The Swedish insurtech company Omocom, together with risk carrier W.R Berkley Insurance AG, is launching their brand-new product for refurbished electronics with the no.1 re-commerce platform for reconditioned apple devices in Portugal, Forall Phones. The product functions as an all-risk insurance, valid for 12 months from purchase, with the possibility to prolong for another year. The voluntary insurance will be available for Forall Phones consumers both on their e-commerce store, as well as being available at point of sale in all of Forall Phones’ network of physical stores.
Circular all the way
All claims handling is managed personally by Omocom's experienced claims handlers, and when a device needs to be repaired or replaced, Forall Phones will be the main partner, thus keeping the process circular in every way possible.
"We are delighted to be integrating our innovative on-demand insurance solution for refurbished electronic devices into Forall Phones' e-commerce platform and across its network of national stores. It truly is a match made in circular economy heaven, as both our companies are perfectly aligned in practicing and supporting the values of keeping products in use. When one considers that 50 million metric tons of e-waste is generated every year, then both Portugal and the planet is grateful for companies like Forall Phones, which actively helps to cut this e-waste by refurbishing used electronic devices, whilst Omocom supports them by offering the insurance protection that these still viable devices deserve.", says Damian Roach, Regional Manager - Southern Europe, at Omocom.
“The increased environmental concern for electronic waste and the inequalities of access to premium technology motivated us to change the rules of the game and create the first Portuguese Brand fully focused on selling refurbished goods back in 2016. But what made us thrive? The quality of our devices and the close connection to our customers, our Forall Family. We want to offer them the best possible experience and make them aware of the positive change they’re creating on the environment. That’s why this partnership makes so much sense – we are giving our Forall Family the possibility to protect their devices as much as they protect the planet”, Ricardo Jorge, Head of Marketing at Forall Phones.
