WASHINGTON, D.C., December 10, 2013 – When it comes to mobile business, GEICO is the leader of the pack in the auto insurance industry. The company has garnered the highest overall score in Forrester Research's November 2013 report, 2013 U.S. Mobile Insurance Functionality Rankings. GEICO stood out in multiple categories, earning perfect scores for mobile quotations, and policy information and management. GEICO also registered top scores for the variety of mobile devices supported and its mobile service features.

Greg Kalinsky, GEICO senior vice president and chief information officer noted, "Our customers have high expectations and we believe this top honor reflects that GEICO is focused on providing the absolute best mobile experience for our policyholders."
