Trov helps people avoid underinsurance by tracking the value of the things they own


Suncorp, Australia’s leading insurer, has partnered with Trov, a US technology company that helps people organize, value and protect the things they own via their mobile device.

The Trov mobile app automatically organizes information about the things people are buying, including receipts and market values, and stores it securely in the cloud. Trov users can then quickly access details about their things when they need them – which is particularly important in the event of an insurance claim. After less than a year since launch, over $3.5 Billion worth of items have been added to Trovs globally with over $13 Million worth of new items being added daily.

“With Suncorp, we’ve partnered with one of the world’s most innovative companies,” said Scott Walchek, Founder & CEO of Trov. “Together, we’re breaking new ground, paving the way for an entirely new way to insure using a mobile device.”

In the first phase of the partnership, Trov users in Australia can easily connect to specially trained Suncorp Insurance representatives directly from their Trov to discuss insurance options for their things.

Suncorp Insurance Executive General Manager, Customer Product and Pricing, Lisa Harrison said approximately one third of people in Queensland, Australia either don’t have sufficient contents insurance, or are unsure if they are adequately covered*.

“Trov will give people the knowledge necessary to make informed decisions when it comes to selecting the appropriate level of cover to protect the things they value the most. Because it is so easy to use, provides up-to-date valuations and a direct link to Suncorp Insurance, Queenslanders will be in a better position than ever before to ensure they have sufficient cover for all that they have,” concluded Ms. Harrison.

Trov is currently available for free on iPhone and Android in the US and Australia. Click here to download.
