An insurtech on demand platform for tailor-made policies

The insurtech on-demand platform chosen by the Telco operator is Upgrape, a tailor-made platform designed by the independent insurance broker Mansutti, which focuses on flexibility and freedom of choice. It is a “virtual lounge” that offers suggestions, assisted guided tours, and explanatory animations that allow customers to choose every single guarantee of their package.

Using the platform, the users can thus build their policy according to their real needs, with an “insurance-as-a-service” formula, i.e. paying according to the time of use, with no commitment to duration and with flexibility.

The proposed policies have a monthly duration, with the possibility of interruption every month, at the end of the needs.

“With the entry of Tiscali, Upgrape is also expanding into the Telco sector” commented Tomaso Mansutti, Managing Director of Mansutti S.p.A. “Through the platform, Tiscali has decided to enrich its services with a monthly and highly personalized insurance offer, which looks at the peculiarities of the person with the aim of helping him/her to protect what is important for his/her specific world, in a particularly shaped, effective and pleasant online environment.”

Renato Soru, CEO of Tiscali S.p.A. underlined: “Tiscali is committed to offering its customers, through its portal, an increasing number of useful and, at the same time, simple services. The agreement for the Upgrape platform represents an important step in this strategy. “We are therefore very satisfied to be able to do this with a qualified and innovative partner like Mansutti.”

The focus is on smart mobility

Tiscali has decided to start the service by focusing on Smart Mobility, the policy designed for those who move with pedal or electric vehicles, such as bicycles, scooters and small electric vehicles, which allows them to offload on the company the consequences of any damage caused to third parties. In addition to this policy, which meets the needs of the new mobility that has recently emerged, coverage is already available for traffic and housing and many others will be added in the coming months.

Taxes for the protection of digital identity

Tiscali will soon offer an Ultra Internet Security Plus package enriched with cyber coverage, engineered by Mansutti and offered through Upgrape’s Affinity Product Innovation, which protects against cyber damage including: reputation protection in case of digital identity theft/violation; monitoring of digital identity on the web and removal of any fraudulent use; coverage of financial losses resulting from theft and fraudulent use of the SIM card; coverage of the cost of redemption by hackers and protection of online purchases.
