Connected homes improved insurance
How Accenture is helping Achmea stay relevant with a peer-to-peer alarm platform.
Achmea, which offers a wide range of financial products and services, including home insurance, wanted to explore new, technology-inspired business models for reaching low-income market segments that proved underserved by its current offerings. Achmea started this initiative to stay relevant in the market for home insurance.
Accenture helped the company develop a very successful peer-to-peer alarm platform pilot that allows neighbors, friends, and family to help each other in case of fire or burglary.
The insurer recognized the need to develop new business models and therefore sought to explore new, technology inspired business models to:
Managing and supporting the core development team
Developing the connection platform, website, and devices
Supplying strategy and digital capabilities
Supporting agile methodology for design, development, and iteration
Improved safety and increased revenue
