“This would deliver immediacy and convenience to our customers by leveraging WhatsApp, a popular household messenger app that allows our customers to easily retrieve their insurance policies whenever they want, gain answers to their queries instantly 24-7 or even download claim documents,” he said in a statement.

With 86 per cent internet penetration in Malaysia , Rangam said Gibraltar BSN sees plenty of opportunities to deploy digital solutions that can further enhance the level of customer engagement and experience.

“Today’s launch of our innovative WhatsApp initiatives marks another milestone in our digital transformation journey and we will continue to expand our digital capabilities and reach to ensure that protection can be easily accessible to all Malaysians,” he added.

Upon policy issuance, a Gibraltar BSN customer will receive an SMS informing them that their e-Policy is ready together with a link to download the e-Policy on WhatsApp.
