Polly launches insurance enrollment integrated into car-buying experience – Insurance Business

April 24, 2022 By admin

Polly (formerly known as DealerPolicy), an insurance marketplace for automotive retail, has announced the launch of the first personalized insurance enrollment fully integrated within the customer’s car-buying experience.
Using Cox Automotive’s Dealer Web Integration API, Polly now provides a car-shopping experience that allows shoppers to receive instant, personalized insurance quotes during the research phase of the car-buying process. Customers can choose to purchase insurance on the spot if they know the vehicle they want, or walk into a dealership to purchase a vehicle later already aware of their potential auto insurance savings, Polly said.
On average, Polly customers who report savings said they saved $64 per month on their auto insurance. Dealers in Polly’s network reported an average increase of 44% in their back-end gross.

For most people, insurance consideration begins before their vehicle is purchased, Polly said. A survey by the company found that 72% of respondents considered the cost of auto insurance before buying a new vehicle.
“Consumers have adopted online buying practices in spades and are now accustomed to a streamlined, self-serve, transparent experience,” said Wayne Pastore, president and chief operating officer of Polly. “Integrating insurance really is a layup in the automotive retail process.”
