Meet Stan – He Doesn’t Like The Word ‘Artificial’ But He’ll Take ‘Intelligent’ | Stangen

In a not too distant future, your online purchases will be delivered to your front door by a swarm of drones. Your car will drive you to work while you sit in the back seat, and your fridge will work out that your favourite bar of Swiss chocolate is all but finished and will be smart enough to place an order for you.

What will the world look like in 10 years from now? The same, but different, is probably the right answer.

If you are old enough to think about life insurance, you will remember a time when the fax machine was the undisputed champion of technology (the Mike Tyson of Bits & Bytes). The idea of scanning in a document and using a telephone line to deliver the message was ground-breaking.

Then email hit the scene and phones stopped being just phones.

The birth of the real digital age suddenly emerged from underneath that relic we refer to as a fax machine and the rest, as they say, is history.

Technology is moving so fast it’s incredible to think what the limits are.

One thing is for sure – all these advances in technology have made for more convenience.

  • It’s far more convenient to have a drone deliver your new pair of sneakers to your front door
  • It’s far more convenient for your car to drive you to work
  • It’s far more convenient for your fridge to place a chocolate order

In a world filled with endless deadlines and time constraints (ironically brought on by advances in technology) the same technology is looking to take some of the life hacks away completely.

Meet Stan our Chatbot

Stan is part of a new breed of computer technology (Chatbots) designed to simulate conversations with humans.

Why would someone want to chat with a computer programme rather than a human?

A couple of reasons spring to mind:

  • A Chatbot is available 24/7
  • A Chatbot isn’t looking to sell you anything
  • A Chatbot has no agenda (except giving you the information you need)

If you are looking for a life insurance quote, but you don’t have the time (or the inclination) to talk to a consultant, this is probably the solution for you.

So, this is how it works:

Step 1

You click this link to begin a chat with Stan.

Step 2

Stan asks you for a couple of personal details so he can generate a quote for you.

Step 3

Stan then comes back with a preliminary quote. You can either decide to accept the quote, change your cover, request a call back from a living, breathing human or complete your application online.


Step 4

Before you go Stan will ask you if you want to sign up to the Wise About Life blog, which sends out weekly educational content to keep you “Wise About Life”.

Why don’t you click this link and start a chat with Stan today? Then leave your comments below.

Until next time.

The Wise About Life team.
