FirstRand, one of South Africa`s foremost financial services companies, is
the majority shareholder in DirectAxis. In light of the latest trend for
quick turnaround direct insurers, cutting out brokers and their associated fees,
DirectAxis is one of many such companies. DirectAxis uses telemarketing and
call centre agents primarily, ringing up customers over the telephone in a
quick, easy and efficient manner. The customer gets his or her desired cover
without complicated forms, broker commissions or lengthy red tape and
bureaucratic administrative procedures.
On the DirectAxis website you can view their broad products and read about their personal loans
DirectAxis as a company offers a basket of insurance options, as well
as unsecured loans. It offers life assurance, household insurance, car
insurance, travel insurance, and a product called EEZiLIFE, which is a specific
product designed as a low-cost, lower pay-out life assurance that includes
funeral cover. The model that the company uses is to do the legwork on behalf of
clients, sourcing various insurance options to fit the person`s requirements.
These are then presented to customers for them to take the pick of what suits
them the best, and what offers the best value for money. In this sense it can
also be called an insurance aggregator.
The advantages of this are the convenience of easy access to cover that fits
your needs, ease of application and accessibility, informed customer service,
and free quotations and advice. This can all be sourced immediately via the
company`s website, with all information clearly laid out and interactive tools
available via a number of contact point options.
