EMBARGO 23 March 2017 Cedar Rapids, IA) – GreatAmerica Financial Services Corporation today launched the first-ever app to use a salesperson’s mobile device camera to submit credit applications in the commercial financial services industry. SnappShot 2.0, made available this week to GreatAmerica customers nationwide, uses the mobile device camera to snap a picture of the customer’s business card to submit a credit application. It also creates and sends financing quotes via email or text.
“The majority of our customers transact business on the go, and we responded to their needs with a solution that saves them time and provides quick service to their customers,” said David Pohlman, GreatAmerica Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “The convenience of the mobile camera takes the hassle out of entering information.”
The app became available on Google™ Play and the Apple Store after pilot testing was completed. Users access SnappShot after contacting GreatAmerica to retrieve activation codes. Rate information used for quoting is tied to each customer’s customized program and encrypted during transmission.
“SnappShot and our InteGreat Web Services combine to make our customer’s data available to them using any number of tools they have in-house,” said Tawnya Stone, Vice President of the GreatAmerica Strategic Technology Group. “We were able to integrate data with their systems, web portals, and in this case, a customized mobile app.”
