The Progressive Group of Insurance Companies, the third largest auto insurance group in the nation, has been selected by CIO magazine as one of the top 100 companies in the world to excel in information technology.
Progressive received the award based on its Total Loss Concierge service, which helps drivers find a replacement vehicle if their car is declared a total loss after an accident. The software program allows employees to retrieve customers' claim information and find a new vehicle for the driver through a networking of car dealerships and lenders.
Complete coverage of the 2007 CIO 100 awards will be in the Aug. 15 issue of CIO magazine and available online at www.cio.com.
The local Progressive office is at 4925 N. Union Blvd.
