To redesign and reshape travel insurance for Tokio Marine Insurance Vietnam (“TMIV”) by adopting a digital-first approach amidst the opening of government borders in Vietnam. The solution would need to be implemented in the system within 2 months to meet the increasing demands of COVID-19 travel insurance.
As an insurance company operating in Vietnam, TMIV needed a digital-first approach to provide travel insurance post-pandemic that was fuss-free and easy to access for their travel needs – both locally and globally. It was pertinent that the solution does not disrupt its existing business model but rather amplifies its products as well as having it integrated with its retail website, Fermion Merimen’s back-end core system and TMIV’s underwriting eTravel engine. This operation had a short runway and it needed to coincide with the launch of the ANA Airlines travelling programme, whereby their international flight schedule resumes as soon as the restrictions on international borders are lifted.
To implement an efficient travel policy distribution platform which integrates with existing business model and systems to enable a seamless and straightforward approach to travelling post-pandemic while other stakeholders look to implement policies to strengthen processes post-pandemic.
TMIV successfully launched Fermion Merimen’s ePolicy platforms within 2 months in 2019.
With ePolicy, TMIV implemented a digital-first approach for travel protection, especially useful with destinations that require travel insurance upon entry.
Met with a 2-month deadline, the processes were divided into shorter phases. In each phase, Fermion Merimen analyzed and performed penetration testing concurrently, with specific objectives to be fulfilled in each phase.
