Club Marine App a finalist in top industry award

Club Marine Platinum Dealer awards

Club Marine is excited to announce we've been selected as a finalist in the prestigious Australian Insurance Awards in the Innovation of the Year category for our Club Marine App.

The awards are the RFi Group and Australian Banking and Finance Magazine (AB+F) celebration of innovation achievements in the insurance industry, with 11 award categories across general and life insurances.

Since launching the Club Marine App in April, we’ve recorded 7710 downloads and clocked up some 264,000 screen views and 179,000 visits. Of the registered users, 39 per cent aren’t Club Marine members, indicating we’ve significantly built awareness of our brand and are providing a valuable resource to Australia’s boating community.

The app was built by Early Warning Network (EWN), a specialist in monitoring and reporting weather events. Using the alert functionality, we have sent out 351 severe-weather alerts to registered Club Marine members. Feedback indicates the weather alerts have helped them secure their boat before a weather event struck, avoiding possible loss for the member and reducing claims costs for us.

Other features proving popular among Club Marine members include the online policy management function, which allows them to renew their policy, update policy details and produce a Certificate of Currency, along with the Conditions section, which provides a seven-day marine forecast.

Club Marine CEO Simon McLean is pleased that the app has so rapidly gained popularity among Aussie boaters.

“The Club Marine App is changing the way boaters interact with Club Marine and is a great opportunity for us to share the extensive boating experience of our staff and our industry partners with members and non-members alike.

“The Australian Insurance Awards nomination as a finalist for the Innovation of the Year is a significant achievement for Club Marine and a terrific accolade for the Club Marine App,” said McLean.

The award winners will be announced at the Australian Insurance Awards, to be held in conjunction with the Australian Insurance Innovation Summit on October 13 in Sydney.

Just another reason why boating’s just better with Club Marine.
