Last year, AAR Insurance revamped its digital suite with the launch of a mobile app as part of its strategy to become a branchless and paperless insurer. This is in addition to unveiling the “AAR Linzi” Chatbot that gives real-time responses to insurance enquiries.
Today, anyone can subscribe to any of the covers provided under the medical underwriter via their mobile phone which is downloadable on the Android play store and Apple store. With the app, customers can get insurance cover for themselves and their loved ones conveniently from the comfort of their car, home or office.
It also allows customers to get a quote, make a claim or update contact information, integrate the app to customers’ WhatsApp, find medical providers and make one-click payments via mobile money platform hence cutting down the time needed for one-on-one interactions while enabling easy access to information.
“We are focused on creating value for our customers and in today’s world, the digital platforms make it easier for us to ensure that our customers have control over the things that matter most to them, like health,” said Kiprop.
