Helvetia has solved the physical signing of documents by both parties (a historical problem in the sector); it shortens the time and effort level when formalising polices, and digitally ﬁles customers’ docu-mentation.
Through its agreement with Wise Security Global, the insurance provider Helvetia has implemented biometrics in the signing of its policies as well as Blockchain certiﬁed notiﬁcations to insured parties and brokers, as an added layer of security.
Initially, Helvetia would sign hard copies of policies, leading to high costs for printing, handling and sending documents. The analogue process was also difﬁcult to integrate into Helvetia’s platforms. In its focus on the customer and excellence, it challenged itself to make the following changes: Cost savings and eradications in administration processes and improving customer impact and experience for users.
“With the traditional method, in many instances the insured person never actually signed the policy, with the resulting legal risk. Now, Helvetia customers can take out or renew insurance policies using their digital signature in a simple and streamlined process that guarantees the authenticity and legality of the contract. This improves the security of our customers from the very onset of their rela-tionship with Helvetia”.
Víctor Tomás Lizarraga, Head of Digital Strategy and Transformation at Helvetia Seguros.
