QIC Insured pioneers launch of online SME insurance
As yet another revolutionary offering, QIC Insured – the retail arm of QIC, Qatar’s leading insurer has launched a wide range of insurance products to cater to the small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).For the first time in Qatar, SMEs can now purchase insurance products online and enjoy value added services.
SME owners can now log on to qic-insured.com and purchase insurance covers such as property all risk, business interruption, workmen’s compensation, personal accident benefits and many more such covers easily from their workplaces. Once purchased, the issued policy will be sent directly to the customer’s e-mail address.
Commenting on the launch of this unique product, Mr. Ahmed Al Jarboey, Senior Claims Manager says, “Our consistent approach towards customer focus and ease of doing business were the primary drivers for launching this new product. Most entrepreneurs and SME managers are busy people who struggle to find time to visit branches to buy mandatory insurance products. We are therefore happy to extend our online product offering to cater to this important customer segment. With the convenience of shopping for their insurances online, SME owners will now be empowered to manage risks effectively while focusing on growing their business.”
He continues, “Qatar is experiencing a steady increase in the number of SMEs and this trend is expected to continue as the Nation prepares itself for self-sufficiency and hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup. We wish to facilitate this growth by making it easier for SMEs to get their insurances and support the anticipated growth of the country.”
