Discovery Insure, a subsidiary of Discovery South Africa, is embracing Internet of Things (IoT) to augment their signatory solutions and bring new solutions to the market, providing their clients with even more value.

Discovery Insure has concluded a partnership with SqwidNet, the Sigfox Operator in South Africa.

“Discovery are excited to be partnering with SqwidNet and the opportunities this presents us with,” says Ilan Ossin, Head of Telematics for Discovery Insure.

“As a data-driven business who uses this information to change behaviour and reward clients for improving the way they drive, the LPWA networks and more specifically Sigfox through its local deployment with SqwidNet will be important for us to expand our telematics and technology offerings in the insurance space.”

The partnership between SqwidNet and Discovery Insure is proof that the uptake of IoT is accelerating in South Africa, with an end-to-end ecosystem of specialist providers that can help with more sustainable solutions to customers.

SqwidNet is driving innovation through a nation-wide IoT network that is low-cost and low-power. With its growing partner network, SqwidNet gives business access to an IoT ecosystem that brings their assets to life.

“This is an opportunity for us to cement our commitment to driving innovation through IoT in South Africa,” says Phathizwe Malinga, managing director at SqwidNet.
