Part of the modular FirstBest Front Office Suite, the new mobile app empowers decision making, with secure data access and transactions, using the same system to support both mobile and desktop users. Designed for Apple iPads, the new version extends remote capabilities to the full underwriting staff, the company said.

The mobile app enables Referral review, commenting and approval, Submission and quote viewing, Attachment viewing, Viewing activity for the user's book of business, and Task management.
