InformationWeek magazine has named Progressive car insurance to its annual list of the country's most innovative users of business technology. Progressive was ranked on the InformationWeek 500 for its mobile quoting platform, which gives consumers the ability to get Progressive car insurance quotes with a mobile device. Currently, mobile quoting is available in 40 states.

"We've worked hard to enhance our mobile capabilities over the past year, adding high-value features like the ability to get a quote and buy car insurance," said Matt Lehman, Progressive's mobile business leader. "We're tapping into consumers' increasing use of mobile technology to make it easier for people to connect with us."

Progressive recently unveiled new mobile offerings, giving consumers even more ways to buy and manage their car insurance policies. Among the new and enhanced mobile services are:

  • VIN Capture: Now customers can simply take a picture of a car's Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) bar code and find out what it might cost to insure it.
  • Snapshot Discount® updates: New customers can enroll in Progressive's one-of-a-kind Snapshot program. Customers can review their projected discount by visiting http://mobile.progressive.com and logging into their policy.
  • Policy changes and payments on-the-go: Drivers can easily update their address and contact information or make a payment by going to http://mobile.progressive.com from their smartphone.
  • Severe weather text alerts: Consumers can now receive advanced warning of bad weather by signing up for free severe-weather text alerts at http://www.progressive.com/weatheralerts.
  • Enhanced access to important insurance information: Customers can now access their VINs, policy dates, insurance coverages, and all vehicles listed on the policy from their smartphones.
