GreenLife Insurance Broking Limited which is popularly known as GIBL has come up with an innovative sales solution in the form of POS App for the very first time in India. The newly launched, freshly designed POS App is fast, intuitive and complies with industry requirements. At the same time, the app is simple and user-friendly so that POS executives can handle it efficiently and sell insurance policies through it.
Who are POS Executives?
IRDAI had issued guidelines to appoint POS persons to sell pre-underwritten insurance products to improve insurance penetration in India. Since, pre-underwritten products are easy to understand, the training and examination for POS executive are not very stringent. However, POS executive will need to have a minimum qualification of Class 10 and will have to undergo 15 hours of in-house training conducted by the insurance company and once the training gets over they also have to pass an examination to be certified as POS executive.
What Types of Insurance Products POS Executive Can Sell?
In the general insurance sector, POS executive can sell third party motor insurance, personal accident policy, cattle insurance, home insurance policy as well as travel insurance policy. Apart from the regular policies, POS executive can also sell crop insurance, Weather Based Crop Insurance Scheme (WBCIS) and Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Suraksha Bima Yojana.
How GIBL POS App Can Revolutionize Insurance Landscape in India?
Speaking of the first ever POS App at the launch, Subir Mukherjee, CEO, GIBL, said, “We are proud to be the first general insurance company in India to introduce POS App. We believe that, we can empower our POS executives with the right technology for the benefit of our customers. Going forward, the POS App will help distribution of insurance plans in the hinterland of the country at lower cost and enable our POS executive to provide faster, transparent and improved customer service.”
