GEICO is launching a new Facebook app called "GEICO Shortcuts," to give GEICO policyholders access to their insurance information using the functionality of the popular social networking site.
“Facebook’s dramatic growth has significantly changed the way people consume information,” said Steve Smith, GEICO assistant vice president for information technology. “We’ve created an app that makes it easier for customers to get access to GEICO within the Facebook environment.”
Here are some features of the GEICO Shortcuts app:
• Pay your bill (via a stored account or using the one-time card option)
• Retrieve your ID cards to save or print
• View GEICO Privileges deals
• Rate Caveman Photo Crasher photos
• Unlock tokens by performing certain tasks within the Facebook app
The GEICO Shortcuts app joins an ever expanding list of mobile apps released in 2011 including the GEICO Guinea Pig Getaway app, the GEICO BroStache app and the Caveman Photo Crasher app. To access GEICO Shortcuts, click on http://on.fb.me/nLo8Vb or to experience GEICO.com’s latest innovation, visit http://www.geico.com/information/mobile.
