Founded in 2011 by Alok Bhatnagar, Divyanshu Tripathi and Neeraj Aggarwala, EasyPolicy, is an insurance comparison website that helps in choosing an insurance plan for its customers by providing information for both – life and non-life insurance policies, across categories.
To help get the right insurance policy, the startup has an advanced search, comparison and filter features.
How It Works:
- Easypolicy maintains a real-time updated records of insurance companies and their products. When a user feeds in their basic information to get the quote, Easypolicy runs calculations to fetch the most relevant and reliable quotes from different insurers.
- Users can select the required product, and can choose the online form to book their policy.
- Depending upon the type of product, users receive insurance policy immediately or with the user’s proposal, it can be forwarded to the chosen insurance company
The startup will use the funds to further build its technology platform, enhance its product portfolio, and strengthen its marketing team.
Easypolicy is Unilazer Ventures’ second investment in 2016. Earlier this week, it had invested in an online gadget accessory store DailyObjects.
