In a strategic agreement to help mitigate claim costs and increase customer engagement, American National will offer free sensors to select policyholders through its property and casualty subsidiaries
Roost, the global leader in Property Telematics for property insurance carriers, announced a new partnership with Texas-based American National Insurance Company. In a strategic agreement to help mitigate claim costs and increase customer engagement, American National will offer free sensors to select policyholders through its property and casualty subsidiaries.
American National policyholders with specific risk characteristics will be offered the award-winning Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector. American National will also look to strengthen its engagement with insureds through an American National branded mobile app, enhanced with severe weather alerts from IBM/The Weather Company.
“We are very happy to announce this strategic partnership with Roost to deliver their smart sensors to our policyholders,” said JD Johnson, Executive Vice President, Corporate Business Process Officer, and Chief Information Officer. “At American National, we aim to provide our policyholders with value and trusted solutions and this relationship with Roost accomplishes just that.”
The Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector is designed to sense water leaks as well as humidity and freezing temperature situations. Each detector can be easily located in places around the home most prone to water leaks, such as under kitchen sinks, hot water heaters, toilets and various appliances. It then delivers smartphone alerts via the Roost app to help minimize water damage and loss.
“Roost’s partnership with American National is something that we are proud to announce,” said Roel Peeters, Roost CEO. “By deploying the full Roost solution, we will help American National meet their goals of increasing customer engagement and providing peace of mind to their policyholders that their home is protected, even when they are away.”
Roost’s Home Telematics solutions are changing the way insurers engage with their policyholders, mitigate fire & water claims and drive new business growth.
