Best Car Insurance Discounts for 2014 Featured at New Car Owner Portal Online


Miami, FL (PRWEB) August 22, 2014

Insurance agencies throughout the U.S. can raise or lower pricing for adults depending on market changes or previous collision histories, according to newly published industry data. The Quotes Pros company is now helping to showcase some of the best car insurance discounts for 2014 that consumers can review at http://quotespros.com/auto-insurance.html.

A public system has been completed for use this year that includes participating companies in all states in the U.S. that are supplying price data to car owners. The types of discounts that apply to adults who use the search tool this year pertain to liability, full coverage, collector and SR22 plans.

“We’ve adjusted the number of insurers that appear in our location system to provide immediate access to a broad base of discounts that agencies now supply,” said a Quotes Pros rep.

The 2014 discounts for automobile insurance policies that are searchable are delivered once a driver enters a zip code that is matched to national providers. Because the system uses local search data, car owners can be presented with affordable prices from local companies in their area.

“Buying an auto insurance plan from a provider is possible using our research system because some providers lock in an annual price for consumers,” said the rep.

The Quotes Pros company is using its national database of insurers to connect with the public to make researching on the Internet for discounts easier. The company system provides more than vehicle insurer plans and consumers can search for health insurance rates at http://quotespros.com/health-insurance.html.

The company has a set of tools that are specifically designed to search nationally for price data.

Insurance.com, Which Compares Auto Insurance Rates for Drivers Across the U.S., Delivers 11 Millionth Quote


Foster City, CA (PRWEB) August 25, 2014

Insurance.com, a car insurance comparison-shopping site that offers side-by-side policy choices, marked delivery of its 11 millionth quote to consumers nationwide.

Online shopping has become the new normal when it comes to car insurance, said Des Toups, Insurance.com managing editor. When Insurance.com was founded in 2001, just contacting an insurance company via the Internet was a curiosity. Today, Insurance.com is an online marketplace for directly comparing quotes and buying a policy in less than 10 minutes.

Toups said Insurance.coms quote-comparison tool allows drivers to road-test changes in their coverage and immediately see the effect on prices that different insurance companies offer.

The company that was cheapest when you were single and had an old car very likely will not be the cheapest when you become a married homeowner trying to cover a new minivan, said Toups. We encourage our customers to crunch the numbers. Some find they already have a great deal on insurance and a lot of others save hundreds, even thousands of dollars.

An analysis of more than 550,000 recent car insurance quotes showed drastic differences between the prices insurers offered the same drivers for equivalent coverage. On average, the least expensive quote was 34 percent cheaper than the most expensive, said Toups.

Insurance.com, an independent marketplace with clients that include Progressive, Esurance, The Hartford, Travelers and 21st Century, has sold nearly 1 million policies across the U.S.

About Insurance.com

Insurance.com, based in Foster City, Calif., is an online resource where consumers can compare side-by-side, real-time auto insurance quotes from multiple insurance carriers. Since its inception in 2001, Insurance.com has delivered more than 11 million quotes to consumers who, in less than 10 minutes, fill out one form and save an average of $ 540 annually making it one of the largest independent insurance marketplaces in the U.S. Participants include some of the biggest names in auto insurance, including Progressive, Esurance, The Hartford, Travelers and 21st Century.

US Fleet Tracking Explains How GPS Tracking Can Help Companies Avoid Common Time-card Error Confusion


Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (PRWEB) August 15, 2014

I am going to be late! I am going to be late again! Mike says aloud as he sits trapped in line for his breakfast, with five cars ahead of him and no way to escape the fast lane. If he were to escape however, he would not only have no breakfast, he would leave a fifteen minute ordeal empty handed.

Once Mike gets to work, he immediately starts the day, getting through the stack of work, he takes a fast lunch, and while he sits in evening traffic after five hours of overtime, he suddenly remembers the sign on his way out the door that clearly reads Your failure to clock in and out of your shift mean you will not be paid.” UGH! He had forgotten again!

While most employers will go back and help an employee retain those hours worked one way or another, this scenario is no stranger to many people, and those who are in fleet management know that their workers are not exempt either. Fixing time-card errors can be a huge mess to fix and failure to keep correct time card documentation is only the start. The challenge in fleet management is not only do they have multiple employees and departments, which is the case in many companies, they also have the added element of their employees being in various locations and in mobile work spaces.

A huge perk of implementing GPS tracking into a business like this is that it gives an insurance policy for error, intentional and unintentional. GPS tracking provides these businesses a way to keep better track of their employees.

Time clock errors: A business is given the tools to eliminate intentional and unintentional time clock errors. With GPS tracking, the variable of incorrect time-sheet entry is taken out of the equation completely since the moment the engine is turned on, creating tabs on hours worked. The same is true for when the engine is turned off. This keeps the forgetful or the unethical employees mistakes at bay.

Human error: With manual entry, the payroll department no longer runs the risk of accidental duplication of time-sheet records since time-sheet information can be exported at any time.

Overtime: While owners would love to think that all their employees are honest about the hours they work, not everyone will be. From time to time, overtime is needed to complete a job, or an employee may be approved to work overtime hours. With GPS tracking, a business is able to record instances where a driver may be wasting time just to gain their overtime pay. A GPS tracking system will be able to pinpoint this type of behavior, while finding the most thorough ways to complete an assignment.

Virtual time card entry is just one of the ways that GPS tracking can help save time, money, and resources.
