Qover, winner of the DIAmond Award Munich is a Belgium based insurance technology startup. They have built the world’s first ‘Insurance-As-A-Service’ platform to change the way insurance is designed, managed and distributed. As a cover holder of Lloyd's of London, Qover acts as a digital wholesaler of proprietary white label insurance, allowing any business or Insurtech to seamlessly integrate their library of insurance products into its digital ecosystem via their open API's. Qover manages digitally the whole stack of insurance: product design, pricing, risk and claims. The startup offers innovative products - backed by the bests.
Qover acts as an insurance wholesaler offering ‘Insurance As-A-Service’ to digital business partners, the B2B2C business model. The customer receives a price in real time and can immediately purchase an insurance product and the digital contract is instantly issued. Qover also innovates in insurance products, offering "Sliced On-Demand coverage" alongside traditional coverage. Cutting conventional products into more targeted by-products and varying the duration of coverage on demand from one day to one year.
Motor GAP policy: Protect 100% of the purchase price of a car for up to 5 years.
The first live product is a motor GAP policy underwritten by AmTrust Syndicate 5820 at Lloyd’s for the Belgian market. This policy is available for the owners of new and used cars bought in the last 6 months and covered by a full casco insurance. In case of total loss or theft of the car, the customer receives the difference between the original price he paid and the indemnity paid by the casco insurer. Full protection up to the 5th anniversary of the vehicle. Qover is also building the full motor insurance product line with sliced and on-demand features along with more traditional insurance products.
Next to the GAP policy, Qover is working hard to build a full range of non-life insurance products.
Qover targets 3 different distribution channels:
- Traditional brokers that want to digitize: many brokers are struggling to digitize “organically”. Some are therefore using the Qover platform, which can be white-labelled, in parallel to their core systems.
- Large non-insurance distributors: Qover’s platform can be used by third parties as a customer- or agent-facing system. Qover believes that “comfortably over 50%” of the car sales market in Belgium is speaking to him about a possible integration.
- InsurTechs: Qover can be accessed by InsurTechs looking for capacity.
Traditional insurers are going digital by simply putting their complex processes and products online. Qover believes digital insurance is about re-thinking everything from an empty sheet. They have completely rethought the insurance product and processes. They want to change people’s opinions about insurance completely. For a lot of customers, the insurance process is a painful process with impersonal, incomprehensible policies, expensive product packages and an unsatisfying claims service. It is in Qover’s DNA to elevate the customer experience with on-demand made-to-measure insurance handled through a fully digital process. Thanks to Qover’s top-notch customer care, users feel supported and listened to in any situation and they pay only for what they really need and they can cancel anytime.
