutual, LowerMyBills.com, Nationwide, Progressive, Safeco, State Farm, The Hartford, Travelers, and Unitrin Direct.
The new report is based on Change Sciences’ Kantuit(TM) interactive user experience modeling technology and process. Kantuit makes it possible to compare the user experience of alternative interactive designs and identify best practices in a way that is not possible using other approaches.
