In Singapore, MSIG has teamed up with Merimen and Wavecell to co-innovate a video chat survey to speed up the motor claims process. The video is called TrueSight Interactive Video, which is first-of-its-kind video interaction technology. The technology has enabled MSIG to reduce its turnaround time for claims assessment and survey cost by 80% and 88% respectively.
The survey was developed after a 5-month pilot programme. The technology allows for a two-way, real-time video call to be initiated online so motor surveyors can view the vehicle damage and complete a motor claims assessment within minutes, resulting in an 80% reduction in turnaround time. The new technology also offers remote camera control, annotation and geolocation features, and is capable of capturing high definition images in real-time.
The technology is integrated with Merimen’s eClaims which is a digital claims management platform. This allows all video calls, vehicle photos and chat log between the workshop and the insurer, to be automatically documented into the system, further streamlining the motor claims process.
Jeremy Lian, Senior Vice President, MSIG Insurance, said “MSIG is proud to have pursued this co-innovation opportunity with Merimen and Wavecell, and bring to speed the development of a video interaction technology that will go on to benefit the rest of the industry. We have proactively lookout for ways to innovate and the different skills-set and expertise from each party, have provided this excellent chance of success.”
