And the winner in the category 'Most Effective Consumer Smartphone App' of 2016 is… Yeah! Our Schadeformulier app has been selected as one of the finalists in the Effective Mobile Marketing Awards!
What makes our app effective? The Schadeformulier app makes it easy for people to fill in a damage report on their iPhone while they're on the road. As a result, you can easily report the damage digitally to your insurer. With the Schadeformulier app, we advocate for no more paperwork, a logical flow in the app, and an easier settlement of a damage claim for both the insurer and the damage reporter.
The goal of this app is to reduce the amount of handwritten, not fully completed and illegible paper damage reports that are still reported every year in the Netherlands. Given the fact that processing a paper form costs insurers an average of about 20 minutes and 20 euros per claim, we believe this can be more effective and save everyone a lot of time.
So, what lies ahead of us? The next steps will be to look for cooperation with insurers and stakeholders in the automotive industry to expand this innovation more widely. In addition, we hope to release the Schadeformulier app in other European countries.
On November 17th, the winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony in London! Hopefully, we may accept this awesome prize by that time.
For those who haven't got any car damage or are not yet familiar with the app, download the Schadeformulier app here. Always be prepared before you hit the road!
