While as part of the digital-first and customer-centric approach we have introduced several pioneering AI/ ML backed digital solutions for enhanced customer experience, we also felt a need to create an inclusive digital eco-system that can provide customers with accurate, credible and trusted information on a 24X7 basis. We believe that here will soon emerge as a preferred platform for the users across the country, which will empower them to make informed decisions, and thus be ‘Seriously Helpful’ during their times of need. We expect that ecosystem platform like here will enable better and continuous engagement with our customers which in turn will deepen the ‘trust’ of the citizens of our country towards insurance, and thereby aiding the regulator’s initiative of ‘Insurance for All’ by 2047.”
