One Touch Response (OTR), India’s first technology-led on-demand safety and immediate assistance service company today announced a partnership with Policybazaar.com, India’s largest insurance web aggregator to introduce a new Safety Plan for customers, with FREE of cost insurance.
The economically priced Family Safety Plan is priced at just Rs. 2,999/- and includes a 12 month subcription of OTR’s 24X7 on-demand safety & assistance service, along with a personal accident insurance worth Rs. 100,000. In addition to this, the user can avail benefit of emergency services such as tow truck and ambulance worth Rs. 1500 FREE. The Family Safety Plan provides coverage to upto 4 members of a Family who can avail OTR’s on demand 24 X 7 Safety and Assistance services. This plan is available across Delhi NCR.
For a family of four, the annual subscription for the Family Safety Plan works out to just Rs. 2/- per day cheaper than a cup of tea or even the daily newspaper.
Delhi has repeatedly been cited as the most un-safe city for women. Further, when faced with an emergency, which could be a medical one or a breakdown on the road, users do not have a single number to call during their time of distress and can find themselves stressed and therefore able to effectively coordinate between response agencies such as fire services, police and medical services, depending on their emergency. This can result in critical time being lost that can further exaggerate the situation. While several mobile applications exist to deal with individual emergency challenges, they are limited in their applicability as they are not supported by quick action and immediate on-ground response, which differentiates OTR as the only and most comprehensive solution.
Manoj Chandra, CEO, One Touch Response says, “Every other day, citizens find themselves in various distress or emergency situations.During such situations, a quick and professional assistance makes all the difference. Our team at One Touch Response is committed to making cities and communities safe for everyone. Many of our citizens do not have access to personal security or help when they need it the most. Our vision is to help people in their hour of need and to help them coordinate with the police, fire brigade, ambulance or any other service that they require. With the launch of our Family Safety Plan, our aim is to democratise safety and provide on-demand assistance to as many people as possible.
With our partnership with Policybazaar.com, we now bring additional value of insurance from a trusted brand”.
Adding in, Mr.Yashish Dahiya, Co-founder & CEO, Policybazaar.com said, “India has the dubious distinction of leading the charts for road accidents. Such accidents more often than not have serious financial implications for the victim’s family. We are happy to partner with One Touch Response in their quest to bring safety with assurance to consumers. Our intent is to make consumers aware about the importance of financial safety through insurance.”
OTR’s safety and immediate assistance services is accessed via a touch of the button through its app (available on iOS, Microsoft and Windows) or on the phone.
Immediate on-call assistance is available within seconds of a user raising an alarm via the app. While the Incident Managers at the OTR Command & Control Centre are handholding the user during the crisis over the phone, OTR’s on ground physical support teams called Immediate Assistance Team (IATs) are alerted to reach the subscriber within minutes. IAT’s then remain with the user till the emergency is resolved. Depending on the nature of the emergency, OTR coordinates with external agencies such as the police, ambulance, medical services, fire, cab services, mechanics, handymen etc. on behalf of the subscriber. OTR’s extensive database of emergency service providers across locations enables it to address all kinds of emergencies in a swift and responsible manner.
