    Tech Vision

    While developing Hippo, we refined the customer application process to save customers time. Aggregating data from multiple trusted sources, such as Zillow, municipal building records, aerial photography and smart home devices, we can backfile information for the online questionnaire to expedite the quote and onboarding experience. Customers can get a quote in 60 seconds and sign up for a policy in under four minutes. Hippo is the only insurance company leveraging the capabilities of big data to make a smart home a safer home.
