MUMBAI, February 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Intimating a claim for your motor insurance policy has now become a lot more convenient. ICICI Lombard's Motor Insurance mobile app allows customers to intimate a claim directly through the company's mobile app 'Insure'. The customer needs to simply download the app on his/her mobile phone or tablet device, take a picture of the damaged vehicle, communicate his version of the accident/damage through a voice recording facility within the app and send the claim intimation from the app itself.
This is the first time in India that any general insurer is offering claim intimation facility through a mobile app. Secondly, the app allows customers to locate the nearest network garage, hospital or ICICI Lombard branch through special geo-tagging software embedded in the app itself - another unique feature of the 'Insure' app.
The app will be available to customers using smart phones/tablets running on Google's 'Android' as well as Apple's 'iOS' platform. It has been developed in-house by the ICICI Lombard IT team in its entirety.
Apart from the claim intimation, the mobile app allows customers the following benefits:
- Buy or renew a car insurance policy of ICICI Lombard anytime of the day from anywhere.
- Locate the nearest motor garage, hospital or ICICI Lombard branch from the app itself. This facility will enable customers to seek immediate help at the accident spot itself thereby saving precious time.
- Track the status of claim intimated in the past in terms of reimbursement, etc.
- Obtain details of the various insurance policies purchased from ICICI Lombard including Motor Insurance, Health insurance online, Home insurance as well as International Travel insurance.
- Connect with the 24-hour call centre of ICICI Lombard 18002666 directly from the mobile app.
- Set reminders for motor vehicle insurance policy renewal.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. N Eswarnatarajan, Chief - Operations & Technology, ICICI Lombard General Insurance said, "We are delighted to have introduced this unique end to end app for our motor insurance customers. This app will empower our customers to intimate a motor insurance claim anytime and from anywhere. In addition, they can locate the nearest network garage and hospital thus getting all necessary help right from their mobile device on an immediate basis. We are sure that the app will add to our customer service standards and offer convenience to our large base of customers."

With microservices, SOA and distributed architectures becoming more popular, it is becoming increasingly harder to keep track of where time is spent in a distributed application when trying to diagnose performance problems. Distributed tracing systems attempt to address this problem by following application requests across service boundaries, persisting metadata along the way that provide context for fine-grained performance monitoring.
