Finnish insurance company piloting SEP Solutions’ connected baby monitor with services
SEP Solutions has started a pilot with the Finnish insurance company LähiTapiola involving the Oulu based tech company’s product and service offering developed for baby monitoring and for tracking a child’s daily activities, growth and development.
Seeds for the pilot were sown in the spring of 2016 when LähiTapiola organised an Innovation Sprint aimed at developing new types of business and service packages related to improving customer safety. The Innovation Sprint was a very effective way to identify interesting topics from an insurance company perspective, and SEP Solutions was one of the companies that LähiTapiola selected for further cooperation discussions.
One of the goals of the pilot is to gather hands-on experience from LähiTapiola’s customers about SEP Solutions’ product and service offerings, and to assess possible further development ideas that might help ensure that tools and tips for safeguarding and improving precious life are available at the right place and right time.
‘Exploring new, digitalization-promoting solutions for the insurance world in LähiTapiola’s Innovation Sprint was really interesting,’ says Jari Naula, SEP Solutions’ CTO. ‘Now that the pilot is on-going, our focus is on the parents’ experiences when using our system. We’ll listen to their feedback very carefully so that we can develop our services as needed. The opportunity to pilot our baby monitoring solution with LähiTapiola’s customers is also a major step for us towards developing different ways of working outside the consumer market,’ he concludes.
‘We’re committed to preventing accidents and providing our customers with security for life through different services, and we’re best able to explore new solutions when we bring them to our customers for experimentation and evaluation,’ says Valtteri Saurila, LähiTapiola’s Account Manager.
In the last few years LähiTapiola has cooperated with a number of innovative Finnish companies. Through the insurance company’s international partners, successful new ways of working can also be launched outside of Finland.
