Collaboration between disaster prevention app "Kokodayo" and insurance management app "Our Insurance" | Collaboration to realize peace of mind for families and loved ones!

ZENETECH, which provides "Kokodayo," a disaster location information sharing application that automatically notifies the whereabouts of family members and loved ones in the event of a disaster using its patented technology, and iChain, an InsurTech company that develops family insurance management applications such as "Uchino Insurance" have collaborated!
We aim to build a platform for watching over families to achieve security and safety.

Purpose and Background of Collaboration

In recent years, people have become exposed to various risks, including the growing impact of natural disasters such as earthquakes and typhoons. ZENETEC's "Kokodayo" not only detects disasters immediately, but also allows users to know the location of their family members and loved ones in the event of a disaster and contact them. As of January 2023, "Kokodayo" has been downloaded a total of 1 million times.

On the other hand, iChain believes that even though many people in Japan have insurance, they do not receive the full benefits of insurance because the claims process is complicated and tedious, or they are unaware of the need to file a claim in the first place or forget to do so, even if they suffer some kind of damage in the event of a disaster. This is because they are unaware that they need to file a claim in the first place or forget to do so.
iChain has developed "Our Insurance" as an insurance management application that allows centralized management of insurance for such matters and is always at hand, a service that is close to policyholders and their families.

We believe that "Kokodayo," which provides "knowing" when something happens, such as a disaster, and "Our Insurance," which provides "protection" in case something happens during a disaster, can complement each other to build a platform to realize safety and security for families and loved ones, as well as collaboration between the applications, In addition to the collaboration between the two apps, the two companies have also decided to collaborate on the development and provision of services that leverage the knowledge of both companies.

Details of this initiative

The "Kokodayo" disaster location information sharing application and the "Our Insurance" insurance management application are linked to each other, making it easier for users of each application to notice and use the services.

Future Movements

In addition to closer collaboration between the "Kokodayo" and "Our Insurance" services, ZENETEC, with its knowledge of "knowing" when something happens, such as a disaster, and iChain, with its knowledge of "protecting" when something happens, are considering developing new services to protect families and loved ones by leveraging their mutual knowledge. The two companies are considering the development of new services to protect families and loved ones by leveraging each other's knowledge. We are considering joint development with insurance companies of insurance for evacuation, rescue, search, and other expenses in the event of a disaster, as well as development of supplementary services for such insurance.

What is "our insurance"?

(URL) https://www.ichain.co.jp/lp/uchi_no_hoken.html)
iChain's insurance management application "Our Insurance" is an OEM of iChain Insurance Wallet, which the company has been providing as its own service since May 2018 and was released in December 2021. The company is working with several insurance companies to promote the service with the aim of creating an insurance procedure platform that allows policyholders to directly perform insurance-related procedures in a one-stop shop.

If you have "our insurance" at hand, you can say, "If something happens, don't worry. If you are in trouble, just open "Our Insurance" and you will be safe. In order to provide such peace of mind, "Our Insurance" provides connections with family members, insurance companies, and insurance agents.

In recent years, insurance users have been exposed to various risks, such as the growing impact of natural disasters like earthquakes and typhoons. As a service that is always at hand to prepare for such matters, "Our Insurance" aims to be a service that is close to insurance users.

To this end, in addition to a function that allows you and your family to centrally manage your insurance information and share it with each other, we are studying ways to make the process paperless and one-stop, as an insurance procedure platform that can digitally complete the process from policy management to maintenance and payment claims after insurance enrollment.
