Sometime back we embarked on our hyper-personalization journey built on the pillars of 3 Vs – Video, Voice and Vernacular. Catering to the evolving needs of our customers, we have enabled our customer service voice bot LiGo on 'Google Assistant', making it accessible on all platforms and devices it is available on. Accessing policy information based on voice commands provides unmatched convenience and instant gratification. With the addition of this digital enabler, there will be a transformation in the way customers interact with the Company. We will continue to innovate to further empower our customers”
By leveraging new-age technologies the Company has introduced a bouquet of digital enablers to address every requirement of a customer during the policy lifecycle – from on-boarding to servicing the needs of the customers. For instance, customers can use the Company’s digital enablers to transact online and each of the digital enablers, i.e. WhatsApp, the Company website, mobile app and Chatbot LiGo are almost equivalent to a virtual branch.
