To provide Generali France’s network of financial advisors access via their mobile device
Generali France, a general insurer and a foreign subsidiary of the Generali Group, has introduced a new life insurance application for iPhone, created and implemented with the help of Accenture.
The new application, which will be available in the beginning of 2010, will provide Generali France’s network of financial advisors real-time access through their mobile device to their client portfolio as well as detailed information for each client account, including savings, payment history, investment portfolios and the financial performance of each fund in which savings are invested.
The company has also planned to introduce a business-to-consumer version for the clients of Generali France’s network of financial advisors and for the direct clients of Generali France’s Internet subsidiary, who will have direct access to their own accounts.
Accenture backed Generali France define the overall business and information technology (IT) scope of the new life insurance application for iPhone.
Stéphane Dedeyan, member of the board of management of Generali France, said: “Following an Accenture workshop on how changes in consumer behavior are driven by the increased usage of smartphones, Generali France decided to work with the company to develop concrete business applications for its life insurance operations.”
