Al Wathba National Insurance Company (Awnic) is one of the United Arab Emirates' biggest insurance companies for both smart and digital services and recently launches an online commerce website to provide quicker services and a digital auto auction platform.
Awnic also was recently given the "Digital Transformation & Smart Services" Award by the UAE Insurance Authority for the company's ability to adapt to new technologies.
“Receiving such a distinction from an industry regulator for the second year in a row is an invaluable recognition of the company's unique initiatives especially in such a competitive market,” said Bassam Chilmeran, Awnic’s Chief Executive Officer.
“Today Awnic is launching its first interactive website and mobile app to avail its products online and process motor claims digitally for customers. We are very proud to be leading the way in smart services and are committed to pursuing our digital transformation journey.”
“We wanted to provide a platform for the general public that does not currently exist in the industry, Chilmeran added. “By capitalizing on technology over the past few years, we have managed to open new channels of services to enhance our users’ experience and facilitate transactions.”
Awnic's new website will also provide a complete auto salvage auction platform. Even though online salvage auctions are pretty common for removing damaged cars, but this platform will be one of only a few to offer this service online.
Those who bid or purchase vehicles can register on the platform to browse salvaged vehicles, review reports on car conditions, set up in-person reviews, and then proceed to bidding.
Awnic has been starting up several online projects the most popular of which is its mobile app. Awnic's app allows consumers using their mobile devices to get a quote, buy or renew auto, home, travel, or other vehicle policies, file a claim, or access other services. Awnic's website also provides some of these services as well.
“I recommend anybody to download the app, even if they are not Awnic customers,” said Anas Mistareehi, Chief Operating Officer.
“The platform is very unique in the market and has been developed to provide immediate assistance in a variety of situations. When renewing an annual car registration for instance, people often remember at the last minute that they have not renewed their motor insurance.
“Instead of having to request a quote and come back another day, or wait for an agent to answer, all they need to do is open the Awnic App on their smartphone, purchase the right policy, get an official confirmation almost instantaneously with minimum human interference, and go ahead. On top of that, they can even get their car registration for free and get offers from UAE's top brands from the Awnic Privilege Program,” Mistareehi added.
