AA launches new online vehicle claims journey for customers
- Delivering seamless digital claims experience to members and policyholders.
- AA investing in tech as part of customer-centric digital transformation
- Partners with claims platform specialist RightIndem
The AA is accelerating its modernisation and tech transformation by launching a new digital claims platform for members and insurance customers through Accident Assist.
The new service is available on the AA’s app or website and users will be able to self-serve and report a motor insurance claim, avoiding the need to contact the call centre.
The AA has teamed up with RightIndem and over the next 12 months, the platform will evolve to provide a complete end-to-end online customer journey including the ability to track the progress of a claim.
Tim Rankin, managing director of AA Accident Assist, said: “This launch supports our ambition that Accident Assist becomes the natural first contact for all our members and insurance customers after an accident. We know that customers increasingly expect a digital experience, and we’re delighted to now offer a simple and easy to use online journey. This investment is one component of a wider customer-centric strategy to build for the future at the AA.”
Oliver McGuinness, CEO of RightIndem, said: “The AA have provided us with a clear vision for their vehicle claims customer experience offering and our platform is central to delivering on that vision. We’re really proud to have been selected as partners and look forward to delivering further business benefit to the AA and their customers as we develop deeper digital claims capability in the coming months and years.”
