The Digital Insurer's View
As digitalisation grows, insurers are bringing in more and more external stakeholders like repairers/bodyshops and hospital in an attempt to form their own ecosystem. Ultimately, this initiative from Warranty Group’s TrustCircle program will help to tap into the new segment of parallel imported and used cars that do not benefit from manufacturer’s warranty.
