We are so excited to share this news with you! It has been a working progress, but we now have an insurance app that will make your insurance experience that much better! This app has lots to offer; whether it is simply paying a bill, submitting a claim, contacting our office or keeping track of your vehicle registrations. This app has the ability to keep all this information in one location and at the edge of your fingertips. The photos and information you upload are stored in a secure database online, so if your phone is damaged, the data is still safe. You just need to download the app again onto another device and the information will still be there.
You will then have to register to set up your account. Click the “register now” button and fill in your name, email and password.
Then you will select your broker. Its alphabeticalized, so drop down until you find Block’s Agencies on the list. This is important as you will be able to contact us through the app and we will be able to contact you with important information. Then select the specific broker from one of our branches who takes care of your insurance needs. After that the app is pretty much set up.
On the home screen, you will have the ability to contact our office, view our other locations, access our website, file a claim, and submit a payment for your SGI Canada or Wawanesa policies. Our other companies are working on setting up a secure online portal for accepting payments as well, so hopefully they will be up soon.
We have also added the feature at the bottom to Get a Quote, which will direct you to our quoting tool on our website. You can also access your MySGI account on our app which allows you to renew your plates and registrations and access your SGI Canada insurance policies.
We also have our social media icons on the bottom of the app as well, so you can connect with us Facebook or Twitter. We are also on Instagram, Pinterest, Linkedin & Google+, so please come check us out.
On the next tab you can start inputting your information for your house. You can enter photos, a copy of your policy, other details you would like to keep right on this section. Photos of your contents, tools, the house, fence, garden, whatever you like.
The next tab is for your vehicles. This is a good place to keep photos of your vehicles, the registrations for those vehicles and their auto pak policy, etc. If you were to have an auto claim, this is where the information would be safely kept for you to access at that time.
The next tab is in the event of an accident. It helps walk you through the steps you should take after an accident. Whether you need to phone 911, or simply report the claim to your insurance company.
For more information on what else the app can do, here is a short video tutorial that will help demonstrate the features within the app.
If you have any questions about this new Block’s Agencies app, please feel free to contact one of our offices or stop in and our staff would be more than willing to help set it up for you.
