While I was traveling to Barcelona over the last weekend, I missed that the official LIC Mobile app hit the Windows Phone Store to the delight of Windows Phone users in India.
Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC – www.licindia.in) is an Indian state-owned insurance and investment group, and the largest insurance company in India with an estimated asset value of US$250 billion.
The app is targeted for both customers as well as company’s marketing personnel. The app provides options for viewing LIC insurance plans, premium calculation, checking policy details, and applying for a new policy. The app also serves notifications for due premium, matured and lapsed policies, and due survival benefits.
You can also pay premium for your existing policies from within the app.
For LIC agents, the app provides a customer directory and their premium calendar with notifications for due premium, lapsed policies, customer birthdays, and official circulars.
There’s also a branch locator feature, which gives you locations of LIC branches in a particular region with complete address and contact details.
The only thing the app misses is the ability to check previous payments and to add your policies to the account. You can do both from the main website, so it’s a little odd to have the functionality missing in the otherwise well-rounded app.
If you are a LIC customer, there’s no reason you shouldn’t install this very well designed and utility app. You can download it for free for Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store.
