  • 2014 Insurance Trophy – Digital innovation category

For the 13rd edition of the Insurance Trophies, the trophy in the Digital Innovation category was awarded to BPCE Assurances for Glassistance. The jury, made up of professionals and journalists, recognized the quality and novelty of this application.

BPCE Assurances positions itself as a forerunner by developing the first insurance application on Google Glass. With Glassistance, developed with Altolabs, it is possible to react live on the scene of a traffic accident. Using the application that the insured has installed for free on its Google Glass, he/she can connect to a remote claims manager via video. The claims manager is transposed to the scene of the accident via video-conference and can help the person calling fill out the accident report. The insured then sends directly, with the same application, the pictures of the accident and the filled out report.
