San Ramon, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/08/2007 -- To better serve their clients, improve operational efficiencies, and increase their competitive edge, Old Republic Home Protection has added enhancements to their Web site, allowing clients to order or renew a home warranty and place requests for service online. Plan holders and Realtors® have overwhelmingly embraced the convenience and efficiency of being able to take care of their Home Warranty needs with a few clicks of the mouse.
The first enhancements to roll out were the ability to obtain quotes and purchase a warranty online. These functions were followed with the ability for Plan Holders to place service requests and renew Home Protection Plans online.
The online ordering system has been a tremendous success, with 40% of all orders now being placed online. Although the online renewal and service request options are more recent enhancements, and still gaining popularity with clients, Old Republic Home Protection is confident that they will experience the same or higher level of success with these on-line functions.
