Snap Your License: Insurance Use Cases

1. Baloise Group


The Swiss insurer recently introduced a new capability to allow policyholders to submit claims for car or liability insurance using chat, web and/or voice. A side benefit – users can snap a photo of their ID for identification purposes and leverage GPS localization to enter location.




The Santa Monica-based mobile-first initiative allows users to snap a photo of their driver’s license to learn whether they are pre-qualified to get a car with the app. While not insurance-related, is an agency offering car insurance coverage via Assurant.


3. Generali Belgium


The Belgian subsidiary of Generali recently introduced an app to allow brokers to obtain a car insurance quote by uploading a photo of the vehicle to the app, along with the driver’s age. Using geo-positioning and number plate identification, the app calculates the annual premium based on vehicle characteristics and a number of other parameters, to allow the broker to present a quote and submit it to the client within 60 seconds.


4. Go Inc.

The San Francisco-based car insurance provider promises an instant car insurance quote once one uploads a photo of their driver’s license. Instantly finding a phone number on their site is another story.
