Insure Me, an online insurance booking platform and the future of digital insurance in Kenya, has been launched today.
InsureMe is an end-to-end digital insurance platform that is enabling customers to pay for their comprehensive car insurance in flexible monthly installments of up to 10 months through its one-of-a-kind Lipa Pole Pole solution.
Through insureme.co.ke, the customer can get a quote, choose additional benefits such as excess protector, windscreen cover, etc., book vehicle valuation at a place and time of their choice.
The platform allows customers to digitally get a quote and purchase an insurance cover online via their digital device.
More importantly, a customer can pay the calculated premium in full or in flexible monthly instalments of up to 10 months and receive a car insurance digital sticker to their email address within 10 minutes. The car insurance cover is underwritten by Heritage Insurance Kenya Ltd who are regulated by the IRA.
InsureMe’s claim process for accident, theft, windscreen damage among others, is also digitized to allow the customer to lodge their claim online through www.insureme.co.ke.
We believe that insureme.co.ke will satisfy customers’ needs and help transform the insurance industry for the better.
“Consumers are constantly seeking affordable and convenient ways of purchasing their comprehensive insurance cover so it’s time that they get something that is pocket friendly, convenient and fast,” said Mr Fred Chege, Founder and MD of InsureMe. “Thanks to our predecessors, we now have the luxury to move from feature-focused platforms to experience and behavior-based platforms.”
Unlike old systems that fail to give consumers good experience, Insure Me boasts of the Lipa pole pole feature that enables users to purchase the comprehensive car insurance and pay later up to 10 months instalments, an end to end online insurance purchase journey with no tedious paperwork, quick and easy purchase in less than 5 steps, 24/7 customer service, online car valuation booking service that goes where the customer is located.
Godfrey Kioi, Managing Director of Heritage Insurance Kenya, commented. “This collaboration couldn’t have happened at a better moment. An important plank for insurance penetration in Kenya is the convergence of product affordability and an enhanced end to end digital customer experience. It demonstrates Heritage’s commitment to investing in end-to-end digitization that will help Kenyans and boost their efficiency and prosperity.”
Heritage’s Autocorrect Motor Insurance policy, which debuted in Kenya in 2019, is powered by telematics technology, an Artificial Intelligence data and analytics-powered technology that collects and transmits driving behavior relating to acceleration, braking, and cornering – which influences insurance premium pricing, claims processing, and motor fraud reduction.
