NCDOI Launches Mobile Web site for Consumers

Abbreviated site another example of Commissioner Goodwin's Good Government Initiative

RALEIGH -- Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin today announced the launching of a mobile version of the N.C. Department of Insurance's Web site,, to provide a mobile-friendly way for consumers to link with the Department.

"The Department of Insurance is always looking for ways to reach out to the public and provide information about how the Department can be of assistance," said Commissioner Goodwin. "As more and more people are using their web-ready phones to connect with the Internet, I want to make sure that is user-friendly and provides direct access to our consumer help lines and at-a-glance consumer information." Goodwin added that the mobile site is an abbreviated version of the Department's standard Web site.

Consumers who visit the N.C. Department of Insurance's mobile Web site will find linked phone numbers to the Department's consumer help lines, recent press releases, social media pages and consumer quick guides on insurance.

Commissioner Goodwin's Good Government Initiative strives to increase transparency, access and customer service in state government. Other Good Government Initiative projects include the Department's online suggestion box, added Web presence through social media sites and a general increase in consumer outreach and public availability by Commissioner Goodwin.
