INNOVATION FEATURE • In the period 1994 to 2004, Progressive Insurance increased sales from $1.3 billion to $9.5 billion, and ranks high in the Business Week Top 50 U.S. companies for shareholder value creation. • The company invents new ways of providing services to save customers time, money and irritation, while often lowering costs at the same time. • Loss adjusters are sent to the road accidents rather than working at head office, and they have the power to write checks on the spot. • Progressive reduced the time needed to see a damaged automobile from seven days to nine hours. • Policy holders’ cars are repaired quicker, and the focus on this central customer need has won much automobile insurance business for Progressive. • These initiatives also enable Progressive to reduce its own costs – the cost of storing a damaged automobile for a day is $28, about the same as the profit from a six-month policy.
