Fairfirst Insurance clinched the title of best website insurance at the Web Awards 2018 organised by the esteemed Web Marketing Association in USA. 

Now in its 17th year, the WebAward program is the longest running annual website award competition dedicated to naming the best websites from across 96 industries while setting the standard of excellence for all website development. Each entry is evaluated against a number of criteria such as Design, Innovation, Content, Technology, Interactivity, Copywriting and Ease of use. 

Former recipients of the award include some of the biggest names in insurance like GEICO, AXA and Liberty Mutual. Fairfirst Insurance is incidentally the only Sri Lankan insurer to have succeeded in claiming this international title. Supported by cutting edge technology and the remarkable design and development capabilities of Antrya Solutions – a boutique digital services agency, Fairfirst sets the bar high with its user friendly and refined website.

Fairfirst has been consistently investing in tech driven products and propositions making them the only insurer that’s home to an end to end online insurance purchasing platform. The shop which has radically transformed how insurance can be purchased offers insurance for vehicles, motorbikes and most recently pets. Fairfirst also launched its very first artificial intelligence based chat bot named Machan, yet another tech driven breakthrough which expedites the claiming process and provides customers real time information on the status of their claim. Once again, Machan has been seamlessly integrated to the website making him accessible to people from anywhere at any time. 

The Fairfirst website provides users an easy to navigate layout that displays the various personal and business and institutional insurance covers offered.
