Gwen Khor, Vice President, Affinity, Aon Malaysia said:
We are proud to support Machines in the development and rollout of the MPP. With the ever growing number of mobile devices and the upward trend of device damage rates amongst smartphone users in Malaysia, we believe that this protection plan comes at exactly the right time.
Andrew Cheng, Director of Machines, explained that the Machines Protection Plan will help relieve the cost of repairing or replacing damaged mobile devices that needs to be borne by customers.
Smartphones are becoming an increasingly important part of daily life as more and more Malaysians rely on them for personal and professional reasons. As the use of mobile phones becomes routine, the chances of accidental damage also increases. We are also working on extending the MPP to include new devices purchased from third-party sources such as telcos.
