Once upon a time (2017 to be exact) our founder and CIO, Jonathan Walker’s cellphone and laptop were stolen. At the time he was running a software consulting business and was a developer himself, so this was pretty much Armageddon for him – a state of hell made even worse when his insurer took six long, endless, weeks to pay out his claim.
Surely there had to be a better way than this BS? An insurer who could pay out a claim in hours rather than weeks?
Well since none existed, we decided to create one, and ta-daa, Granadilla was born.
Granadilla was written from the ground up using the things we know and love, machine learning, AI, algorithms, automation etc. We wrote the solution from code line 1 with our customer (you ;)) always front-of-mind to remove the very real frustrations of dealing with traditional insurers stuck in the Jurassic age, and we have built something superb – if we might say so ourselves 😉
A refreshing take on insurance that puts you first with an app that is simple, intuitive, adaptive and easy to use.
Granadilla was launched into the App Stores on 25 July 2018 and we have been very fortunate to experience fantastic uptake.
