Based on the type of insurance and the insured asset or entity, physical verification and eligibility are required. GirikSMS Salesforce Chatbot can ask the customer to share pictures and videos of the asset (eg. property or vehicle) to inspect the damage (eg. an accident) and route it to a human agent for further action.can also use machine learning or computer vision technology to verify and assess the damage and ascertain liabilities depending on the policy type.
Once the process of damage assessment and evaluation is completed, the GirikSMS can inform the policyholder of the claim amount and initiate automated payment to the policyholder’s bank account.

Brokers are firms that sell insurance products on behalf of insurance companies. In simple terms, they are authorized insurance product re-sellers.
Q & A
Though brokers are quite knowledgeable on the insurance products they work with, there are occasions when they face complex customer inquiries, or routine queries that take up a lot of their time. Brokers can rely on GirikSMS to resolve these queries quickly so that they can focus on more complex queries.
Communicating new policies
When a customer signs up for a new policy, that broker needs to ensure that the insurance company starts the coverage immediately. Failing to do so could lead to legal claims in case the insured asset (eg. a vehicle) meets with an accident the same day.
Most of the communication about changes in existing policies or new insurance products happens over email making the information exchange between brokers and insurance firms disconnected. GirikSMS App can bridge this gap by enabling brokers to access the latest changes or additions over chat and keep policyholders updated.
