NuVu is an Insurtech at the avantgarde of digital operations.

After several years of exhaustive work in data collection, risk segmentation and thanks among other things, to Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology, Data Analytics or Know your Customer (KYC), at NuVu we have a comprehensive platform developed internally that allows us to adapt pricing for any given risk, thus reducing the asymmetry of information.

This impacts the entire life cycle of our products by improving the quotation and document issuance processes, involving other departments like claims management or accounting, giving us the ability to respond to our insurance brokers within 24 hours through direct communication with the underwriting team.

At NuVu, our goal is to achieve excellence in providing insurance services, and we do this through fast, agile and efficient claims processing. We have a specialized team with extensive experience in the insurance sector, and one of our priorities is the reduction of paperwork.

Our response to a notification of a new file is very agile, designating, in the case of goods transport policies, a surveyor quickly if necessary. As for the firms we use, we collaborate with top-level companies, as well in recoveries management.

We strive to support and serve our clients in difficult circumstances, whatever the situation, by having a single point of contact to accompany them throughout the process.
