Through the partnership, bolttech and Tune Protect aim to offer customers a convenient and seamless end-to-end customer experience for device protection solutions.

Recent data reveals that the smartphone user penetration rate in Malaysia in 2022 stands at 88.79% of the population, which bolttech said has steadily increased over the last five years.

Consequently, more customers are exposed to the daily risk of device damage.

The partnership between bolttech and Tune Protect aims to meet the growing demand for device protection and support services in the market.

The device insurance coverage is underwritten by Tune Protect Malaysia, providing protection for cracked screens, accidental and liquid damage, as well as extended warranty for insured devices, including smartphones and home appliances.

bolttech and Thai mobile network operator AIS have partnered to deliver embedded protection services

In January, bolttech and Thai mobile network operator AIS have partnered to deliver embedded protection services including mobile device switch and replacement services to AIS customers for the recently launched AIS Care+ programme.

The AIS Care+ programme allows customers to switch or replace their smartphones and tablets flexibly for any reason and at any time from the comfort of their homes. Customers can get doorstep delivery with a money-back guarantee that ensures they are supported in a timely manner, as little as within 6 hours in Bangkok.

Both these features are a first in the market for Thailand. The plan includes a “no questions asked” option for customers to exchange their current mobile device for a different brand, colour or model. bolttech also provides a complimentary screen replacement service now bundled with the AIS Care+ plans.
