PrivateQuote.com is an online insurance marketplace that allows people to compare term life insurance quotes from top providers. The startup’s founder Richard Jonas clearly remembers how the idea behind the new business was born.
“I was a rookie agent working for an insurance agency and it didn’t take long to see that there were serious problems with how insurance shoppers and insurance agents were connecting. There was a lot of mistrust and dishonest communication on both sides,” Jonas says. “I remember thinking ‘there’s got to be a better way’, so I started brainstorming how to solve the problems I faced every day.”
But then came the hard part – putting the business idea to the test by creating a web application that could automate the entire quote process online. After carefully researching all his options, Jonas chose Caspio.
“Caspio allowed me to take my dream and turn it into reality. I didn’t have programming skills to build the application from scratch. I knew I had a great idea for a new business but, as a self-funded startup, I also didn’t have venture capital available to pay professional programmers to do it. I needed an affordable, flexible solution that would allow me to do it myself.”
Instead of giving up all personal identity information to unknown agents, users can compare accurate term life quotes from many top providers while remaining completely anonymous.
Jonas points to the built-in security features as one of the main reasons he selected Caspio. “Caspio equips me with a high level of security for our end users. Our commitment to visitors’ online protection and privacy is a big part of what sets PrivateQuote.com apart from our competition.”
“I was amazed at how easy it was to launch a sophisticated application for immediate use on the web. Without Caspio, I honestly don’t think I could have started my business.”
