Alexa, conclude my insurance contract

German insurtech Deutsche Familienversicherung, which recently became the first German insurer to make its policies available for purchase via Amazon’s personal assistant Alexa, has extended this advancement, now allowing the fully digital conclusion of insurance contracts via the assistant. This was prevented previously due to a lack of compatibility between Amazon Echo and Amazon Pay, but it will now be possible for customers with an Alexa to seamlessly conclude a contract that they have purchased from Deutsche Familienversicherung.

Dr Stefan M. Knoll, Founder and CEO of the insurtech, commented: “Through our intensive collaboration with Amazon and Amazon Pay, and thanks to our proprietary IT platform which is a highly modern event and java-based portfolio management system, we have finally succeeded in making the fully digital conclusion of contracts using Amazon Echo a reality.
