Agara is among the 25 new startups selected to join the Plug and Play Insurtech Program that will run through the month of November 2020.

The Insurtech Batch 9 program is aimed to take the traditional industry of insurance to modern frontiers — by bringing together potential startups in the industry and the largest insurers into one innovation platform. Some of the insurtech innovation partners are USAA, Markel, Deloitte, AON, State Farm, Travelers.

The insurance sector is on the edge of complete transformation, with customers seeking faster and frictionless ways to interact with insurers. Agara’s voice AI solution provides autonomous phone support for all customers’ policy and claim-related queries in a natural and conversational manner.  With insurance contact centers experiencing an unprecedented rise in the call volume, Agara’s real-time conversational AI automates routine customer interactions to resolve queries quickly and allow the agents to handle more complex calls.

“The Plug and Play is the ultimate global innovation platform, and their Insurtech Program gives us the opportunity to partner with the global network of venture capitalists, corporate partners, and top industry leaders. This program would provide us the right exposure to real-world problems that AI can solve in the insurance sector and beyond. We are grateful to their team for considering Agara as part of their cohort.” — Abhimanyu, Co-Founder & CEO, Agara.
