Otonomi & Sila

Intuitive Parametric Insurance Software to Support the Complicated Logistics Industry

THE GOAL

An Automated Insurance Software That Can Help File Claims, Offer Dynamic Pricing, Provide Fast Compensation, and Limit Risks of Lending for Air Cargo, Ocean Marine, and Ground Transportation (Among Others)

After his own experiences with seriously delayed financial compensation in his insurance claim, Yann knew that something needed to be done to fix the lag and administrative load in the insurance industry. Not only did this industry need a speed increase, but it could also improve transparency, cost-effectiveness, and flexibility. 

Yann had the great idea to add blockchain technology, or smart contracts, to this process to automate it. In order to get his hands on a smart contract technology that interacted well with financial disruption and legal documents necessary in the insurance industry, Yann turned to Sila.

Otonomi & Sila: At a Glance 

A transformative software based on smart contracts that drastically improves insurance automation in logistics

CEO and co-founder of Otonomi, Yann Barbarroux, experienced something that many travelers go through—on a routine trip in Europe, his baggage was lost. However, Yann realized something in the one year of waiting to receive compensation for the lost items—this process can be expedited and improved! 

Yann also had some previous interest in blockchain technology. When he discovered blockchain technology in 2003 with his now partner Sebastian, he realized that blockchain can be applied in unique areas, even going so far as to program a smart contract to support common insurance needs.

With this idea, and inspired to do something to support the logistical and transport frustrations exacerbated by COVID, Otonomi was born. A smart contract-based insurance program, Otonomi adjudicates clients in something like 45 minutes rather than 45 days, compressing administrative costs by up to 90%.

Without Sila

  • Buying or building a smart contract, which would then need to be amalgamated into an app aggregator.
  • Building an app or software capable of handling smart contract technology and payment disruption technology at a low price.
  • Finding a bank agent or banking partner to help them with the financial side, allowing money to be transferred with the right complaints features.
  • With the knowledge of compliance, but finding a partner, technology, and compliance officer that gets what they’re trying to do.
  • Needing to purchase features to add-on later, never really know if those features will work with the product you’re currently building.

With Sila

  • Tapping into Sila’s smart contract and powerful financial technology code at an affordable rate, with integration ready-made.
  • Not needing to link up with other technology, but knowing that everything can connect with Sila.
  • Using Sila’s status as a bank agent, gaining secure access to bank account linking API and pass-through insurance.
  • Using Sila’s compliance features, like KYC and KYB, and more to streamline this process and remain compliant year over year.
  • Able to access Sila’s Fintech Marketplace to add on features any time that they are ready.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Client friendly wallet management for B2B was better at Sila.
