These strategies to bring our business closer to the customer will also add value to different stakeholders, including our business partners such as our agents, while allowing SLIC to capitalise on diverse business opportunities, including new growth opportunities. Today we are taking a leap forward partnering with Dialog Axiata PLC. With the launch of the ‘Genie App’ it will support our aim of providing extensive reach for the ease of our customers increasing the accessibility through different platforms. SLIC customers will further benefit from the utmost convenience of making cashless insurance premium payments while enjoying a hassle free, secure payment experience.”
