There is yet more competition in the insurance market as an online cycle and tri-sports retailer has updated its app to include incident help and insurance features.
Wiggle has updated its app to offer its customers quick access to cycle insurance and legal accident help to aid them in the event of a crash or similar accident, BikeBiz reported.
Kelly Barnes, head of business at Wiggle, said the move was in response to recent trends which saw a shift away from desktop driven sales and call centre claims to the mobile space, the report said.
