Curacel partners UTU, to increase trust in Insurance across the internet in Africa

April 28, 2021

UTU, the company building the trust infrastructure of the internet, provides solutions to increase conversions for many industries and increasing trust across the internet – with Curacel.

The AI-powered solution, developed by technology company Curacel, enables insurers to automate claims seamlessly and also track fraud, waste and abuse in Africa, helping to drive Insurance inclusion on the continent.

The Curacel x UTU Integration

UTU will work with Curacel towards releasing socially-powered Insurance concepts that marry traditional models of social insurance with formal modern insurance offerings. 

With Insurance companies serving only around 3% of the African population, the vast majority of Africans still rely on social insurance, as in the “Harambee” (self-help) model of Kenya where people turn to their friends and family in times of trouble. 

As part of this partnership, the UTU Trust API will be integrated into Curacel’s platform, to identify trusted insurers and insurees, and provide recommendations on the Insurance plans that best-fit customers needs. 

Both Curacel and UTU Trust founders – Henry Mascot and Jason Eisen respectively, said:

“We are incredibly honoured to work with Curacel to enhance its AI-driven platform to help insurers build their reputations through automated claims processing and fraud detection. At UTU we firmly believe that trust is at the core of service provision and customer satisfaction in any sector. It’s exciting to know that UTU’s infrastructure will complement Curacel’s existing capabilities to help drive insurance inclusion in Africa. Together we can help insurers save costs while serving happy customers.”

Jason Eisen, Founder and CEO of UTU

“This is a partnership that will help Curacel get closer to achieving the mission of driving up insurance inclusion on the continent. We find it helpful that UTU’s Trust infrastructure helps us to seamlessly work towards providing a much-needed model of insurance that departs from the traditional model and helps serve the interests of insurers and customers alike. We are delighted to go on this journey with UTU.”
