Online Car Insurance Tool That Lets Drivers Name Their Own Price Pushes Progressive Near the Top of InformationWeek 500


Tenth year Progressive named to list; first time in top five.

MAYFIELD VILLAGE, Ohio .— Using technology to improve the experience of shopping for car insurance has put Progressive near the top of the InformationWeek 500, InformationWeek magazine’s annual ranking of the country’s most innovative users of business technology. Progressive has made the list every year for the past 10 years, but this is the first time it has landed in the top five.

One of the key drivers of Progressive’s number number three ranking on the list is Name Your Price®, the company’s exclusive online tool that lets customers decide what they want to pay for car insurance. Shoppers enter basic information about themselves and their vehicles on, and Name Your Price displays the available package of coverages, limits and deductibles closest to the price they’ve entered. Users can also drag a “slider” bar to the right or left, and coverage options are changed on the fly making it easy for users to see how their price selection affects their coverage.

In addition to ranking third on the overall InformationWeek 500, Progressive also placed first in the Insurance category.
