Genie, Sri Lanka’s first and only PCI-DSS certified mobile payment app and eZ Cash, the country’s first and largest mobile money and payment service by Dialog Axiata PLC, Sri Lanka’s premier connectivity provider, announced their partnership with insurance giant, Sri Lanka Insurance, to enable real-time, secure and convenient insurance premium payments for insurance holders. 

In a move to provide SLIC policyholders with a convenient and accessible way to make their insurance premium payments, without having to compromise on security, this partnership will allow any SLIC policyholder to make payments quickly, digitally and at their convenience via the Genie and eZ Cash mobile applications (available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store) and micro-site (www.genie.lk) or via eZ Cash USSD by dialling #111#. 

Sharing his thoughts, Dialog Axiata PLC Chief Digital Services Officer Dr. Nushad Perera said, “As a company that strives to empower and enrich Sri Lankan lives and enterprises using innovation and technology, we are proud to partner SLIC to introduce this convenient, digitally inclusive and secure payment method for customers to make insurance payments from anywhere, any time.”

Commenting, SLIC Chief Executive Officer Chandana L. Aluthgama said, “A key strategic move at SLIC has been the decision to embrace technology by introducing new and innovative solutions to enhance efficiencies, productivity and market reach. 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.”
