Merimen is the wholly-owned subsidiary of Silverlake Axis. The company offers Claims Management Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) for the motor insurance industry. Merimen’s TrueSight Interactive Video will allow insurance players to leverage on the tool to enhance claims process, improve efficiency and make their way into digital transformation one step at a time.

With TrueSight Interactive Video tool, survey agents can launch a video call on their web browser through a simple link. A claim assessment is completed within minutes, instead of surveyors having to travel down or arrange a physical meetup, which may take two to four days. The technology offers remote camera control, annotation, and geolocation features, which cut costs and maximise efficiency of claims surveyors. Capable of recording high definition images in real time, the risk of fraud from remote surveys is significantly reduced through the video interaction technology.

Merimen’s Head of Business Development & Singapore Operations, Fabian Lum, shared, “As the market leader in Insurance technology, Merimen commits to pioneering innovation for our customers. Our latest Interactive Video product aims to transform the damage survey process, and help insurers achieve increased survey efficiency and related cost savings.”

MSIG Insurance Pilot Programme

MSIG Insurance entered into the pilot programme, pioneering the use of video technology to optimise their motor claims processes to improve customer experience. Since the start of the pilot programme, they have already seen noteworthy results, with distance traveled and time taken for each claims assessment reduced significantly.

“The use of video technology has digitally enabled our people to engage with our workshops and our customers more efficiently”, shared Jeremy Lian, Senior Vice President (Technical Services), MSIG Insurance.

MSIG expresses a positive outlook on the programme, with plans to implement video technology as a permanent function. Merimen, with the support of Wavecell, will be showcasing and presenting their Video Interaction technology during the Asian Financial Services Congress 2019, featuring an exclusive case study of MSIG’s pilot programme.
