Showcases Plug-ins at IRCE Conference

ATLANTA –- Assurant (NYSE:AIZ), a global provider of specialty protection products and related services, today unveils Big Commerce and Magento plug-ins for the Assurant Product Protection platform at the Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition show.

Assurant Product Protection is a technology solution that gives retailers the ability to provide customers with online product protection plans backed by a Fortune 500 company. Retailers with Magento and Big Commerce ecommerce platforms can quickly and easily install these plug-ins, launching their programs in less than a week and earning incremental revenue on each product protection plan sold.

“Assurant Product Protection offers great benefit to retailers by paying them, rather than requiring what is often a substantial up-front cost or monthly payment,” said Jessica Lesesky, vice president of retail solutions at Assurant. “Our Big Commerce and Magento plug-ins also reduce the technical resources and investment needed from the retailer, making it easy to get started with this program.”

With the new plug-ins, retailers will be able to maximize revenue through highly-effective attach rate strategies and a seamless integration throughout the shopper journey. In addition, retailers will be able to increase customer loyalty by offering additional peace of mind on purchases as well as a premium claims and customer support experience delivered by Assurant.

The enhanced Assurant platform supports a variety of product categories including jewelry, watches, consumer electronics, eyewear, power tools and small kitchen appliances.

Assurant will be presenting the Big Commerce and Magento plug-ins in booth 874 at the IRCE show June 7-9 in Chicago. Retailers interested in receiving a demo as well as a customized revenue forecast can email Chris Rickey, manager of sales operations (Chris.Rickey@assurant.com), to schedule a discussion.
