BIBA : new iPhone and iPad Find a Broker application launched

0 0

The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has launched a Find a BIBA Broker mobile application (app) for iPhones and iPads to help customers locate BIBA members and promote general insurance brokers.

Customers can use the app to search for BIBA members by town, postcode or their current location. They can then either call or email brokers directly or retrieve directions via Google maps.

The new app is an extension of BIBA’s existing online search and Find a Broker helpline which collectively receive more than 400,000 enquiries every year.  These have increased from 220,000 in 2008 because of BIBA’s active campaign to raise the profile of members with national media, consumer and business organisations.

Eric Galbraith, BIBA Chief Executive, said: “With the new signposting government agreement recognising our service as a suitable solution to help customers, we expect enquiries to increase further. It is therefore essential that members ensure that their information held is up to date.”

The app can be downloaded from the App Store on Apple iTunes by searching insurance, insurance broker, BIBA, British Insurance Brokers Association, find a broker or BIBA search. An Android mobile version will follow and BIBA’s existing Find a Broker service can be accessed at www.biba.org.uk or on 0870 950 1790.
