Great American Insurance Group Unveils Crop Insurance Mobile App for Growers
CINCINNATI — May 13, 2019 — Great American Insurance Group’s Crop Division unveiled its first-ever, stand-alone mobile application built specifically for its policyholders—the growers.
The GreatAg® Grower Mobile app (Grower Mobile) offers a variety of functionality for policyholders. The simple-to-use mobile platform allows growers to report acreage and production to their agent, submit notices of loss, access claims and policy information, and view high resolution field maps.
Grower Mobile was developed to allow growers to conveniently and efficiently report their crop insurance information to their Great American agent any time, any place, through their mobile device. When the growers enter a report in the app, their agent receives a notification to review the information for potential updates to the policy. Policy documents can be sent electronically through the app to the grower for final review and digital signature. Grower Mobile streamlines communication between the grower and agent, and improves efficiency by eliminating paperwork and meeting time.
“Grower Mobile was designed to improve the collaboration between our insureds (the growers), and their crop insurance agents,” said Clay Tinnell, Divisional Assistant Vice President of Technology, Great American Crop Division. “We took the best features of our agent app, and enhanced them to make it easy for a grower to report acreage and production to their agent. Our agent and grower apps work together to improve efficiency and minimize time spent on reporting.”
“As one of the largest crop insurance providers in the country, we’re proud to offer Grower Mobile as a resource to our agents and the growers they serve. We’re confident this technology will enhance the customer experience for both our agents and policyholders,” said Tim Weber, Divisional President of Great American’s Crop Division.
The Great American Grower Mobile app is available to download for free through the Apple App Store. Policyholders can sign up to use the app through a simple authentication process, which verifies the mobile phone number listed on the crop insurance policy.
