InsureApp, part of RISK, is a promising and ambitious new Dutch startup. At InsureApp they truly believe that an insurance should be about the customer. Representing who they are, what their objectives are and what they wish to protect and what they love most. With InsureApp RISK launches the next generation of User-Based Insurance (UBI), specifically based on lifestyle, user behavior and context. Where the current generation of UBI is focused on what happens with the car during a trip, InsureApp focusses on the behavior and context of the driver. The data collected through the app is extended beyond the trip. Contextual information is used in the evaluation of the risk and furthermore to enable additional value added services such as prevention and coaching.
How it works:
By combining and interpreting smartphone sensor data, InsureApp contextualizes human behavior and translates this into “the most personalized insurance on the planet”. They blend with a user's real-time needs with context and patterns to offer relevant insurances for, for example, travel insurance or an ad hoc on-demand insurance. Their self-learning algorithms predict circumstances and take action when required by providing accurate notifications regarding the possible prevention of loss (e.g. driving behavior) or lifestyle coaching (e.g. work-life balance).
InsureApp will be pushed to an existing client base of 2.000 users. From there the startup will broaden the scope to other on demand insurance categories and initiate an international rollout.
As part of RISK, a well-known Dutch InsurTech service provider and frontrunner in Usage- Based Insurance, InsureApp profits from the strong presence of RISK in the segment of UBI car insurance with brands as “VOOROP” and “fairzekering”. RISK has won the Accenture innovation award 2014 and a nomination for the Dutch Fintech Award.
