Krungsri Auto Broker launches intelligent assistant KANA to capture InsurTech market

Krungsri Auto Broker, an insurance broker under Ayudhya Capital Auto Lease PCL, a subsidiary of Krungsri Auto, reinforces its digital insurance broker leadership with the launch of the personal accident insurance advisory and sales service on the GO Application by Krungsri Auto. In response to the InsurTech and cashless trends, the chat-based intelligent assistant "KANA" promises to deliver convenience and speed by providing a comparison on protection and premium and directly sending policies to customers' emails, with no requirement on additional document submission.

Mrs. Kittiya Srisanit, Head of Krungsri Auto Group, Bank of Ayudhya PCL, said, "With our commitment as the leader in digital insurance, Krungsri Auto Broker has continually scaled up its innovation capabilities, particularly in leveraging technology to offer personalized policy comparison and a faster and more seamless insurance purchasing experience. To build upon the success of the Krungsri Auto Broker website, we are introducing 'KANA,' the intelligent assistant service, which provides chat-based advisory on our application and facilitates customers through every step, from comparing prices, selecting plans, filling in personal information to receiving policy documents. The service is also our effort to answer the rising mobile commerce adoption in Thailand, which stands at 71% of all Thai internet users and ranks second globally."

Krungsri Auto Broker's KANA aims to deliver the hassle-free experience in purchasing personal accident insurance on the GO Application by Krungsri Auto by offering assistance and asking for the required information in each process. By chatting with KANA, customers will receive the comparison on protections and premiums within one single page. They can also make a payment directly on the application and choose to obtain the policy via email without submitting additional documents.

"Not only does the launch of the personal accident insurance advisory and sales service on the application strengthen Krungsri Auto Broker's leadership in the InsurTech market, it also enhances the insurance service offerings on the GO Application by Krungsri Auto, enabling the platform to serve automobile users' needs more comprehensively. We expect the online premiums across all products in 2021 to reach 285 million baht and strongly believe that the intelligent assistant 'KANA' will be one of the key driving forces behind Krungsri Auto Broker's digital successes," concluded Mrs. Kittiya.
