Partnership expands reach to UK SME insurance and associated companies
SAN FRANCISCO, March 09, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SightCall, a global leader in augmented reality (AR)-based remote visual assistance, today announced its partnership with QlaimsTech, Ltd., a London-based claims technology provider. The partnership opens up access to insurance companies that have already encountered cost-based barriers to entry. The Qlaims team adopted SightCall visual assistance as a support solution for its customers in early 2022, encouraged by its strong track record of success and proven track record with leading insurers in the UK and globally.
“The insurance industry is being revolutionized by digital tools that make claims more transparent and recovery from incidents faster, giving policyholders peace of mind,” said Thomas Cottereau, Founder and CEO. from SightCall. “These technologies are an investment in the future for insurance companies large and small, and our partnership with QlaimsTech brings that possibility even closer to many other providers, transforming thousands of claims every year.”
While QlaimsTech Insurance uses the SightCall platform as part of its own claims management for its MGA, Qlaims, the company resells SightCall to smaller related businesses across the general insurance industry, providing them with a cost-effective way to adopt a few licenses, a pay-to-go arrangement, or a complete remote visual assistance solution.
Claims adjusters deploy SightCall to provide rapid assistance and immediate triage to customers, documenting information and determining mitigation measures. During the company’s pilot project, remote visual assistance delivered more than 60% savings in operating costs, coupled with a massive drop in its carbon footprint from reduced travel.
“Our brokers and their clients seem really impressed with how quickly we can get things done,” said Liz Latter, CEO of Qlaims. “In many cases, we were able to initiate the claims and mitigation processes within minutes of first being notified of a loss. As one customer told us, ‘I never thought that the insurance industry could act so quickly.’ That’s the impression we want to create every time, and with SightCall it’s possible.”
