Lab activity

Primary focus product area whilst in the Accelerator: Increasing access to insurance I Improving claims process

As a result of joining the Lloyd's Lab Accelerator, ARMD now has an agreement in principle to launch an itemised, embedded tool insurance product with Greenlight Re. The company will also be launching a parametric tool hire voucher with MIC Global. Both products will support ARMD in making tool insurance more available, by offering a variety of products and distribution methods to suit customers' needs. ARMD is able to reduce the time taken for claims processing to 5 days, well below the industry average of 5-6 weeks.
