Minalea: the first robo-advisor for insurance sales
French startup Minalea developed the first robo-advisor for P&C insurance sales forces, the Smart Sales Assistant. The Smart Sales Assistant scans in depth the products’ content and services from the market and generates the perfect sales pitch. The solution is built for distribution networks like agencies and call centers but can also be given to customers online through the innovative chatbot Fred. The Smart Sales Assistant allows sales forces to bring real value and increase conversion rates from quotes to insurance policies. It produces a lot of data that is available through a web interface. The Minalea solution is mixing the use of complex algorithms, AI and advanced analytics.
Minalea is currently active in 2 countries, France and Belgium for the P&C market: car, home, liability and loan insurances. Over 30,000 users work daily with the “Smart Sales Assistant”. Customers are banks, mutual insurances and private insurers. The startup plans to move toward one new European market early 2018.
No longer focus on the price but intelligent data

The Smart Sales Assistant deeply analyses all the insurance offers from a product range in a given market, and is able to generate the most adapted sales pitch taking in account the customer profile and its current insurance. The use of the Smart Sales Assistant in distributions networks provides confidence to sales people. It gives them instantly useful insights to explain their products and value their market differences. It gives them the opportunity to bring the focus back on covers, security and protection and to keep away from only the price.
