The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has launched a smartphone app facility that can reduce the average commercial motor and fleet claims reporting time of 23 days by up to 90%.
The app, called Claims Made Easy, has been developed with Insure Apps and is available to BIBA members at discounted rates.
By speeding up, standardising and streamlining the claims process, BIBA says the app can help brokers to tackle late and inaccurate reporting of commercial motor and fleet claims. It allows the recording of key information such as GPS, police, witness, and third party details, along with photographs and additional information. A claim can be reported in less than 10 minutes and is instantly submitted to the driver’s head office and their insurance broker.
The app could also significantly reduce claims costs and is available to BIBA members at discounted rates. In addition, brokers can customise the app with their own branding.
Steve White, BIBA’s chief executive, said: “The app is a prime example of how brokers can benefit from InsurTech in everyday use – it’s a win for brokers, insurers and customers. I’m pleased that we have delivered on our manifesto commitment to provide InsurTech solutions for brokers with an app that’s tailored to them.”
Stephen Marshall, managing director of Insure Apps, added: “As an industry we’ve spent millions of pounds on technology to improve back office systems in insurance companies and brokers but how much has it improved the customer experience. Claims Made Easy will transform the way drivers, insurance brokers and insurers handle claims. It’s about putting technology in the hands of our customers.”
