About Go Digit Insurance
The journey of Go Digit, a Fairfax backed non-life insurance company was started in the year 2017 when they received insurance business nod from IRDA. In the year 2017, along with Digit, IRDA had given in-principal approval to 2 more new insurance companies taking the total number of insurance players to 33 in India at that time.
Digit is the technology-driven insurance company, started by Kamlesh Goyal, and a very talented team of Insurance, that provides insurance products at a lower cost as compared to other conventional players in the market. Digit was formed with a motive of making insurance business smooth and hassle-free. They do all the process, interaction with channel partners, issuance of the policy, quotes, documentation on a real-time basis with the use of technology.
Within a year of launching the insurance business, they have covered three products across 3 categories (Motor, Travel, Personal accessories). Today they have almost all the non-life insurance products at its portfolio.
Philosophy of Digit
Conventional insurance companies think that “Claims are not good”. More the number of claims more will be the effect on the bottom-line of the P&L. So to avoid claims, first, they make insurance policies very difficult to understand and add a lot of conditions. Second, they make the processing of claims very cumbersome and time-consuming.
Digit has broken all these conventional thinking and said, “Claims are good”. Bring it on. At Digit, they follow the philosophy that claims are the reason that they exist, and customers are buying products for those days, when there would probably be a claim. Obviously, providing a hassle-free claims experience is an extremely important aspect of the insurance business.
Instances of use of technology in Travel and Motor Insurance explained by management;
1. “With the use of technology, It is possible for Digit to even predict in advance if a flight that the customer is traveling is delayed or not. They are able to see the route of the aircraft and predict if it will get delayed. They then send an SMS to the customer. There is a link on that SMS and if the customer clicks it then it allows him to take a picture of his boarding pass. He can put in his bank account number, and then there is an immediate claim registration and approval, and the money gets transferred to the customer’s account”.
2. Cut down Claims Inspection process from 7 days to 7 min
Even for motor and mobile claims, instead of people waiting for a third-party inspection, Digit empowers people to go for a self-inspection. This cuts down both operational costs for Digit and time for the customer. To give you an idea, the inspection time for car claims is 7 days on an average but our process takes 7 min.
