Ecosure celebrates 5th Anniversary

By Michael Gwasira

Ecosure marked its 5th anniversary celebration today at the Cassava Smartech Headquarters in Harare. It was a great milestone associated with celebration and ululation despite the prevailing harsh economic circumstances.

Ecosure is an extension of Cassava Smartech which is a subsidiary of Econet Group. Ecosure offers insurance services cover to all Zimbabweans directly to their mobile phone.

Ecosure was launched on the 10th of December 2014 and today, the 10th of December 2019 it reached 5 years  of operating. The company was delighted for the unwavering support rendered by its loyal customers and partners.

The Ecosure staff has given their dedication and diligence to ensure the work goes well and prospers. Without their hard-work it would have not been possible to reach the 5 year milestone.

Ecosure General Manager Godwin Mashiri said the company will continue to be innovative and work to leverage on synergies within the group to make its value proposition richer and evolve the product to cater for various market needs.

Ecosure gives convenience for clients by making sure they receive funds if a claim is made. It has engaged over 20 funeral service providers who have more than 100 branches nationwide. These are also claim submission points and customers can also get services in case of a funeral.

It has made use of mobile money service Ecocash to pay claims within 24 hours. If everything is in order, in certain instances Ecosure actually pays within an hour. The service is efficient and reliable according to the Operations Manager Brenda Ruzande .

In terms of bereavement, for a customer to get paid for the claim, they are expected to produce a completed Ecosure Death Claim Form, 2 IDs of witnesses and burial order or death certificate. Claims are to be made no later than 180 days from date of death.

In celebrating 5 years, Ecosure unveiled the Ecosure 5 Fo Sure Promotion  in recognition of its customers and partners. A whopping ZWL 300, 000 worth of prizes will be given away.

It was launched on the 5th of December 2019 and will end on the 31 st of December 2019.
