Insurance and financial services provider The Hartford Financial Services Group has extended its online services with the addition of international air and ocean cargo insurance to its electronic submission tool Quote Marine.
Ocean Cargo, which is accessible through The Hartford’s electronic business center portal, is the second marine insurance product to be made available on the Quote Marine platform.
According to the insurance company, the technology allows agents to quickly submit, rate and bind policies over the internet, placing coverage in minutes rather than days.
Lauren Berry, assistant vice president of the commercial marine unit at The Hartford, said, Agents and brokers who write marine coverage want tools and processes that make their jobs easier. With our expanding electronic interface, we can help them focus more on relationships and new clients, which are the things that matter most to their business.
