LMI Group’s IT division has launched its first mobile phone application for the insurance industry, the LMi MobileUnder-insurance Calculator which is based on the popular LMI RiskCoach feature.

Designed to assist brokers explain the penalty a client will incur in the event of a claim, the mobile version makes it that much easier to take out in the field. One click of the button and the user is straight into the calculator.

While mobile apps have been successfully used internally by LMI Group for such tasks as handling emergency after hour claims calls, the LMi MobileUnder-insurance Calculator is the first to be released to the public. LMI Group’s Manager Information Services, Andrew Aisbett, predicts more apps will follow.
