BTI Direct the First Ontario Broker to Launch its Own Customer Service Mobile App with Applied Systems

MyBTI to enable 24/7 mobile client self-service

Richmond Hill, ON (June 22 2016) – BTI Direct Insurance, an independent P&C insurance brokerage, has announced today its plans to release a mobile app called MyBTI Insurance to extend its customer service capabilities to mobile users. The app is powered by Applied MobileInsured, the industry’s first mobile app that allows brokerages to extend self-service to their insured.

MyBTI Insurance allows customers to view their policies and documents. This month, BTI Direct rebranded themselves and launched a new website,, that includes a chat function, an online quote engine and a desktop version of MyBTI Insurance, which allows customers to view and export their policies, request changes, or initiate a claim. These features are in development for the MyBTI Insurance app.

“A mobile app is another important step in deploying our digital strategy that aims to provide our clients with outstanding customer service and unparalleled flexibility in managing their insurance,” says Lolita Wong, Vice President, at BTI Direct Insurance.

The MyBTI Insurance application will be available in the App Store and Google Play app store free of charge. Customers can log in from their phone to present their pink slip, access documents, or to view their current coverage. Being able to start a claim request immediately, an upcoming feature, will also be helpful. The faster a claim is initiated, the faster it is settled.

“We have a very clear vision of where we want to be and what we believe will make life easier for our customers, and we are well on our way to achieving this vision thanks to our comprehensive digital strategy, including our latest mobile app,” says Jean-Francois LeBlanc, VP, Strategy.

“Consumer demand for anywhere, anytime access to information continues to grow,” said Jeff Purdy, senior vice president of International Operations, Applied Systems. “We are excited to support BTI Direct’s launch of their client application via Applied MobileInsured, the first brokerage in Canada, and look forward to supporting additional brokerage’s mobile and customer experience strategies.”
