February 2015 – Sandton’s latest commercial property development, The Business Exchange, welcomes a new tenant, Zamsure. The company, attracted to the Business Exchange’s central location and ease of access, is a division of ZamFin Capital.
Zamsure is an innovative insurance company supplying specialised insurance products to the public. Amongst its portfolio are two very intriguing products covering bicycles and eyewear.
Innovative Bicycle Tracking
Bicycles have changed drastically over the past century and depending upon the application, brand and model, these modes of transport can involve a significant financial outlay warranting equally significant security.
Zamsure’s bicycle insurance includes a covert GPS bicycle tracking device which allows users to accurately monitor their cycling activities as well as to safeguard their unattended bicycle in real time.
It consists of a battery operated motion sensor, specifically designed for monitoring and tracking. This device is linked to a downloadable mobile application and SMS alert notification system. Any movement on the bicycle triggers the device to transmit a signal, relaying the GPS position of the bicycle to an online tracking portal.
Practical Eyewear Insurance
It soon becomes very obvious how important your lenses are after you accidentally sit on them, scratch or lose them. Zamsure, under the leadership of Leon van Vuuren, a qualified optometrist, is familiar with the inconvenience of suddenly being left without your prescription lenses, as well as the costs and laborious administration processes involved in replacing them.
For a fixed premium over a specified period, members may insure their prescription lenses, including prescription sunglasses, against loss or damage. Zamsure ensures that in the case of such an incident, the member is able to return to their normal activities as soon as possible and with minimal disruption. Glasses are covered for replacement or repair throughout South Africa.
