From IMACare to L@B IMA: continuous innovation
IMA Italia Assistance always looks for new solutions that meet needs and demands received from the society. IMACare is inspired by this approach, and is point of reference for planning, guiding and providing solutions to the needs of care and support of familiar caregivers. IMACare combines non-profit and responsible profit, in order create a service model with high social value.
The innovation attitude has always accompanied the actions of the whole IMA Group. This is why L@B IMA was born, a collector of ideas which allows you to discover, experiment and understand.
Innovation is nourished by openness
That is why we support and nurture a whole ecosystem, to enhance our products, our services and our tools.
Taking an open innovation approach, we have developed partnerships with startups including Pop Valet, Mobility 24 in Portugal, Liberty Rider, Coorganiz, Oohee, Hopways and My Jugaad. This openness is a commitment that has taken on an even greater dimension with the commitment within the regional initiative accelerator French AssurTech, of which the IMA Group is a co-founder.
