Background
Babel Cover is an early stage insurance technology startup ushering in a sustainable, transparent, and rewards linked insurance ecosystem. The company creates transparent personal insurance products that incentivize users to build loyal risk-conscious profiles.
The company has set a grand yet realizable vision to democratize insurance and bring consumers closer to the source of risk capital thereby building more resilient, transparent and cost-effective inter-connected financial products.
Business challenges
  • Build a fast-loading and user-friendly mobile application, which will enable users to: - quickly and easily purchase an insurance policy - report an incident right from their mobile phones.
  • Create a customer loyalty program by providing a cashback (called ‘rewards’) in case there were no incidents during the insurance period. The purpose is to encourage bicycle riders to drive carefully and see after their property.
  • Provide users with an ultra-secure data storage and payment processing, including private e-wallets that hold customers’ rewards. Make stored data accessible only to users.
Value delivered
  • Built a Progressive Web App which allowed Babel Cover to significantly cut costs on mobile app development and launch faster, at the same time providing its end-users with an enhanced mobile experience.
  • Integrated Blockchain for safe payments processing.
  • Created an effective and easy-to-manage administration panel to control the data and update the conditions when necessary.
  • Embedded a complex logic and high accuracy of all the insurance calculations depending on the chosen scenarios.
  • The solution delivered is ready for scaling by adding new insurance products in the future.

Solution delivered
Progressive Web App
Created an easy-to-use and fast-loading Progressive Web Application that allows customers to use the application even with low-end mobile devices, poor network connection, or in an offline mode. This way, users can easily purchase an insurance policy and report an incident wherever they are just using a mobile phone.
UX and UI design
Built a responsive solution with intuitive UX, as well as visually-appealing UI design according to the company's identity. The user interface allows clients to select the required insurance options easily and helps them fill in the required information.
Blockchain (ChainLocker) integration
Used Blockchain and integrated ChainLocker to provide users with an ultra-secure data storage including private e-wallets that hold customers’ rewards. The main challenge was to make stored data accessible only to users, which we successfully solved. Only if some problems with the funds withdrawal occur, then the company can get access to private data of users and fix the issue.
Insurance calculations logic
Embedded a complex logic and high accuracy of all the insurance calculations depending on the chosen scenarios. Also, we included a high scalability perspective to add other insurance products in the future.
Customer loyalty program
Implemented a customer loyalty program by providing a cashback (called ‘rewards’) in case there were no incidents during the insurance period.
Administration panel
Created an effective and easy-to-manage administration panel to control the data and update the conditions when necessary.

“Babel Cover is a revolutionary product in the insurance domain, and I’m happy that we had a chance to contribute to its success.
Speaking about some of the technical solutions, we used the Amazon Web Services infrastructure to integrate with Blockchain technology and provide scalable, reliable, and secure data storage.
We also cached data from ChainLocker to boost the application’s performance and increase the page load speed. Docker helped us to simplify the development process, deploy the source code, and launch the project faster.”
