The gold was for the design of Pineapple’s AI and machine learning-based mobile application. Pineapple is a registered financial service provider and Insurtech that aims to reinvent the way insurance is done. With a decentralised peer-to-peer model that aims to reintroduce affinity back into insurance for their young, digital-savvy audience.
The application includes features that help consumers insure items in under 60 seconds. And to submit claims in under five minutes, with no lengthy phone calls or paperwork.
Nichole Shub, Head of Marketing at Pineapple, comments: “We’re thrilled to have our application and partnership with MakeReign awarded so highly at the Loeries. As a relatively new entrant into the South African insurance industry, we’ve aimed to set the bar high in terms of ease of consumer access to our services, and this award underlines what we’ve been able to achieve with the use of modern technology and design.”
Matt Thompson, ECD of MakeReign, adds: “Thank you to the Loeries judges for this honour. Our team really tried hard to deliver a world-class product and it’s been exciting to not only see the positive reaction from Pineapple consumers, but also what our peers believe we’ve achieved too.”
