NN and The Glue offer consumers a novel way to look after their insurances

Brussels, 28 February 2019 – Customers of life insurer NN can now quickly and easily view their NN Strategy contracts with the NN connect application, 24/7.

The app is developed in collaboration with The Glue and provides secure access via the digital identification app itsme®.

A reliable and user-friendly app for life on-the-go

After installing the iOS or Android app, customers with an NN Strategy contract can access their wealth data and investment strategy, follow the performance of their assets and revenue. They can also verify their minimum level of protection, view contract beneficiaries, and track all transactions that have been carried out from 2017 onwards.

NN connect has been designed on top of The Glue’s technology platform which reduces the dependency on legacy backend databases, while aggregating all data and orchestrating the front-end user interactions.

“Thanks to The Glue’s expertise in digitizing financial services, we have succeeded in developing an application fast, meeting our requirements perfectly. The Glue’s flexible approach allowed us to add advanced features answering the needs of our customers. This partnership is important for NN, as the use of innovative digital technologies is a key condition for our development in Belgium,” explains Jan Van Autreve, CEO of NN.

Jurgen Ingels, Chairman of the Board at The Glue, adds: “This solution is just one single use case resulting from our joint view on the future shape of financial services. We will continue to work with NN and explore new ways to accelerate their ability to deliver engaging digital services to their customers.”

NN uses itsme®, an app developed by the consortium Belgian Mobile ID. It makes the app more user friendly and secures the privacy of customer data. It creates a unique digital identity that allows the user to securely connect to applications and websites without using passwords, secret codes, or card readers. The Glue features a standard itsme® integration.

Digital with a human touch: the central role of the broker

NN believes the broker is inextricably linked to great personal service. They remain the customer’s main contact, and the new digital service saves both the client and the broker a lot of time, allowing brokers to find the best solutions for their clients.

Jan Van Autreve, CEO of NN explains: “A modern approach, based on digital tools, does not mean the disappearance of the human dimension, especially in the field of insurance, where contracts are undeniably linked to important moments in your life. That’s why, in addition to the convenience and speed of digital services such as our NN connect app, we believe that our customers need personal advice and tailored support.”
