Esurance Customers Can Monitor Repairs Online

______

San Francisco, CA — January 16, 2007

Esurance, a direct-to-consumer personal auto insurance company, announced its implementation of AutoWatch, a unique Web-enabled system that allows customers to monitor their vehicle's progress throughout the repair process.

Esurance feels that its technology-savvy customer base will appreciate the new feature. Gary Tolman, Esurance president and CEO, explained, "Our Web-savvy customers prefer to handle things online, at times when it's convenient for them to do so. With AutoWatch, our customers can see their car's progress 24/7."

David Henderson, AutoWatch president, stated, "We are very happy to have a technology-focused partner like Esurance. Being able to see a car's progress during its repair reduces customer hassle and gives people peace of mind."

Tolman stated, "When you have an accident, you just want your car repaired as quickly as possible. Most people don't like having to call the body shop to find out when a car's ready. With AutoWatch, our customers will be able to see progress throughout the repair process." Tolman concluded, "Our mission is to make the entire auto insurance experience easier, from quote to claim, and AutoWatch helps us fulfill that mission."
